My parents cat is acting lethargic and has been throwing up

Customer Question

hi - my parents cat is acting lethargic and has been throwing up since yesterday...first it was yellow and now its mostly clear...he was meowing funny yesterday a.m. and has been anti social the last couple of days
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. This sounds like it might be serious. I'll let the Veterinarian know what's going on ASAP. Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about the cat?
Customer: yeah i think they tried to feed him this a.m. and he wasnt hungry....

Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you today.

Can you confirm he is able to pass urine?

If you press on his belly, any tensing, tenderness, discomfort, or pain?

Can he keep any water down?

Are his gums pink or white/pale? Moist or sticky?

Could he have eaten anything harmful (ie bones, toys, plants, chemicals, human meds, etc)?
