Why have you let this go four days without taking your cat to the vet? Your cat must be seriously dehydrated, not to mention miserable. Take the poor thing to a vet NOW. It's silly that you've waited this long. I'm not trying to be mean, but honestly. This kitty obviously needs veterinary attention.
We could not POSSIBLY help you "fix" your cat online. Please, I'm begging you, get him some care. The poor thing can't do it on his own. He isn't getting nutrients and must be dehydrated. This means it is LIFE OR DEATH. Your cat NEEDS water, and nutrients from food. GET HIM TO THE VET.

OJ is right. We aren't vets here and we cannot possibly diagnose your cat's illness. We know vets are expensive but there is no online" fix" for your kitty. Please take him to the vet. He could have been poisoned, have an obstruction....

If you are having trouble with getting your kitty to a vet due to money, try calling the Salvation Army, League of Animal Welfare, and ask the vet office if they know of any programs that will help, or at least a payment plan.
Along with getting your kitty to a vet, try giving your kitty pedialyte (found in the baby aisles) through a dropper. Your kitty has got to be severly dehydrated at this point, but he/she will not want the pedialyte, especially since it doesn't come in fish or chicken flavor. Unfortunately, not knowing what is wrong with the kittly there is no idea if that will help get her by or make her worse...only a vet can tell you for sure.

OJ is right. Take him to the vet TODAY your cat could die if you wait too long.He is most likely dehydrated.
