He is about 15 weeks old and he just started vomiting yesterday.

First I woke up noticing the bed cover was wet and realized it was vomit (seems like it was wet food and some pet grass). And I saw a trail of vomit to the washroom, maybe 3 to 4 of them. But these ones had no coulour with some bubbles. He also started getting hives. I read that it might have been detoxing from the grass but when I came back from work, I saw his vomit again on the floor right near the entraance. This one didn’t have coulour either but it seemed like there might have been a little bit of blood? He had no hives at this point.

He threw up this morning again in my room. This one looked a little bit cloudy with tiny bit of food but all liquid. And just a couple minutes later he was trying to throw up on the carpet so I put a towel down, so he could threw up there instead directly onto the carpet, but then he stopped. I also noticed he started getting hives.

Please help me and any advice will be appreciated.

Thank you so much and have a great day everyone.

@Natsu Hi Natsu amd welcome to the lair family
We can't diagnose but can chime in with suggestions .

With the vomiting amd hives starting , I would definitely call your vet and make an Appointment.
It's better to get a diagnosis , treatment and medications if necessary on board in his system sooner than later .
Be sure to kitty proof for life - they are prone to eating things they should not which can cause vomitting .
I make sure to have no love plants inside too bcz some can be toxic -
Do you think he ate anything he should not have ?

With vomitting , you want to make sure he doesn't get dehydrated which can be serious for kitties -
Definitely recommend a visit to the vet for you boy

What's his name ?
positive vibes sent for your baby

Please please keep us updated

@Natsu welcome to sphynxlair. Since your boy keeps vomiting I would make an appointment with the vet.
Does your boy still eat and drink? Is his poop solid?
Do you know how to check if he's getting dehydrated?

Sending healing vibes to your boy

@Natsu , were you able to contact your vet and also let breeder know ?
How long have you had him?
Some contracts require a wellness check within so many days of receiving kitty

How is he this afternoon?
Hopefully you were able to talk with your vet office

Thank you so much for the response. He’s finally doing better now. I took your guys advice and made sure to get him water as much as possible.

He was having diarrhea during those times but his poop became solid now!

Thank you!

Hello and welcome, @Natsu. Your boy is stunning, by the way. It sounds like he might have gotten into something he shouldn't have such as the grass.

My boy can't eat cat grass or else he vomits. He has vomits from licking certain plastic bags (he has a sensitive tummy). My girl can eat anything (and has) without much effect. I think cat boys are just sensitive like human boys! LOL
