Our cat is ten years old and a week ago he began vomiting almost on a daily basis, sometimes projectile vomiting, and is extremely thirsty. He can have a meal at 6 a.m. but throw it up at 2 pm with parts still not digested.
He still has an appetite but he doesnít eat as much at one time. After he eats, he will go in the other room and just sit there, motionless, as if something is bothering him. He has also lost weight, probably due to not being able to hold food and lack of food volume.
He sees the vet later this morning for blood work.
He has always been a frequent water drinker, but the last week, itís been a huge difference, a frequent intake of water for him. His frequency of peeing hasnít changed. I havenít noticed an increase in the times he pees.
He isnít overweight, by the way. Like I said, heís dropped weight in the last ten days.
Iím scared because I once had a cat that had a similar problem and they found a tumor near the heart and the cat didnít come back home with me.
Maybe itís a virus.
A few months ago he killed two mice that got in the house. Did he pick up something?
