We can't tell you what is wrong with your cat! Please take him to a veterinarian NOW! There is something very wrong with him and he is in need of immediate medical attention and care. Hope he is okay. Best of luck.

Please take Guest's advice and get your cat to a vet now! We cannot diagnose and suggest treatment for what sounds like a very sick cat over a computer. There are no home remedies or quick fixes for him. I've never heard of a vet who worries about money first and treating a very sick animal later. Please get him to a vet quickly! Good luck and many purrs.

Most likely Kidney failure (CRF). He's crashing. If it is what I think it is, he needs to go see the vet and get some fluid in him right away. It happened to my cat :(. The doctor thought he was going to die within the week because he wouldn't eat, but he ended up living happily for another 3 years. I had to give him sub-q fluid injection every other day though. I hope the vet will be able to help him.
