Have you considered force feeding your cat? I've had to force feed two when they got sick and found a good resource for it on the web:
http://www.mv.com/users/louise/post8.html . You just have to be careful not to force the food down or they can breathe it in.

It's also important to keep the cat hydrated. your vet can give him subcutaneous injections of fluid. For one cat I had to have a vet show me how to do this as I could not afford a hospital stay for the cat. After my cat got her fluids up she started eating again.

wishing the best for you and your buddy,
brian
