Hi this is DRB and I would be happy to help you with this.... unfortunately the things you are telling me are very concerning for a potential urinary tract blockage. Your kitty should be seen tonight because if his urinary tract is blocked this will result in death if not treated right away. The other possibilities include possible organ shutdown or a slowly developing cancer. Regardless of cause this should be addressed tonight and not tomorrow. I hope this helps you make a better decision for your kitty. Please let me know if you have any questions. Sincerely, DRB
