Vomit smells like poo!
We've had our little Burmese kitten, Max for 2 weeks now and he's just over 4 months old.
He has a hair ball the other day but also this morning he vomited next to my girlfriend's side of the bed. It smelled really bad, almost like feces but she heard him heaving and thought it was another hairball. He seemed to try to alert her about it too, funnily enough (he's a smart kitteh).
So, now I am wondering if my cat either got into some hair (I noticed he was trying to chew the carpet on his new cat condo) or maybe he doesn't like the flavor of kitten Science Diet food I've been feeding him (chicken and liver flavor) or maybe I should switch to another brand of we food?
Is it normal for cat vomit to smell so bad? He's really good with the litter box and we keep it clean so I don't think he actually went poo next to the bed, and it wasn't that much but it smelled pretty bad. I read that 'vomit that smells like feces' might be the result of some kind of intestinal blockage or the result of some trauma, but he's full of energy, seems to be able to use the litter box just fine (urine and feces). Hopefully he didn't eat feces or anything.
Anyway, got a vet appointment this Tuesday and thought I would check on this in the meantime. Basically, just seeing if vomit that smells like 'poo' is normal (and I am assuming it was vomit due to the amount and my girlfriend hearing him retch.
Any help is appreciated. I've also read the 17-page food thread and am going to get Max on a mostly-canned diet if I can (he sure does love that Iam's dry tho).
