Hi everyone,
I’m hoping someone can help me get to the bottom of my cat’s recent throwing up. I really want to figure out why this is happening to my 2.5 year old, raw fed male.
The mysterious thing is that he was sick in this same fashion (symptoms, behavior and duration) the exact same time last year….very weird. (and he has not been sick in between last year and now).

He vomits his food not long after consumption, and the food is whole, undigested, and there is lots of bile. It even smells bad.
Other characteristics of this sick bout he is lethargic and quiet, will not eat, drinks a little tiny bit. Last time it took him 3 days to get over it and that’s a long time to be throwing up and not keep anything in your stomach… poor dude.

Because he eats raw, I’m very observant when he is sick, it worries me a lot because he is the first cat I’ve fed raw (it’s going really well, but I think you can never let your guard down). Some information I was hoping to get from the crowd is the following:
- What makes a cat throw up his whole food, undigested?
- Sometimes the content, how far it’s been digested, the bile color and smell can tell you where the food was in the system when it was thrown up and give clues to what’s wrong…
- I wonder if I should discredit the fact that he was sick in the same way, the same time last year… coincidence or possible clue? Would allergies make him throw up so severely?
- What are the odds he is lacking a certain nutrient? Would his symptoms be more persistent if that were the case…?

Really hoping to figure this out… Any advice?

I would take him to the vet for a checkup. Since it was the same time last year, could it be that he might be shedding and taking too much fur in his system? It's heartbreaking when our kitties aren't well.
