My kitty has just started spitting up small amounts of frothy spit, not a fur ball at all. Does anyone know why this may be? He's a 3yr old persian, he is on a special diet...Hill's prescrition cd/s for the prevention of urine crystals. I also just brought a new kitten home, also a persian from the same breeder, very respectable, beautiful well taken care of kitten, up to date on all vacs, so I figure it's unlikely he could have caught anything fom this new addition. PLEASE any insight would be greatly appreciated, I'm so worried.

Hello. If it's not a fur ball, then it could be he licked something that was not meant to be ingested (i.e. flea drops, carpet flea powder, household cleaning produts and so on). Or he may be ill for various reasons. You can either take him to vet vet right away or see if he stops throwing up fairly soon. If he keeps doing this all day, a trip to the vet would be best, as this could be serious. Is he eating and drinking?

He's eating but I haven't necessarily seen him drinking?? Would there be a reason he wouldn't be drinking? Oh and Chessmind your cat is so pretty.

The reason to be checking on if he's drinking is becuase cats can become dehydrated quickly when they're vomiting or drooling or spitting.

I'd check your houseplants to make sure he isn't chewing on anything that you may have expected him to ignore.

Thank you, Cacey. His name is Handsome. He's a really cool cat. Footsie had some great advice. Certain house plants can also be poisonous to animals. Here is a list of all the poisonous plants (both indoor and outdoor plants). You have to scroll down a little bit to get to the list. http://www.cfainc.org/articles/plants.html
