so one of my friends out of town for a while and i am taking care of his cat Rusty. the poor little beast weighs at least 400 lbs.<br><br><br><br>
anyway i feel bad for him. he throws up quite a bit. i am wondering what the problem may be and if i should worry. he just had an operation (had a benign lump removed from his side) so maybe this is why he does it so much. approx 4 times per week but i know even before the operation he still did it but dont know how often. ive heard of hair balls before but there is no hair involved when he throws up. he only eats dry senior cat food that was recommended and once in a while special treats. is this normal.<br><br><br><br>
also one of my girlfriends has two cats and when she leaves town i watch her cats. now one of her cats eats poop. is this normal?! she is wondering about it too.

the cat may be throwing up from stress...<br><br>
after all its companion is out of town and he is left all alone with you<br><br><br><br>
as for the eating poop... with dogs, its a sign that theyre missing something nutrition wise... im not sure with cats... id contact a vet<br><br><br><br>
hope the kittys are doing okay<br><br>
