My cat (usually 11...

My cat (usually 11 pounds) was lost in my apartment building for three days and didn't eat or drink. Found her yesterday afternoon. Regular diet is Royal Canin Safety Support Weight Management, prescribed by her vet. She threw up everything yesterday, including water. Keeping water down this am. Just gave her 1/8 cup of food, waiting to see if that works. Advice? Thanks, ***** ***** Easter! ***** *****(###) ###-####

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. Hopefully it didn't make a mess. Did your cat eat anything unusual?

No. Nothing at all for three days. Lost in the workings of the building.

Veterinarian's Assistant: OK. The Expert will know what to do. What is the cat's name?

Kelly. Thanks! *****: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Kelly?

No. Before she did this, she was completely healthy. Thanks.

I am sorry to hear about Kelly being lost and now being sick. You must be relieved to have her back, but now worried about this vomiting.

It is a good sign she is keeping water down, and that she ate the 1/8 th cup of food.

If you lift her lip and check her gums, are they pink in color?
