I think the main thing is just get them to the vet, that's the best thing we can do.

TERRIFIC, Cher!! Another winner!!
Please do NOT attempt to palpate a cat's bladder if you suspect an obstruction! If that bladder is distended and tense, you might very well cause it to rupture. That is far beyond an emergency!!
Anti-emetics. Always remember that there's a chance the toxin may have burned going down ~ it will burn coming back up! The stomach is much more resilient that the delicate trachea and esophagus.
