FeatherFool, my kitty likes to go after plastic and other inedible things, and gave me fits a few months ago when he started throwing up after eating almost every meal. After a lots of blood/urine tests, 3 X-rays and ultrasound at emerg vet hospital with specialist vets, he had some "object" in his stomach causing the irritation. Eventually whatever it was, broke up and passed (tho I never saw it in his poop). I think it was a piece of foil that had been around some cheese, as that's the only thing I can think it might be as the vet said on the Xrays, it looked like "something metallic". The vets weren't absolutely sure that it wasn't also something else like IBD as his stomach seemed a little "inflamed", so kitty's been on a prescription diet Hill's D/D for past month or so. He vomits rarely now, but with these kind of kitties that like to eat stuff other than their food, you can't be too vigilant and trying to keep stuff away from them. I certainly can't afford to spent another $2,000.
