View Full Version : how to stop the cat??
ok i need to know what i can do to stop our cat from chucking after she eats??
Its like she is belemic or something, she eats all her food drinks all the water she can then chucks :barf: and then i follow her...
i just dont understand why she does it...
This morning most of it was water... and i tell you now its not fun chucking on an empty tummy speciallt when your 36 weeks preg...
Please some one help what do i do...
Perhaps you should take her to see a vet. Doesn't sound normal :no:
our cats did this recently...we have found...sometimes its the food they are eating...sometimes they are distressed by household mood...cats are very sensitive to your emotions....recently we discovered our cats had fleas and this distressed them to the point they were throwing up, and lickiing their fur off and throwing up huge furballs. Once we put frontline on the back of their necks and got rid of the fleas, everything improved.
Look at the obvious things first...food, fleas, mood...etc...then if there is still a problem pay that umpteen $$$ to see the vet
Hubby has had his precious for at least 9 years now and he says that she has always been a chucker but i just dont know why he hasnt done anything about it sooner, its never been a huge thing but it seems its getting worse if you ask me and i cant just watch her eat chuck then want more and make a big noise cause she is hungry... will a cat eat the food it doesnt like or something it knows isnt good for it??
Does any one have any suggestions on food types?
also she has stoped peeing and pooing in her litter try and going in the landry sink, this isnt a huge thing as the pee can be washed away and hubby fixes her other stuff. But i am wondering as we have been living at the inlaws while our house is being renovated and they have a cat that doesnt get on with ours could that be the problem...
Sounds to me like the cat may have some sort of anxiety disorder, I think the vet can give you something that may help!
But i am wondering as we have been living at the inlaws while our house is being renovated and they have a cat that doesnt get on with ours could that be the problem...
Yep...thats enough stress to cause a problem...our cats are inside cats and a year ago...an outside cat used to hover around our back door (we think it wanted their food) they used to go wild at the door...and showed other distress signs...
so yes your recent change would be enough to cause these symptoms.
Mostly cats don't eat food they don't like...its really trial and error with food... we feed our cats whiskers but they don't eat every type...and we feed them Purina one special care biscuits (green packet)
I would say it is stress related, not much can be done unless you remove the cause of the stress hopefully overtime they will adjust to the different environmant, can sometimes be due to fur balls
regards peeing in the sink i am about to post my own help question out there, but i have a little experience in this issue.
The cat hovering will most certainly be causing this behaviour. Thank you lucky stars she is doing it in a sink!!! she will be marking her teritory in a desparate attempt to show the other pus who's boss and who's teritory its on. i have spoken to 2 cat behaviourists and a vet because mine has peed now in the house for the last FOUR MONTHS!!!!!! she pees on cloths piles around the house. NICE.
CLOMICALM is the pill she is on and it makes her pee in the litter again when she has had a dose as apparently she can think clearly again on it.
If your cat is a female and the other cat is a male not fixed that is probably whats going on there.
I hope you find your solution.:D
My cat was also a chucker and I spoke to 3 different vets about it and there was no real answer. When she was 6, she became quite ill and it turned out her pancreas had failed. I then found out she was allergic to fish (which is not in a cat's natural diet) and what did I used to feed her, fish. Her allergy caused her to chuck and then eventually the strain caused her pancreas/bowels to fail. This is apparently quite common. So, maybe your cat is eating fish too?
I also have a cat on clomicalm but it doesn't help him find the litter tray any better :rolleyes: .
I have also had this problem in the past with my cats when i took them to the vet the vet told me that they had just eaten something bad, gave them a injection and then they were fine. They also said that because they had eaten something bad... the vet said even fly's can do it... there could of been some inflamation in there stomach's
but to be on the safe side I would get it checked out
