Cat vomited multiple times today

Hi members,

My cat Baci (male, neutered age 3) has vomited 3-4 times today since breakfast. He vomited up all the breakfast food (kibbles) as well as the clear goopy stuff which I believe is bile. In between vomits, he defecated and it was very soft and mushy.

If he is not better by tomorrow, he will see a vet.

We have experience with obstructions (with a previous cat) so that is always in the back of our head...but that might be just thinking the worst and maybe it's just tummy upset?

Any advice? What would you do?
many thanks

I don't have any advice (I think it's a good plan to see the vet tomorrow if things don't improve) but will be sending healing vibes your way for Baci

my Bobee does that the odd time when he pigs out and eats too fast, seems to only happen with crunchies. He doesn't seem to chew them at all so he stuffs himself and they come back up. He may just have an upset tummy, do they like catgrass? That seems to help tummies

I would make sure your cat is drinking enough fluid to stay hydrated
He is losing fluid every time he vomit and having lose stools cause him to lose fluid too. I think it would be best to bring your cat to vet for a check and to see if he it hydrated enough. I hope your cat will feel better soon, do you think he could had gotten into anything with you noticing it?

Good to hear Baci is doing better hopefully it was a one off


If it's clear/whitish goopy stuff it's most likely stomach acid but if it's yellow-greenish goopy stuff it's bile
