*** I am not a vet, and don’t take this as professional advice.


I wouldn’t worry too much. I grew up with two cats who lived to 15 and 17. They threw up once in awhile, they got over it, and all was okay. If the cat doesn’t eat for another 24 hours, is not drinking, or continues vomiting past that 24 hour mark, I would see a vet.

If you are worried, a call to your vet when they open is free!

From experience, two of the cats I have had ate their food so fast they would often throw it up. They would eat, then go run around and it would come back up. I don’t think you have too much to worry about 🙂

I had something similar, but turns out Gustave (RIP) reacted to cat grass… silly things i say.

1 episode of vomiting is ok to watch at home as long as she has her normal energy level, and is begins eating and drinking within the next 12-24 hours. If she becomes lethargic, keeps vomiting, has diarrhea or stops eating/drinking I would get her checked out.
