The person who can help you and your kitty is a vet. Go NOW! He sounds very sick. Good luck and purrs.

Yes you need to take kitty to the vets asap. Now I do not want to alarm you as it is a time of changing seasons. I have had kitties do really odd things for no identifiable reason whatsoever. I do alway run to the vet as safe is not sorry. Purrs prayers and pets to you all!!!

Mr. Kitty

Take your cat to the vet immediately. When a cat stops grooming, it is a sign that he may be very ill. The half closed eyes (usually with the "third eyelid" visible) are another warning signal. I implore you to please seek medical attention for your kitty - the sooner the better. Please keep us updated on his condition!
