Customer Question
My cat is gaining...

My cat is gaining weight, just lying around, and has been vomiting white foam. Sometime it is clear with yellowish tint.

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 important you think the Veterinarian should know about your cat?

He is a large long haired part coon cat. If that helps and he is an indoor cat.
