I am moving this to the Health forum for you.

Please take you cat to the vet NOW!

Good Luck and let us know how you make out.

Yes, please take him or her to the vet! I know in humans throwing up anything that looks like diarrhea or "coffee grounds" can be a sign of intestinal blockage. I don't know if that is the same for cats, but either way a vet will know what to do!

I am currently in your same position. RJ, he's 8 months old, is suffering from the same dilemma. You HAVE to take him to the vet asap. RJ was given anti-vomiting medication, and is now on an enzyme to help break down his food. It's unknown at this point if it's a digestive problem, or possible kidney issues, but we are doing what we can one day at a time. The vomiting is going to cause dehydration very quickly, and weight will drop. A vet visit is an order.
Good luck! And keep us posted. What you find out may help me and vice versa.

Another possiblility is that your cat has a GI bleed. Either way, this requires immediate Veterinary attention. This is far too long for your kitty to have gone without professional care. Please get to the ER Vet right now! Once all is well, please do let us know who everything went.

Hopefully it's food you are seeing, coffee grounds emesis is old blood, as Stephanie said, a GI bleed is another possibility here. Your cat needs a vet evaluation.

As soon as I see something strange my cats are at the vets office. I don't want you to think she don't get care. That's my baby. The vet sent us home. What should I do now?

You didn't tell us that...how about some more details? Your vet saw the cat after this began? What was their diagnosis? Did they send you home with any meds or instructions as to when calling them again would be indicated?

Does it look basically like partly digested food? Because one of my other cats does that occasionally when he eats too fast?

I took her to our family vet on Friday because someone noticed her puking this stuff on Thursday night/ Friday morning. This was after I had gone to bed. I found out Friday morning and took her in right away. The vet looked at her and did a physical evaluation, felt her tummy and did a poop swab, internally to look at it closer under a microscope. She said that there was a little bacteria but that it was normal to be found in feces. Otherwise, Jaz looked really healthy. She has gained weight, not lost and she seems ok. She's a little more a loner but that could have to do with jealousy with the new cat. I'm just at my witsend. Like I said she is my baby and I'm freakin!!! The vet said to watch her over the weekend but Monday I'm still takin her back. We weren't given meds for her just told to watch her.

There is nothin in it but liquid. It almost looks like dark brown baby food. Or diarhea.

Is your cat still pooping? Does it smell like anything? As said above it could be a sign of intestinal blockage (or something else). Either way, I think you should go back to vet or maybe even better, get a second opinion.

Please let us know what the vet said. I do hope you took her in.

i would have your vet do some more tests than a fecal.

Heather, I'm sorry you are still going through this. I hope you do go and find a second opinion. I also hope you find a little bit of comfort in the fact I am going through the same thing. Just take it one day at a time sweetie.

Poor baby. This must be so upsetting as you strive to get her the help she needs. Please do let us know how she's feeling today.

Does she hold any food down at all.
