Throw up cat?

by Tori

We recently adopted (4 days ago) a stray male kitten we found on our property. The first day we got him we gave him some dry cat food which he ravenously devoured, then we gave him some wet cat food and milk. The first night he was fine, along with the second night, on the third day I came home and curled up with him, after a while, he jumped up and went to my door, there he proceded to show me all that he had eaten the previous days. He continued throughout the day, he also threw up a massive fur ball, sleeping for most of the rest of it. Today, he continued, and hasn't eaten much since, (none that we have seen) he hasn't wanted water or anything, and we don't know whats wrong with him. He continues to throw up dry heaves and stomache vile, any help on what we could do would be very much appreciated! please email any help to

well it could be that the food was too rich for his tummy and it has upset him. It could also be another furball if he has already thrown one up.

Try to feed him only plain food for a couple of days and do encourage him to drink as dehydration can hit quickly. plain cooked chicken with no bones should be good but only small amounts, this will help his tummy to settle down.

if he is still the same in another day or so, you really will have to get him to a vets as soon as you can. kittens can go down hill fast.

i hope he is better soon

best wishes kate
