a little worried about my 8mnth kitten.

hi guys.

as some of you are aware i'm new to the cat game, i have 2 moggy girls almost a year old now and one of them is having a problem.

since i have had them i have only ever feed them whiskas satchles and dried biscuits, recently though i have changed the wet food to the tinned whiskas.
krissy, this morning after breakie brought her food back up almost straight after eating, it was all wet food. she ran off and tried again in another part of the house. but nothing happened...

should i be worried? what could be casuing this? considering her sister missy isn;t effected....

krissy did something simular about a week ago, but it was mostly digested, gooey, stuff.

considering missy isn;t having this problem i dont know what else to do.

i have used the same food since brands since arrival.

any one help?

Watch her eat and if it seems like she's inhaling her food, her problem might just be that she's eating too fast. Others who have this problem have solved it in two ways: putting something in the food to slow her down, such as ping-pong or golf balls (has to nudge them out of the way to get at the food), and/or elevating the food bowl several inches off the ground (so the food goes down instead of up to the stomach).
