My cat is about 3 months old. We give him some kitten milk…

Customer Question
My cat is about...

My cat is about 3 months old. We give him some kitten milk every now and then. We just brought home a kitten last night and we let them both have kitten milk. My older cat threw up. He drank a little more milk (which I grabbed up when I saw what he was doing) then vomited again. It was freshly made so it had not spoiled. He is acting fine and still playing with the new kitten. Is this anything to be worried about?

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'm sorry to hear that. Hopefully it didn't make a mess. Did your kitten eat anything unusual?

Haha. Just a small one. The kids cleaned it up. He didn't eat anything all that I am aware of. The kids did have frosties from Wendy's and Leo LOVES those. He did get a couple of licks on an empty cup but that has happened before with no side effects.

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about your kitten?

No. He seems perfectly happy and playful still.

Hello. Thanks for writing in. My name is***** and I would be happy to help you. I AM NOT SET UP TO MAKE PHONE CALLS, BUT I WOULD BE HAPPY TO ANSWER ANY QUESTIONS YOU HAVE ONLINE. THE WEBSITE SENDS THE REQUESTS; NOT MYSELF. If he is acting fine and no longer vomiting, it should be okay to just monitor him now for any further problems. I would try to avoid giving the milk to him, at least for now. Interestingly enough, many cats can become lactose intolerant sometime after 2 months of age, so that could be the case with him now. Either way, if he continues to vomit, seems lethargic, seems painful, has bloody stool, has diarrhea for more than 2 days or is not eating; I would have your vet check him out. Please let me know if you have any other questions or concerns. Hope this helps.
