post #1 of 6

Marishka readily ate her first meal of Fromm foods Beef wet food this evening (about 3.5-4 ounces). I went into my bedroom about an hour ago, and she had vomited all of it up (onto my new and clean bedding), looking just about how it looked when she ate it. She hasn't acted sick all evening, as she's been with me most of it, and is acting fine now, and doesn't seem upset when I press around on her tummy. In the year I've had her I've cleaned up cat vomit maybe 3 times including this time.
So, ironically I asked earlier this evening about giving her tomato paste onto other food as a treat, as she seemed to like it on the food, and in small amounts was the answer and to watch for onions and garlic. Ok.
So, I look up tomatos and cats about 5 minutes ago, and come across this website> Which foods are toxic to cats and dogs? and read this:
Tomatoes and tomato plants: Tomatoes of all kinds are toxic to cats, as are parts of the tomato plant. Ingesting as little as a cherry tomato can cause severe gastrointestinal upset.
A) If so, then why would it be in such a highly praised and probably popular food?
B)Should I be concerned?

Was it a fluke, and the food just didn't sit well on her stomach, or should I be more worried? Maybe I'm being paranoid, but is there any validity to it? It just doesn't make sense to me, and I feel like I am missing an important piece of information.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Be concerned but in more a watchful way....

has she ever had beef with tomato before in another brand??? If no her tummy may not have done well ...My vet said beef often is hard for them at first... not my experience but

Tomato is like garlic many say yes many say no.... I feed it in small amount s and so far nothing ( ohhh about 20 yrs of small amounts ).. but many cant handle it

Thanks Sharky- don't know what I'd do without you!

I can't recall any other food having tomato in it- she's had some beef flavors of Fancy Feast. I'll admit I was excited she would eat it because FF being the only thing she would eat. And I don't want to touch the stuff anymore because Nestle-Purina contracts to Menu foods and I just morally can't support that (but we all know that story...)

Should I not try to risk it again, or let her eat a little bit again maybe tomorrow evening hoping her tummy can adjust? I generally like the food and esp. the company, but the store only had the beef in stock, so I just bought two cans hoping they would get the chicken soon (esp. at $1.60 a can!).

Do you know, does the chicken or tuna have tomato?

Thanks again : )

Thanks again : )

It's got me wondering why they would all have the tomato...hopefully tomorrow will prove to be better.
Now for my bedclothes to finish drying so I can get to sleep!

I prefer to avoid foods with tomatoes--the toxic component is usually found in the green parts of the plants (stems, leaves, etc) and unripe fruit, but I don't really trust any of the pet food makers to not slip that in whether on purpose or not. That said, I had been feeding Odo canned EVO (until recently when he decided not to eat it anymore) which has tomato flakes. I didn't notice any problems that I could attribute to that, and I had forgotten completely that it contained tomato until now. The toxic component, solanine, is also found in potatoes and peppers (particularly in the stems, leaves, and unripe fruits).
