@ams12: If this is new behavior and it’s lasted 3 days straight, then it’s time to take her to the vet. It’s probably nothing, but you have to get it checked out.

One of our cats is a puker. Sometimes we find coughed up food, sometimes we find mucus.  We took him to the vet when this problem started. After a few test, they didn’t find anything serious, only a very mild thyroid problem.

If your cat just started doing this, I personally would take her to the vet, just to be sure.

It doesn’t hurt to get them checked.  Our big orange was throwing up last year to the point where he would vomit up food then kept vomiting until it was just bile.  He did it for 3 days in a row so I took him as it seemed off.  They x-rayed and checked him up/down.  He was fine but they had me give him pepcid for an upset tummy.  Hopefully that’s all your kitty has.  But all the same, cats are the great pretenders and they can hide awful illnesses.  We just lost one of our other cats to anemia/leukemia last wednesday and only found out he was sick 3 weeks ago when we took him to the vet because he was acting a bit funny.  The vet can give you levels of testing based on cost to check it out.  The big thing would be checking for an obstruction.  Is she tender to her belly?  If so, it could be a blockage that they can give them laxitives for.  At the least they can check for the big things and rule them out.  And that can give you peace of mind.

Our dog was frequently throwing up mucus / phlegm and the vet ultimately diagnosed her with minor reflux issues.  We give her a Pepcid pill with each meal now and its never happened since.
