My cat managed to get at some milk and tossed his cookies yesterday. Now isn't eating up to his usual standard. Is he probably ok?

Yesterday my fluffy cat
knocked a bowl off the coffee table which contained the last remaining remnants of milk and shredded wheat. Before anyone could stop him, he was lapping up some of the milk that has spilled. Unusual as he generally avoids anything aside from his particular cat food.
Seven hours later, he ate his dinner as usual. Three hours after dinner he began making bizarre sounds of the talking cat variety and then hurled up all his dinner. We didn't feed him any more.
This morning I ran out to get some chicken breasts because various sources said that a cat's first meal after tossing his cookies should be plain boiled chicken. When I put down a plate of plain boiled chicken, he of course looked at me as though I were a weirdo and he refused to eat it. So I replaced it with a half of his usual meal. He ate a little of that but not very much.
So, people of mefi, what gives? Is my cat probably ok?
Special possibly unimportant snowflakes: he's on a restricted calorie diet as he was overweight when we rescued him (17.4 lbs), he never has hairballs.
