I am sorry to hear you are worried about your cat. I am a veterinarian and will do my best to help.
If you check his gums, are they a normal bright pink color, or do they look pale?
Can you take his temperature with a rectal thermometer (normal is between 101 and 102), or does he feel warm?
Is he eating, and drinking at all?
Sorry for all the questions, but since I can't see and examine him, the more information I have, the better I can help you.
