Hello,

Yes, a yellow tint to the skin indicates your cat is jaundiced, and this, coupled with his not eating, may mean there is a serious liver problem, like hepatic lipidosis, liver disease, or various other health problems; a visit to the vet, ASAP (ER vet center, if your vet is now closed), would be your best course of action at this time.

I hope you're able to have your cat evaluated, today, and that all will be well, once he's diagnosed and treated.
