Hi there!Tomato juice is not harmful to cats but can cause intestinal upset just because it's different from what she normally eats, not for any toxic reason... I think that the vomiting/diarrhea should not be prolonged (in other words, it should not be continuing through the night) and there will not be any lasting effects. If Callie continues to feel unwell, have vomiting/diarrhea or develop other symptoms, it would not be because of the tomato, but rather something else, and I would take her to your vet to be evaluated. As for licking the tomato juice, she will be fine!
