I am fostering a seven year old cat as of last Thursday. She is vomiting her food every other day, but still urinating and defecating. Is this nerves due to big changes in her life, a need for a change in cat food, or should I take her to the vet?
The vomit is, so far as I can tell, exclusively cat food (ie, not fur balls, plant matter or anything else). I don't have an extensive relationship with her so I can't tell if her behavior has changed. She is still friendly, rubbing up against me and the boyfriend, playing with her toys, hanging out on the windowsill.
Before I was given her, her previous owners took her to the vet to get all her immunizations up to date and give her a check up. She was given a clean bill of health.
She was given to me with a bag of Meow Mix. Should I try a different food?
Should I take her to the vet (after finding an appropriate cat carrier)? I do have a good local vet already so that shouldn't be a problem.
This taking care of an animal thing is complicated and I want to do the best for her I can.
And, because I hear that it is required to post pictures of cute kitties, here's one of her
And if you live in the NYC area: she's up for adoption if anyone is interested. She was in a two cat household, is okay with dogs, is spayed and darn cute.
