Sick Cat throwing up a lot

by Lynette
(Clinton Iowa)

My cat is like 3 years old. He has never really puked but maybe 5 times his whole life. The past 2 days he has been throwing up at least 5-10 times a day and we are not sure why. We can't afford a vet right now and I just hate seeing him soo miserable. We havent changed any food or anything...we did thought give him some cat nip he ate but we've done that in the past with no issues. I just would like some advice, seeing him so upset gets me down. Hes like our baby, part of the family.

Hi well there are lots of different causes for cats to vomit from illness to hairballs. please see this page for more information

However if the sickness continues then i'm afraid your only option is to take him to the vets.

Lets hope it is only a slight bug or something he ate has disagreed with him and that he will recover in a few days.

best wishes kate
