Did you mix the new food in with the old food to let her tummy adjust?

What dry food is she having as well?

yeah mixed new food in with old food, Sooty is fine

The dry is whiskas dry food

Its very strange, thought she was coughing a hairball up but there is quite a bit over the kitchen floor

Whiskas isn't a very good quality dry food to be honest, too many animals parts in it

Have you seen any furballs at all?. Jack didn't start coughing them up until he was a year old.

Make sure Flash is drinking or she'll become dehydrated, but if the vomiting has been happening for more than 24 hours i would take her to the vet because she might need something to settle her tummy, i know Sophie did when she had a tummy upset. She was giving a paste basically like the probiotic drinks we have.

Will keep an eye on her

If she's still vomiting i would still take her to the vet for a check up to be sure. If it is hairballs they'll more than likely give you a tube of Laxitone to help get rid of them, but i would look into changing their kibbles as well, and start getting them used to a brush to get the dead hair away

This is what my three eat now because the hairballs were terrible this year

I got worried about her this morning because there was a worm type string thing in her sick so i phoned the vet this morning who said to take her straight in, she accidently ate a bit of ham last night and since then we noticed the worms so in a way im glad she ate it

so poor little mite has got round worm possibly from when we brought her her home, so they have both had a tablet well that was damn fun trying to get sooty to take it lol

so hopefully she will be ok in a few days

Is this the first vet visit they've had since you got them?.

When i've brought mine home the first thing i do is to take them straight to the vet to get a thorough check up, and they usually worm them before their injections. Sophie came from a vets surgery and Jack from the Cats Protection so i knew they had already been wormed etc..., but i still took them to my own vet to get checked over.

Are they getting their shots as well?.
