My cat stopped meowing

I have a nine yr old cat ... We have noticed that over the last week or so he has stopped meowing ... He opens his mouth like he is going to meow but nothing comes out

This is really something he needs to go to the vet for. Cats, like humans, can suffer from inflammations of the vocal cords which makes it impossible for them to meow, just like laryngitis will make it impossible for us to speak. He could also have an upper-respiratory infection. In any case, you need to at least call your vet and these things seldom get better on their own, only worse. Good luck. Hope he feels better!
