I am sorry, I thought I saw that he had been on gabapentin. Huck was on buproprion also. We alternated that with the gabapentin. I do think he is not feeling himself, and as I said, I am not a vet but these signals really do sound like something is not comfortable.
Please ask about it. Some animals never use/need it and some do. Once I got Huckleberry comfortable the transition was amazing. He is still one of the sweetest cats I have ever known and Mr. Formerly Feral now sleeps on my pillow at night.
Please stay in touch and keep us up on what happens.

PS If you end up using the gabapentin, the first few doses may make him sleepy. Their body usually adjust after a few days with no issues.
