Customer Question

I have an indoor cat about 3 years old. He threw up solid once and liquid twice last night. Hasn't puked for 24 hours, but still acts kinda distant. He keeps licking his lips and licking himself. Won't eat and won't drink... gets up walks around doesn't run seems okay but refuses to eat, ears look fine, gums look fine, eyes work fine

Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you with your wee one today. I do apologize that your question was not answered before. Different experts come online at various times; I just came online, read about your wee one’s situation, and wanted to help.
Is he drinking at all now? Keeping water down?
Are his gums pink or white/pale?
If you press on his belly, does he have any tensing, soreness, discomfort, or tenderness?
Could he have eaten anything she should not have (ie bones, plants, people medication, toxins, etc)?
