I have two make cats (4yrs and 2yrs) and one new female

Customer Question

I have two make cats (4yrs and 2yrs) and one new female kitten (12 weeks), who we have had in the house for 5 days now.
Since her arrival, my oldest cat has vomited his food each night and now one of the three cats (I'm not sure who) has diarrhea.
They are all getting along well and eating fine, any idea what could be causing this sickness?

Good morning, Danica. Thanks for your question. Stress often plays a role when introducing cats and we can see some vomiting, diarrhea and even avoiding box usage.

Good morning again, Danica. For some reason, it looks like part of my transmission did not go through although I had typed out some questions for you. Do you still need help?

Sorry about that, I normally catch any mistakes within a few minutes but this one clearly slipped past me yesterday. If you still need help, can you answer some additional questions?

1) Any diet changes in the house?
2) Any new treats?
3) This new kitten, where did she come from? Do you have any paperwork on her regarding her vetting? Was a fecal performed?
