my kitten was throwing up for 2 days and now she wont eat also her pupils are a little dilated. She is not her playful self what is wrong?

Hi Jane
Sadly this sort of question is difficult to answer over the Internet. There are many possible causes for cats to throw up, see this page for more possible causes


Kittens can be very susceptible to picking up stomach bugs or viruses and if the symptoms continue or if you notice more symptoms you need to take your kitten to see a vet as soon as possible.

Make sure your kitten is drinking water so as to prevent dehydration in the meantime.

lets hope it is just a little bug that will pass in a day or so.

best wishes Kate
