She liked the canned wet food, but still vomited that. She does seem dehydrated. I fill her water bowl everyday, and still she drinks out of the toilet, water cups left unattended, and her own water dish. The last vet visit was a couple hundred, with no result. Her temperment is still great, on the up side

IBD is Inflammatory Bowel Disease and can cause chronic vomiting in cats. Cats can also have bloody diarrhea with mucous. There is no cure for it, but some people have had success in controling it with a raw diet. True IBD (not allergy driven) is treated with prednisone during flare ups.
