Kitten threw up, started trying to eat it?

I know dogs will eat what they've thrown up but I noticed that my kitten threw up and then as I came back to clean it up she was chewing on it.

Horrible but normal. The sooner after eating it is, the more likely it is to happen.

Lol. VERY normal here....

If MowMow throws up cat food at night, all I ever find in the morning is the stain... no food. Gross, but much easier to clean.

If it happens when I'm home it's a race to see who gets there first to clean it up. Me or Neelix....

When Scout threw up last week, my kitten Olive ran over and started eating it. Granted, it was all undigested (no bile, just mucousy), but still. It was nasty. She seemed to think it was perfectly acceptable though and was very upset when I pulled her away from it.

Mine do it all the time. I read somewhere that when it happens it's actually regurgitation and not vomiting, the food wasn't yet digested. I let my do it - less for me to clean up, and good for the environment.

Yep normal. Also normal for a kitten to try and eat another's poop. Yuck. I removed it immediately and she looked at me like " HEY! I was eating that!"

Cat owners' prayer: "Lord help me be the person my cat thinks I am"
