Default Projectile Vomiting In Cats

I've had a little female cat since she was a kitten. She was feral and
abandoned under a bush by her mother so we took her in, bathed her to
kill off the fleas and had her spayed... that was 4 years ago.

She's not exactly 'friendly' most of the time, preferring to come and
go as she pleases tho *is* friendly with my 12 year old daughter,
allowing only her to carry her, and sleeping on her bed during the
day.

After a few years insisting on only eating 'Whiskas, we tried her on
Purina dry food which she really took to and refuses to eat anything
else we give her (tho is till partial to birds lizards, mice etc she
catches herself). She has fresh water available of course but
otherwise that's all we give her.

Problem is that she has taken to regularly throwing up... often just
after eating. This might not be as bad as it sounds since our dogs
clean up after her... except of course unless she has something wrong
with her.

She doesn't throw up after *every* meal... maybe once a week or so...
but it's still a concern and we're wondering what we should do about
it - if anything. Other than this occasional problem... and forgetting
she's 'house trained' now and then... she's pretty much a healthy
animal, if skittish.

Should we be worried?? She's expendable so no biggie.

Just by reading what you wrote and nothing else I can see that you are
NOT cat person but maybe a dog person. Please don’t get me wrong.
There is nothing wrong with not being a cat person but you need to
understand that dog people simply are incapable of caring for a cat
and vise versa so you need to make a decision, either you need to get
rid of your dogs or your cat, and the answer is obvious.

Oh by the way, with technology being what it is today unless you’re a
troll chances are your 12 year old daughter is going to read what you
wrote her in the archive search that her personal computer will
perform for her so don’t expect her to hold your hand on your death-
bed or any flowers on your grave fifty years from now.

No it won’t help that you simply say you’re a troll, in the future
they will KNOW if you really were a troll.

No, but until you DO figure out the cure, if she barfs on the lawn, who
cares?
Haven't had a cat since puberty hit and I became allergic, but IIRC it
is usually a reaction to eating too fast. As in, they think somebody
else will eat it if they don't finish it. Do the dogs steal from her
bowl? Solution may be as simple as a household I used to know, where the
cat dish was halfway up the wall in the garage, next to where the
stepladder was kept. Cat could get to it easily, but the dogs couldn't
even see it. Their dish was right below, so they assumed they were
smelling their own food, and didn't keep looking. Wish I had taken a
picture of them all peacefully feeding, not 4 feet apart.

Failing that, try smaller portions and see if that makes a difference.
If she wants more right away, she'll tell you. That is a common problem
with dogs.

It's a long shot, but have you tried giving the cat some hair ball medicine?
It might be a partial obstruction. If that doesn't work, then look into a
worming medicine.

Yes it is. If I try smaller portions and the cat doesn't eat, then she
may die. She is taking in very little which icn't being projectile
