I took in a cat that someone left outside my hallway about 3 months ago. My question is, what can I do about his vomiting? I'd love to keep him but can't afford healthcare for the cat. Wouldn't want to turn him over to the pet shelters because of the overcrowdness. He doesn't seem to gain any weight. Wouldn't be able to say if he's depressed or what's the cause. I fell inlove with him and don't want hime to suffer any more. What can I do when all i can afford is catfood and litter?

HI there.If this cat is otherwise healthy and active and eating well, the vomiting is probably due to hairballs and this is easy to treat. Often, the hair is too far down the digestive tract to come ouit the mouth but they still feel nauseous. Purchase from the local pet store a product called Laxatone. Give your cat one dose now and another this evening. epeat this tomorrow and then give this once every 2-3 days. If this is the problem, this will fix it.good luck!!
