    It's probably a hairball Savy. Mimi does it every now and again. One time she did it alot, like a few times a day. Took her to the vet and nothing was wrong with her. Unless it keeps happening, I wouldn't worry about it.

    Its food. not even really digested. no hair...just food...and shes been doing this for a while now...I dont know y. every time after she eats she throws it up...its hardly ever anything else. We've changed her food..i clean her water bowl as much as i can. my friend thinks it cud be stress..but i don't know y she would be...we sont neglect her or anything. and shes been doing it for quite a few months..frequently. 3-4 times in on day and 1-2 days in a week. I dont know if she has a stomach issue or has acid reflex like me?lol cant afford a vet either so..any other ideas on what it cud be or what to try?
    thanx tho omar.

    Eeek, IDK then. That time when Mimi was vomiting for extended period of time, it was food also. Took her to the vet and nothing was wrong with her. Took a vet bill for nothing! lol

    Could have ingested something that could make her sick. Could be many things. If she has been vomiting a lot after eating she needs a vet.

    Hi Savannah,
    Some cats , especially, Asian type. Simply DO NOT chew their food.
    Try purchasing only - really little bits - of dry food brands .
    One of my Burmese, has done this since he was a kitten. (a.k.a. "Chewie")
    We call him the "Puckster"
    I use Buffalo Blue and Royal Canin dry food. Nice tiny bites.
    It does not completely eliminate the problem, but it helps.

    Savannah,
    One more thing!
    Feed her only a little handful at a time---on a large flat plate. ( like a dinner plate) NOT from a bowl.

    I've seen this in dogs, but not cats. A lot of dogs gorge on their food and don't chew. I've seen them choke and vomit after. I didn't think cats gorged their food. Hmmm. A lot of the dogs I grew up with ate like this. My cats never did.

    My cat tends to puke more often if i give him any more than 1/2-3/4 cup of dry food at a time. (also all food, not digested).
    Try only giving 1/2 cup in the morning and 1/2 cup in the evening, see if that helps. Also back off the treats, if you give any, this also seemed to trigger my kitty's vomitting episodes.

    My cat did this when we first got him, and he would eat alot at a time. We took him to the vet and they said it was just because his stressed from moving into a new home, so has your cat had anything stressful happening in her life?

    Good Luck

    She may be eating too fast. I would feed her on a plate or out of a treat dispensing toy like this: PetSafe SlimCat Cat Food Dispenser in Blue at PETCO

    It may also be that the diet you are feeding does not agree with her. Dry food is extremely high in carbohydrates, especially the crappy brands like Science Diet, meow mix, iams, etc. Cats are carnivores and their bodies are not designed to handle all of that plant matter so for some cats, their bodies just start rejecting it which is evident in their medical problems. Whether it's vomiting, diarrhea, or their organs beginning to malfunction you begin to see the strain this diet takes on the cat's system. If you can switch your cat over to wet food (preferably a good brand with a lot of meat in it and not a lot of/no grain or potatoes) that would be ideal.

    I agree- grain free !
    I use :
    buffalo blue , Castor & Pollux -ultramax , and wellness (dry and wet) (occasionally royal canine dry)

    If you are considering a diet change-change things slowly!

    Right ! It could break the bank for sure.
    I have grabbed quite a few coupons for different canned cat foods.
    If you visit their sites to create a "log on".
    ie I got coupons from wellness today.
