Hi Fran,

I am sorry Teia is not feeling well.

Please tell me more about him:

Is the ticking sound similar to a hiccup?

What did he eat last before his vomiting and diarrhea?

Does he have any known health issues or take any medication?

Is he an indoor kitty?

After your reply please give me a few minutes to type detailed answer of if you prefer we can speak on the phone.
