I am sorry that you have been waiting for a response. I recently just logged onto the site and noted that your question hasn't yet been answered. I am a licensed veterinarian with over 25 years’ experience and would be happy work with you if you are still needing assistance.

Hopefully by now, Casey is better and/or you have had him evaluated by a veterinarian. If there is still anything I can help with please let me know.

He stopped throwing up, but I am afraid he might be constipated. I left for work and restricted his food to see if that helps. If he still has not used his litter box by the time I get home I will take him to the vet. I think the pads under his foot are 'horned paws' and I would like a vet to see them in real life.Thank you!

That sounds like a good plan. Nothing can replace the benefit of a thorough physical exam. Constipated cats can be very uncomfortable. Good luck with him and please keep me posted if anything else comes up in which I could be of assistance.
