Have Cat Questions? Ask a Cat Vet Online.
HI this is DRB and I would be happy to help you. When did she eat the cookie, how long ago? And has she thrown upthe cookie?
Well, this is tough because it is difficult to say if she is throwing up because of the cookie or something else. Typically with a cookie (chocolate ingestion) the theobromine in chocolate does not get broken down and the cats can develop seizures. If the cookie is the cause then it is good that she is throwing up hopefully this means she has cleared some of it out of her system.
But if she is vomiting due to another cause if she continues you will have to take he rin as she can get dehydrated and her electrolytes can get way out of whack and this could kill her. She also may have developed gastritis from dietary indiscretion but your boyfriend should check the house really well to make sure she did not eat a toy or other foreign body as that can be very serious.
Do you have additional questions or information?
Regardless of cause of vomiting if she vomits more than three times, you should have her seen because this could indicate a more serious cause......
also if she did eat the cookie and did not vomit that up then she could become very sick and die from that.....
Not trying to scare you, just give you correct information......nothing that can be done at home to treat chocolate ingestion other than inducing vomiting which she is already doing. She really should get checked out by a vet in person......can I answer additional questions?
Please let me know if I can be of further help in any way....Sincerely, ***** ***** will be online for another little bit....

I would not feed her tonight. Just keep fresh water out for her. Then try feeding her a small amount in the am. Hopefully she will be ok. If the vomiting continues you really need to take her in. Can I answer any other questions for you?
I check my computer each night so if you need further help I will know. I will be online about 15 minutes more tonight.
