Older cat (Louise) can't keep food down
I am fostering a 12 year old cat. She was a stray...A rescue group helped me get her foot operated on (she had a large cyst growing out of the pad of her left front foot. It was about the size of a cherry--very sad to look at.)
Anyway, that was done over a month ago. The rescue group kept her while she was recovering from the surgery, and now I'm fostering her until she can find a forever home. She is the sweetest thing.
anyway, she has always had a voracious appetite. She eats alot! It was never a problem before, but I got her back about a week ago. She was fine eating whatever I gave her. Seemed to eat a little at a time. Yesterday she ate, and got up on the bed and threw up this HUGE amount of cat food. It looked like almost a cup of food. I have never seen a cat throw up so much at one time. I took her food away and a few hours gave her just a little bit. She threw it up. Much later I gave her a few more pieces of dry food. She threw it up. She finally got maybe about 10 pieces down. This morning I gave her maybe 10 pieces of dry food and she threw it up. She has been so healthy until now. She's been tested for EVERYTHING and I don't know why this is happening.
It takes a very strong person to manage a feral cat colony. I'm am weakening.
