With Boris it was like that every day he was on clamavox when he had a URI. They're gonna be lower activity period while they are getting over their cold. The good news is that once they are done with the meds, they'll more than make up for it.
As long as they are eating, they'll be fine. It's really hard when they have a URI so bad that they can't really smell the food, so they start not eating... The vet recommended the smellier the food the better while Boris was getting over the URI, so that the smell would remind him there's food. I ended up getting him ocean fish flavored food, it was stinky but he gobbled it down like he had never been fed before. If that hadn't done the trick, I probably would have had to feed him appropriate (no onions or other ingredients deadly to a cat) baby food (it's one of those emergency options if a cat is not eating).
But as it sounds like they are both eating for now, you just have to wait the clamavox out.
