    Cat Help

    Wife and I got a cat from the shelter about 5 months ago now and when we took it to the vet, the vet didn't find any problems with it. However, soon after the cat started throwing up its food. We had a lot of theories as to why i.e. (playing right after so ate or ate to much). However, after observing the cat these past couple of months our theories don't hold up. The only thing I can think of is changing her food, but I don't think that will help because the cat throws up at random. It has thrown up right after eating or hours later. Also, 1-2 weeks will go but without a problem then all of a sudden the cat will throw up 1-2 times a day for a couple of days. We have not changed her food, feeding times, or amount. Any suggestions outside of changing food or taking the cat to the vet again?

    Re: Cat Help

    I believe this throwing up issue is why the previous owners gave the cat up. The shelter said the cat was already spaded and all 4 paws declawed when they got it.

    We don't have any plants in the house. Also, the cat is a short hair and we brush her regularly (at least once a week).

    Re: Cat Help

    Does it eat really fast? Maybe another animal makes it nervous.

    It's obviously sick. Take it to the vet or take it the country.

    Does it mow down all at once or does it graze on its dish throughout the day?

    My wife took the cat to the vet and came back fine. I figured it wasn't sick. Maybe I should get a second opinion from a different vet. My wife even when to ISU VET Med alums!

    Re: Cat Help

    I had a wolf hybrid that did something similar. I took it to the vet (after finding a vet taht would see her) and found that she had some internal issues that werent quite right. Called the place I adopted it from and they said it was a known genetic problem in the "breed".

    It got better after I changed its food from old roy to a more expensive brand that the vet said was better fomrulated.

    It grazes throughout the day. Also, I don't believe we are overfeeding it weights the exact same as when we got it 9-1/2 pounds American short hair.
