cats drastic behavior change overnight

by Quint Jenkins
(orange county, ca)

last night my cat was acting normal and jumped into to bed with me to cuddle like always.


this morning I wake up to him laying on the cold floor, two patches of clear adn bubbly throwup on my bed ( not like him) and his bahevior is way different. He is less responsive and prefers to stay away from me. He is normally very vocal and today he is not. He is also breathing differently.

Im starting to get worried. he is 15 years old

Answer from Kate
Hi there are many possible causes for your cat to have thrown up. Often clear liquid indicates a hair ball http://www.our-happy-cat.com/hairballs.html

However as I say there may be another reason. See this page for some possible causes of cat vomitin

If you suspect that he may be suffering from an illness and or the symptoms persist over the next few days then it may be time to take him to see the vet.

In the mean time make sure he has plenty of fresh water available to him and see if his behavior remains the same over the next day or so,

Hopefully it is just a hairball which will sort itself out.

best wishes Kate
