Hello, I am sorry to hear you are worried about Bruno. My name is Rebecca. I am a veterinarian and will do my best to help. I see Bruno is hand raised. Has he had any vaccinations yet? Is he around any other cats or kittens at all? Vomiting can be from eating something that upset his stomach, or from eating something that is causing an intestinal blockage, or from an infection (virus, bacteria, parasites). If it is just a "24 hour bug" or a reaction to something he ate, he might be better on his own soon. If he continues to not eat, and to vomit, he should be examined for intestinal blockage or for one of the more serious kitten viruses such as feline distemper ("panleukopenia"). If you check his gums, are they pink in color, or pale? Can he take in and hold down any liquids? If he can, try giving him broth or tuna juice or even just water to keep him from becoming dehydrated. Let me know what other questions you have.

He stole abit of my egg this morning and no he hasnt had his injections yet. Hes around another kitten thats also been hand raised but shes perfectly fine. Hes been fine all day since about an hour ago.

Good that the other kitten is not sick. Are his gums pink? Any chance he could have swallowed a toy, some string, yarn, etc.?
Customer: replied 6 months ago.
His gums are pink and hes just been sick again and is now playing with his sister. Definately not swallowes a toy or anything. I do have other cats. He is a pig with his food.
Expert:  Rebecca replied 6 months ago.
Pink is good; he is not in immediate danger if his gums are normal color. Will he take liquids? Try to keep him hydrated with broth or water.
