Animal Shelters are quite aware of adoption in haste. Many cats are returned accompanied by reasons such as, "This cat just didn't work out, can I look at another?", or "The cat doesn't like us. He hides in the closet all the time." Inadequate preparation of the new home and psychological preparation of the new owner are at the heart of the problem.

Why Is My Cat Vomiting?

Why Is My Cat Vomiting?

Most cats vomit occasionally, so how do you know when to worry? This depends on whether the cat is otherwise well or has health problem causing her to vomit. Clear as mud?
Look at it this way. Occasional vomiting can be normal. For example, when a feral cat goes hunting, she gobbles down the kill extra quick before another cat steals it. She digests what she can, and then vomits back the indigestible bits like fur or feather. This is normal, and Mother Nature’s way of keeping her healthy.

There is an argument which says pet cats, just like feral cats, are designed to vomit from time to time. For a lap cat this might be triggered by a hairball, when hair rubbing the stomach lining triggers the vomiting reflex and up it pops onto the lounge room carpet. This is an example of a ‘happy’ vomiter doing as nature intended with nothing much to worry about.

Why Does My Cat Drink More Water?

Is your cat drinking more water than she used too?
If she is, then this could be significant and a chat to your vet is advisable.
The vet-speak term for drinking more is ‘polydipsia’ and the word for peeing-more is ‘polyuria’. There are many reasons a cat may drink and pee more, of which the chart toppers are kidney or liver disease, overactive thyroid glands, and sugar diabetes. But thirst can occur for other reasons, not all of which are worrying.
Cats are secretive about their drinking habits, which means it’s not always obvious when a cat is drinking more. Needing to refill the water bowl regularly is one clue, but the litter box is a bigger one. What goes into the cat must come out, and so large, wet patches in the litter tray bear witness to her thirst.

When Drinking More Is Normal
Have you ever changed your cat’s food, and then been suspicious she is drinking more?
If the menu swap was from canned food to dry kibble, then it’s more than likely she is and you have the explanation right there.
