Your boy is extremely ill. Please please take him into the vet TODAY and do not wait any longer if you wish to save him. I suspect he is extremely dehydrated, and my guess is that he probably has a urinary tract infection or blockage that is causing this problem. He needs immediate attention and cannot afford to wait another day. I am truly concerned about your pet so please let me know what the vet finds.
