Is Your Cat Vomiting? Is it Hairballs or Something Else?

We’ve recently adopted a beautiful Siamese/Hymalayan Cat. He’s about 14 or 15 years old. Every once in awhile he vomits. Since he’s a long hair, hairballs are always an issue. It pretty easy to determine whether he’s vomited hairballs or something else. The hairballs are long and slender. They consist of hair and other fluids. Yesterday he vomited right after he ate. There were no hairballs but some undigested food and fluids. I immediately became concerned. I’ve been changing his food to a more nutritious food. I may be adding too much of the new food too fast. It can be a bit of a challenge when changing your cats food. Their digestive system is sensitive and it may take awhile for your cat to adjust to the new food. Other than that, our new cat Atlantis is doing just fine.

If your cat vomits, is listless, has diarrhea, no appetite or other symptoms, get him to the vet right away. There are many issues that can be causing these symptoms.

Always keep an eye on your feline friend. Report any unusual symptoms as soon as possible.
