Customer Question
Hi there. I woke...

Hi there. I woke up and my cat had threw up about 6 times ( most with food ) then he’s been throwing up ever since - it’s becoming less and less as time goes by. But it’s now just bile or stomach acid? We are moving and I noticed he tore up the plastic bubble wrap we have. So I am assuming he ate some. He keeps like licking or smacking his tongue in his mouth seeming like it may be stuck. I gave him a little bit of olive oil - honestly just a lick because he wouldn’t take more. I’m really really worried, he hasn’t thrown up in about 30 mins and hes now trying to sleep

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. 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 your cat?

He won’t let me look in his mouth. And no I don’t think so! He’s just uncomfortable :(

Welcome to JustAnswer.com! My name is***** and I have been a licensed veterinarian for 10 years. I would be happy to answer your question. I'm really worried that the bubble wrap is causing an obstructed in his GI tract. I would get him to the vet right away for an abdominal x-ray to make sure he does not need surgery to remove it.

OKay. He is now sleeping so I’m going to let him sleep a little longer and then get him to the vet. Thank you.
Cat Veterinarian: Dr. Rachel, Cat Veterinarian replied 4 months ago

You're welcome. Hopefully he does not have an obstruction. Good luck with him. If I have been helpful, I would greatly appreciate your 5-star rating. Thank you and have a great day!
