My Cat Misty is sick too often
4 years ago

Hi, we live in New Zealand and Misty our beautiful girl adopted us a few years ago when she walked into our bedroom. She never left. However, she is rather over weight but is often sick. The amount she brings up doesn't compare to what we give her to eat. Perhaps she goes elsewhere to eat and is just being greedy. The vet could not find anything wrong with her. Can anyone help or advise? Many thanks. Susie

Reduce her food intake and make her exercise. That way she will loose the weight.

Susie sorry to hear your Misty gets sick frequently.  I don't think it would be her weight causing the problem.  Maybe the food and/or how fast she eats.  Does she have food available 24/7?  Maybe frequent feedings of smaller amounts?  Or a different food.  Does she eat dry or canned or a combination?  I've had cats that did this, but they had IBS.  In fact I had one named 'Susie' who did this.  She lived to be 17 even after having a stroke when she was around 11.  Like all cats she was very special.

Experiment with different food. Also check her litter and compare it with her sickness.

Susie,

If she goes elsewhere to eat this must mean she is out roaming. Beware of people that give bad food to cats, which would make her sick, or even poison.....

 

Did the vet check her for diabetes? If she is over weight, it could be from that.

Yes Susie, beware of other people putting poison out that cats get into. She may be eating something somewhere else. If not then maybe try a different food at home, she could have an allergy to something in the food you give her. Does the vomit have hair in it?

Hi Susie...hope Misty is feeling better...great advice here from all the cat lovers. Is she a long-haired cat? If so they are much more prone to hairballs and vomiting because of all the ingested fur. In any event I agree with the advice to keep her in, and see if that makes a difference. Unfortunately mean people who feed posion to cats exist..it is up to us to protect them
