Q. Cloudy left eye - cat is six years old + and keeps eye closed most of the time - no other symptoms observed

A. This is most probably an eye ulceration with an infection. You need to bring him to the vet today as it sounds like he is on the way to lose his eye - he will need to have his eye checked and probably treated for ulcer and infection(usually with several types of drops including serum).
