Pukey Kitty

Misty is 14 years old. She's always been an indoor kitty. She recently had her back leg amputated because of a cancerous tumor. She's getting along fine except she has gained alot of weight and has puking episodes. I always thought she vomited because she ate too fast (she loves her food!) But since the cancer, I worry that she might get cancer somewhere else. The Vet checked and she was clear but that was a year ago. I quit giving her pet treats and she's been good to go....but what should I watch for should the cancer represent itself?

The weight gain and puking mean that she is not fine. The weight could be a sign of thyroid problems. Your cat need to see the vet for a check up and blood test.

As for signs of cancer - impossible to say. Depends on where it reappears.
