Q. Appetite loss, positive for micoplasma, on azithromycin but not eating, drinking water as normal

A. The loss of appetite is usually due to the fact that the cat cannot smell, without his sense of smell they don't trust what they are given to eat. Try giving him sardines or tuna (anything tasty for cats with very strong smell), it might open his appetite.
