If he is drinking as much as you think, his urine should be nearly clear, light, pale yellow, even for an uneutered male. The scent they mark with
actually comes from anal glands, but most people think it's the urine. It is not.
If the urine remains orangish, you should try to capture some. If this is not possible, the vet can catheterize him for a sample. I suggest testing if
it remains dark colored. This is a sign the urine is concentrated, and may be due to liver or kidney dysfunction. Seeing as he was trapped for an
unknown time, it would be wise to be safe rather than sorry. My kitty was in severe liver failure after just two days, and even after several days in
ICU, we couldn't save him.
The sooner you act, the better. If he is okay, then you have peace of mind, if not, you may still have a chance, but his clock is ticking. I am glad
he is eating, but it doesn't mean he is out of the woods, yet. Especially with your info.
Good luck, please keep us updated!
