Hello, my name is***** and I am happy to help you and your kitten. I need to ask a few questions to better assess the situation.

1. How long have we been vomiting?

2. Any diarrhea?

3. Have we been to the vet yet? Any deworming?

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
She is vomiting since 10 AM (10 hours ago). She was spitting foamy saliva. 4 hours ago she started vomiting something yellow (once every hour/2 hours)

The biggest worry in a kitten that small is low blood sugar and dehydration. If she cannot keep any food or water down, I'd recommend a visit to a nearby ER clinic.

In the short term, please lift her lip and make sure her gums are pink. If she seems extremely lethargic, please put karo syrup or honey along her gumline.

There are many causes of vomiting in a young kitten, most of them will require a visit with your vet tomorrow (as she will need some medication to deworm her and calm her stomach down). These little babies are really fragile!

If I have answered your questions, please kindly rate me (this is how I cam compensated for my time). If not, please reply back and I am happy to answer additional questions. Thank you.
