    Millie was sick again last night. Quite a lot (the equivalent of just over half a pouch to 3/4 of a pouch of wet food). I don't know if it's overeating, the heat or what but she was sick early hours of Sunday morning and again last night. She seems fine and perky and she's fully wormed/ flead/ vaccinated etc but I know it's not "normal". I called the vet and the receptionist said I should get her checked over being that she's still so little (12 weeks).

    She has a pouch and a half a day plus she grazes on dry kibbles. The box says that they should eat up to 2-3 pouches per day so I don't think she's eating too much and then regurgitating it straight away but I don't know. In any case, she hardly eats after about 9pm/10pm when we all go up to bed so being sick at 3am can't be right can it?

    (Oh yes, I stood in catsick at 3.30am this morning - in the hallway, lounge and kitchen - nice).

    Since I've had her I'd say on average she's sick once a week. She's been to the vets for her worming and fleaing and passed with flying colours. She's gaining weight and seems happy and healthy. I mentioned the vomming before and they said to monitor it but I think I should go and ask again - what do you think?

    Also, do you think I am over-feeding her? Purely Kitten boxes say that they should have 2-3 pouches per day. Millie is having one and a half (max) but she does pick and dry James Welbeloved kibbles as I feed her 3/4 times a day with an automatic feeder which has an ice pack in the bottom to keep the food fresh.

    Help! :( Just worried about my little poppet.

    Does she eat grass? or is she licking her fur and this making her sick? just 2 things that have made my cats sick in the past,
    Hope whatever is causing it is sorted soon.

    She does lick her fur, but there's no fur in the vom. She's not been out yet so no grass.

    I just hope she's not eaten something she shouldn't and gotten it stuck! :eek:hmy:

    If you are that worried, then take her to the vets.

    There are so many reasons why cats vomit, and i would say the amount and frequency she is being sick, isnt normal, and
    requires investigation.

    She is very young, and prolonged vomiting can cause further problems.
