sick himi

He is doing well, he has tripled in size, but he still vomits almost every morning. We have another cat and he is always in a race to eat her food as well as his own (even though we leave out plenty) could he be eating too fast? I know that sounds kind of lame, but our female doesn't seem to have any problems. Thanks for responding! I'm worried but since he is growing at such a rapid pace I'm not that worried.

Has your cat been thoroughly checked out by the vet? If he has, and is healthy, he may indeed be eating too quickly.

One thing that works, if you feed dry food, is to spread the food out in a large roasting pan. This way, he can only eat one piece at a time instead of gulping down mouthfuls.

You might also try feeding him several small meals a day, of good quality food, since that is more satisfying and more easily digested than cheaper brands.

You may have to feed your female elsewhere to keep him from eating all her food too.
