Thank you for answering those questions. It sounds like Dallas has a urinary blockage. It is a fairly common emergency situation. Male cats have a very narrow urethra and it can be easily blocked with mucous, blood and urinary crystals. When the blockage occurs they pass little or no urine and the bladder expands like a balloon. That then causes severe pain and if the blockage is not relieved then kidney failure and eventually death occurs. Typically it is caused by infection, crystals in the urine, bladder stones or a condition called idipathic feline lower urinary tract disease. Testing can determine which of those is occurring. The vomiting is a sign that toxins are already building up in his body from the blockage. Waiting overnight could be life threatening so he definitely needs to be seen by a veterinarian immediately. There isn't anything that can be done at home in these situations. If you have more questions please reply back.
