Cats can throw up foamy liquid for a variety of reasons, but the fact that its gone on for a week is an indication that Teddy needs to be seen by a vet. You should see a vet if your cat has chronic vomiting lasting more than a couple of days. Some of the reasons cats throw up foamy liquid include, but aren't limited to, a nauseous empty stomach; stress; CRF; eating toxic plants; blockage...there are many reasons, some serious, some not, but its important to find the cause & not just treat the symptoms.

Its not normal for a cat to be vomiting foamy liquid for a week. I wouldn't give the cat medication without knowing the cause. Your cat needs to be seen by your vet to get the correct medication and treatment.Occasional vomiting is to be expected but when it continues over a course of several days, there's a problem.

ches are you sure she is eating. it sounds like empty belly. especially if it is yellow would indicate bile which wehn we throw up on an empty belly it is bile that comes up. i would at least call the vet. i hope she is not loosing weight
