My cat is vomiting up large amounts of partially digested food.

Customer Question

My cat is vomiting up large amounts of partially digested food.
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. Hopefully it didn't make a mess. Did your cat eat anything unusual?
Customer: No, but we did just go through some stressful days. On Tuesday night/Wednesday morning our apartment building caught fire (nobody was injured but kitty was in crate for a majority of 5 hours) then we stayed at my parents and they have 2 cats but the cats were separated, then we moved into a new place.
JA: OK. The Veterinarian will know what to do. What is the cat's name?
Customer: It just started within the last 24 hours. His name is***** is a siamese mix and he's about a year and a half old. Never had problems with hairballs or vomiting in the 8 months I've had him.
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Veterinarian about your situation and then connect you two.
