My cat is throwing up and hiding. I can't catch her to take

Customer Question

My cat is throwing up and hiding. I can't catch her to take her to a vet. What should I do?
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. Hopefully it didn't make a mess. Did your cat eat anything unusual?
Customer: She might have swallowed some threads from a sisal scratching post. This stuff is used on all the scratching posts now.
JA: What is the cat's name and age?
Customer: Cinnamon and she's around 7 to 8.
JA: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Cinnamon?
Customer: She's a little feral and hides when she doesn't feel good.

Hello, JACustomer. I have been a Veterinary Nurse for over 15 years and would be happy to help you today. I'm reviewing your question right now.

Expert:  PitRottMommy replied 9 months ago.

1) How often is she vomiting?
2) Is she still eating? If so, canned or kibble?
3) Are you seeing anything in the vomit?
4) Is contacting a mobile vet to come to you an option?
