My cat is not eating and throwing up

by cephas johnson

my cat started laying around the house for the last two days, hacking as if he had a fur ball, stop eating, then started vomiting a brown liquid substance.

Answer by Kate
Hi well cat vomiting can be caused by all sorts of things, see here for some possible causes

but it does sound like it could be a hairball

If the symptoms continue for another day or so or if they worsen then your only option will be to take him to see a vet in case there is something else causing the problem.

lets hope it is just a hair ball which he can get rid of himself.

best wishes KAte
