My 5 week old kitten is throwing up thick beige piles of vomit

Im a little worried about my 5 week old kitten. Just this morning he started to meow. We thought he wanted his mother. So we showed him his mother but he didn't do anything, he just sat there meowing. He kept meowing and meowing and then he started to bob his head, then he vomited up this thick beige pile of vomit. He vomited up 4 piles of that stuff. After that he just sat there with a dazed look in his eyes. He is walking Ok but he just climbs on the couch and sleeps. Is there anything wrong with my kitten?

yes it is nor normal for a kitten to vomit so much especially at his age. he is not yet weaned and should only be eating his mothers milk. So it would be difficult for him to vomit up solids like this.

At 5 weeks kittens can be very susceptible to illness and so i would say a trip to the vets would be in his best interests to make sure he has not got a infection etc.

By the way i do have lots of pages about kitten care which you may find of further interest on my site. here is the first one

I hope he is Ok again soon

best wishes Kate
