I am sorry to hear about what Sam ate. I am a veterinarian and will do my best to help.
Tomcat makes more than one kind of mouse poison. Do you happen to have the box or label, to see what the active ingredient is?
Good thinking to use hydrogen peroxide. If you saw the poison in the vomit, he will probably be OK.
If we know that this is one of the anticoagulant rat poisons, I might consider putting him on the antidote vitamin K 1 for a few weeks. If it is the neurologic type of poison there is no antidote, so it is good you got him to vomit
Let me know if you have the label or box.

The nasty, no antidote kind contains bromethalin.
Let me know if you know what is was.
