Vet Now or Vet Tomorrow

Should we go to an emergency vet tonight, or can it wait until tomorrow?

Last night, we noticed that our cat was a bit lethargic and had some brown discharge coming from one ear. So we called the vet and made an appointment for tomorrow morning. Tonight (conveniently after the vet closed), we noticed that his breathing is weird. He's breathing through his mouth in little short breaths.
Also perhaps relevant is that he's about a month past a four-month upper respiratory infection, which had months of sniffling, but not the short breaths we're seeing tonight.
Does anyone have experience with symptoms like this? Do we need to get him to a vet before the morning?
