Well, it could be a slipped disc. If he is okay come morning, regardless of paralysis, it's likely that. There's parasitical infections that can lead to kidney failure, or it could be the same problem due to cat leukimia or kitty aids. Has he been checked? If you can get him to a vet, you should. As long as he wants contact, it's a good sign. Animals avoid others when dying. Let me know how he's doing, if there's a change.
