If you've rulled out all the possibilities of something being wrong such as illness, I would try a different type of food. Have you tried switching from dry food to moist? We had this problem with our oldest cat Bo (2 yrs), and since we switched him to Purina canned food he's been just fine, and he seems to enjoy it much more than the dry. Cats can be just as picky as people sometimes lol. Good luck!

I feed my dog with allergies California Natural...it is by natruapet I believe and they have cat products as well. The vomiting may be caused by something else. has it started recently? does he have an obstruction? an ulcer? is your cat an outdoor cat who may be getting into chemicals (even grass with pesticides? fertilizers?). If all else fails try feeding your cat pure fish for a few days, if that helps slowly add in rice or a wheat, carrots, eggs this may help you find out what exactly makes your cat sick. I know for my dog even treats/food that have preservatives and chemicals make him sick. Goodl uck

Hi,
I wonder if your cat may be swallowing alot of hair while grooming. It (the hair) will stay in her stomach, so when she eats, there is not enough room for the food, and the food comes back out. I had this problem with my calico, Duchess, so I gave her Laxatone about every other day. If you've never used it, Laxatone is a malt flavored hairball remedy gel that will help the hair pass through the digestive tract. Most cats like the taste so it is easy to administer. You can also put a blob of the laxatone on the top of her paw and she will lick it off. Also, I currently have a long-haired cat who is on a strict raw food diet and she never, ever has problems with hairballs or throwing up. I wish both of you the best of luck!
