Keep us posted!

My kitty is 18 & has been vomiting pink-ish on & off for 2 weeks, I'm assuming it might be some blood in there. Like you, I'm watching her closely & giving her extra attention as I'm thinking it might be near the end. She's otherwise happy & showing no signs of pain or distress. She's always been a puker, but not pink-ish. She is an outdoor cat, but we try to coax her inside in the evening to warm up, and she's been hiding in strange places the last week as well, which I read can also be a sign that something is off.

Hopefully everything turns out ok for you!

Was wondering also how Mushu was doing? Maybe his owner will be back on in the morning to let us know. Hope he is okay.

Cats can be as bad as kids about "putting" things in their mouths. My DD's cat was drooling and breathing with her mouth open so I took her to the vet. Turns out she tried to eat a small Lego piece and it slipped perfectly over one of her back teeth.

She is also a routine puker but when she is worse than normal we have a prescription for Carafate to calm her tummy.

Turns out he had been gnawing on pieces of an artificial, fern-like plant that he discovered up on a shelf one day. The vet showed us Henry's x-rays and we could see several thin strands in his tummy, which turned out to be fairly long pieces of the plant. The vet performed surgery to remove the plant pieces. A couple of days rest and +/- $2,000.00 later, he was fine.

After that episode, every time we took Henry to the vet for an appointment, the staff called him "Fern" instead of Henry.

OP- Sending good thoughts for your kitty. Hope he is doing better.

FYI. Tufts Animal Hospital (EMERGENCY SERVICES) in Grafton, MA is open 24 hours a day / 7 days a week / 365 days of the year! (Cummings School of Veterinary Medicine at Tufts University). Foster Hospital for small animals.
http://vet.tufts.edu/fhsa/

Please don't have an animal suffer because your vet is not open.

I have used Tufts, and they are absolutely wonderful. It is expensive, but it was so worth it to us. If it is a wild animal hospital, they will provide services for free.

Add me to the $2,000+ cat club. Have done it with several animals. We never hesitate.
Just went thru seizures, MRI & spinal tap on a 3 yr old kitty. Treated & all better now.
We had 2 cats with kidney disease that we've spent lots on for treatment.

I hope you've taken your kitty to the vet. My 4yo male coon cat died on christmas eve - and I wasn't there for him. I'm still heartbroken by it. We went to DH's parents house for christmas, and left my cat home with my mom. I guess he threw up twice, and was lethargic, and my brother found him dead curled up under the tree. Had I been there, I would have noticed his peculiar behavior and taken him to the vet immediately. He could have had a uti or an obstruction and both require immediate attention. I miss my big guy so very much.

Kitty!
Everyday I wake up and think about Disneyland
I think it is sheer luck, endurance and compromise

PLEASE take your cat to the vet. I had a cat that had the same vomiting issues all his life. As his kidney disease progressed so did the vomiting of blood. Kidney disease causes excess stomach acid which results in mouth, throat or gastro ulcers. There is medication for that. It is called sucralfate (Sulcrate, carafate) It coats the lining of the stomach and acts as a bandaid to heal raw spots. Your poor cat probably feels miserable if she is vomiting bloody mucus. It will get worse if not treated. You don't want to see your cat bleed to death.

Also if your cat isn't eating because she feels sick from vomiting, it will make her tummy worse. Frequent small meals are good for an overly acidic tummy. It will give the acid something to work on instead of the stomach lining.

Please at least call your vet. I know taking an older kitty into the vet can be hard on them, but there is medication that can help with this. Poor kitty.

Still waiting to hear from OP. I would have taken our cats to the emergency hospital if I thought it was an emergency.

Like Pepto Bismol for cats!

We do take her regularly for her check ups & shots, and they did have her on something years & years ago for the vomiting but could never find a thing wrong. They actually attributed her frequent vomiting back then to the fact that when DSs were small they'd hover over her while she ate, so she's gobble it up too fast. Not sure if that's true or not but she did stop the frequent vomitiing once the kids stopped bugging her while she ate!

She's eating, drinking & going to the bathroom just fine. She has her check up in 2 weeks, where I will be sure to tell them. They did some kidney testing a few years back & found nothing, maybe its time to re-do that.

Did we ever hear back from the OP?

Who does that? I mean really. These kinds of threads burn my biscuits, and I know better than to open them (so save it with the don't open these kinds of threads lectures).

Help me understand how you just let your pet sit in a litter box, crying out in pain all night long, and think to yourself "oh, kitty may be dying, so I'm just going to let kitty die a slow and painful death"? Or let's their cat puke up vomit with blood for two weeks, and not at the very least call their vet?

It just boggles my mind. And I'm sure I will get torched for this, but whatever. After working as a Vet Tech in my earlier days, it's just frustrating to me to read things like this.

God, could you be any ruder and insensitive?? For all we know, Terry will be coming back with very sad news tonite, and she has to come and read this?
Terry, I'm so sorry you're going thru this, as fellow pet lovers, we all can understand. I hope you come back with good news for us.
