I have a kitten, who will be 1 year old on April 2, 2009. He is not neutered, yet. His father was a domestic short hair, and mother was a siamese cat.
He is an indoor cat, doesnt appear to be overweight, talks ALL THE TIME, loving, affectionate, all around great cat.
This morning around 11:00 he started throwing up all over the house (more than 4 times) and did releive him self (#2) on the carpet once (he has never done that).
He has received his shots and has been dewormed.
When i got home to check on him, (i did not find the vomit) he was sitting down, purring, eyes half open and it looked like drool was comming out of his mouth. He again puked as a placed him on the floor, and when i gave him water he laid on the ground and drank it (he has never drank water laying down before).
I want to wait a day to see if this is just a bug, or if it continues to get worse i will take him to the vet.
There is nothing in my house out of the norm that i believe could have caused this, the only thing i can think of is that i dyed my hair last night and he might have inhaled the fumes?
If any of the information i have given you sounds like anything you have possibly heard before, or if you have any advice on how to make King feel the most comfortable while he isnt feeling his best would be very appreciated.
Thank you for your time.

I think you are right. Wait and see if this passes. It may just be a bug which cats can gets from time to time just like us humans.
To be honest the symptoms could be anything from a bug to eating something that didn't agree with him to a hairball or a illness yet undiagnosed. Hopefully it will pass and he will be back to his usual self soon.
If he is still the same after a day or so then the only answer is to get him checked by a vet. In the mean time make sure he has access to plenty of fresh water.
