why is my cat being sick?

i have a 2 yr old house cat and over the past 2 weeks he keeps vominting and i have no idea why. He still seems like his usual self and his behaviour hasnt changed, but everytime i wake up i find a big pile of sick waiting for me.i know its not furballs because that sick is different. last month i had some malteasers and he kept trying to eat them so i gave him some, now i'm worried that ive made him diabetic, could this be the cause? please help as i'm very worried and cannot afford to take him to the vets.

If you cannot afford a vet you shouldn't have a cat, but apart from that I'm sure the vet would let you pay in installments or if you are on benefits the PDSA will help. You can't just let the cat suffer that is downright cruel.
You need to get him to a Vet ASAP. It is not normal for a cat to vomit every day for 2 weeks. Giving him maltesers would not make him diabetoc but nor would they make him sick 2 weeks later.

If you can't afford a vet then you should either get some pet insurance or get rid of your cat. The poor thing could be suffering or have somethinhg seriously wrong with it.
please get him to the vet asap, the poor pussy : (
Chocolate is highly toxic to both cats and dogs.......It is not normal for a any animal to regularly bring up their food, and your cat needs to see a vet. if you cannot afford the fees, speak to your local Cats Protection Leage to see if they will help. If are on a low income you may quality for free treatment from the PDSA or Blue Cross.
Hang on, before you all frighten this person. If your cat otherwise seems healthy, bright eyes, shiny coat, no discharge from eyes or nose or rear end, he should be ok, cats often vomit at will, either through something inedible or just because. That is why they nibble on grass. I have a cat who throws up when he feels like it, its just bad luck, as long as he is eating and drinking fine, dont worry, check he is up to date with his worming programme. Some cats are fussy devils and will throw up at the drop of a hat even when they have just eaten their meal! It could be he is a fast eater and gorges himself too quickly. Try feeding him little and often. RQ x
my dogs bring up phlem occasionally, usually if they are hungry.......but not a pile of sick.......everyday?
have you wormed poor puss that may be the problem.
No feedback again!!!
I have the same problem with my cat, he is 10years old now but in really good health apart from the being sick all over my new cream carpets. :(
We have tried changing his food giving him a mixture of hairball biscuits mixed with his meat as well as just feeding him biscuits. We also tried feeding him small amounts of food a few times a day but nothing seems to help. The vets didn’t give us much advice either. We are not too worried about him because he is not skinny he is still quite energetic and his coat is in good condition. Can anyone think of anything else we could do to save my carpets lol :)
"If you can't afford a vet you should not have a cat" This is a nonsense sentiment. I can't afford constant vet (or doctor visits) for that matter however my cat is a lot better off with me than the situation I rescued her from. We have three cats in total two of which throw up randomly every other day perhaps because they eat more than they need to, it's just what they do. If they were not comfortable enough they would have scarperred!
I can't stand these pious souls who say 'if you can't afford a vet you shouldn't have a cat'. I was bought up with cats, all strays, and there wasn't all this fuss about regular vets visits. These cats had kittens and likewise lived to a good old age with only one or two visits to the PDSA when they were old and more prone to ailments. I would suggest a visit to you nearest PDSA to have the cat checked over - especially as this has lasted two weeks. But as the poster above has noted - 'cats vomit at will' - just not every day for 2 weeks.
I do dislike these pious souls that say you shouldn't have a cat if you can't afford a vet. I was bought up with cats and their kittens and they were fine most of their lives with good common sense care given them by my parents and later me and only a few visits to The Pdsa as they got older. We have a cat now, a stray that has obviously been abandoned and which has adoptes US. While we are planning to take him to The PDSA [We can't afford vets bills either] we are sure that whatever transpires he is better off with us than living wild and sleeping rough. By all means take him for a checkover to the PDAS [assuming you are in the UK]
Would just like to say I have two kittens that I RESCUED!!! They are 6 months now and both little monkeys. When I wake up some mornings I find sick as well as poo in their tray and they both look at me wanting their breakfast, looking normal!!! I don't have a clue which on it is. I think I know what it is though because I caught FiFi playing with her litter the other day.....it turns to dust!!! So I will change their litter which is a cheaper way to find out than paying for a check up!!!! I don't agree with feeding your cat a malteaser though..........you are asking for problems then.
