I'm sorry you're going through this.
Call ALL vet clinics in your town; even if they're not open on Saturdays, they might leave instruction on their answering machine message, how they (or another Vet) can be contacted in the case of an emergency.
If that doesn't pan out, can you try contacting a Vet in a neighboring town? Look in the Yellow Pages of your phone book, under "Veterinarians" and see what other options you might be able to find........see if there is a 24 hour emergency vet clinic anywhere around, even if you have to drive an hour to get there. Kitty really should be seen sooner than Monday.
If your cat is an indoor/outdoor cat, please be sure to keep him totally indoors so that you can monitor him.
When taking the to Vet, be sure he's in a proper carrier (not loose in the car) because if he's in pain, he could easily bolt when you open the car door.
