I am sorry to hear Buddy is vomiting. My cat is also Buddy, also from a shelter, also 5!

There are so many things that cause cats to vomit, and many are not serious. Is he drinking water? If you lift his lip to look at his gums, are they pink or pale?

Cat Veterinarian: Rebecca, Cat Veterinarian replied 7 months ago

If his gums seem pink and he can drink and hold down water, he is not in immediate danger.

You can try giving him famotidine, Pepcid AC, 2.5 mg twice daily for vomiting.

If he can't hold any liquids down or if his gums seem pale, this might be something more serious.
