What is he throwing up? Is it food, or clear fluid, hair? Often cats will throw up hairballs if they're not getting enough fiber and liquid in their diet. It's not a good idea to feed strictly a dry food diet, esp. with a cat that tends to throw up. If it is hairballs, you can feed a dry food that is made to help prevent hairballs. There are also several haiball treatments you can use-they sort of look like toothpaste tube- and they come in flavors like tuna, salmon, malt. Your cat may or may not lick it off your finger. If not, you just have to open his mouth and wipe it on the roof of his mouth, then shut his mouth to assure he swallowed it. If it's not hairballs, a trip to the vet is necessary. Blood work doesn't tell everything that is going on with our 4 legged kids. He could have reflux, or other digestive problems. Good luck.

Unfortunately, vets are becoming more & more like doctors.  If they can't pick a dianosis off of a test result sheet, they don't have a clue.  That's why they always want to run a myriad of expensive tests before venturing a guess as to the animal's problem. 

Ragdollmom is right in suspecting hairballs, but housecats are notorious for stomach problems.  You may be able to lessen the instances, but you might as well prepare for more vomiting, especially as the cat matures.

I'd agree with you, but then we'd both be wrong.

Hairballs was my first impression.

Gratitude as a discipline involves a conscious choice.....* Victims of circumstance owe it to fate. Victims of choice owe it to themselves.*One of the widest gaps in human experience is the gap between what we say we want to be and our willingness to discipline ourselves to get there.

Hey, I think you should immediately take your cat to the vet, it could get dehydrated from vomiting, and the vet should probably take a look at it... I hope your kitty feels better soon...
