Help!
I have a litter of 3 kittens, about 3 months old. They were born feral, but now are very gentle, 'tame', etc. They are all on a normal diet, and never are allowed to eat table scraps. But okne day when I walked in, there was kitty throw-up on the bed and carpet. I don't knokw which kitten it was or how it happened, since they all seemed pretty healthy. Any ideas?

If it was food that was puked up..my guess would be that one of the kittens ate too fast, too much or maybe even got too playful directly after eating..causing it to puke.
Just an idea.

I would have to agree with nern, sometimes kitties get so worked up or excited that they can vomit. They also do this if they have a hairball. My adult cats still do this from time to time, so no need to worry. However you should always (even though it sounds gross) check the content of the vomit. If kitty has vomitted up almost solid food - hardly digested, this is due to the issues mentioned above such as overeating, or too much excitement just after eating.
If the vomit consists of liquid, bile or sometimes blood - there could be another reason and a vet should be consulted if it happens frequently. Hope this helps! Best wishes.

Thanks for your help. I hope that you're right, because one kitty has been coughing a bit today (like I've seen a cat do before vomitting). Thanks again!
