Customer Question

My fifteen year old indoor cat has nearly stopped eating (a teaspoon or so a day.) He licks at a little water. He still purrs when I pet him. I have 3 cats so I don't know if he is using the littler box. He likes to be out in a back room that is tiled and has had several urine accidents even though there is a litter box there. He looks at me when I call his name but looks confused. Is this his final call or should I drag him to a vet on Monday?
