My cat is sick. She won't stop throwing up and she acts like shes gagging. If she eats she throws up the food. We found out that she drank some cleaning stuff from the toilet. I don't know what to do to make her stop throwing up. I gave her a pill and 2 hours later she drank some water and started throwing up bile! What can I do to help her? ? Or how can I get her to keep her food down?
I know it's late, but the best thing would be to call a vet. I looked through my cat book, and it says to take the cat in ASAP for something like that. At least if you talk to the vet, they might have a suggestion for you until you can bring her in.

I tried to take her to the vet and we live in a very tiny town so all the vets are closed on weekends. we called the vet she said to give her a pill(We did) And to wait until monday unless we wanted to spend $200 just for her to come in!
I wish I could offer better advice here, but I know for me I would spend the money and get her to a vet... You need to decide what you are willing to do for your pet.
I would place her in a room by herself with her litter, food and water and leave her be, since she is probably in some pain and discomfort (vomiting sure isn't fun) Check on her every hour and offer some gentle petting, but otherwise try and leave her alone until you can get her to a vet. She's probably really stressed out and not happy.
I hope your kitty is ok.

I agree!!! /she needs medical attention ASAP, are you sure she "drank" something and didn't "eat" something? My first thought was a houseplant. I don't know if cats will drink anything toxic, but I know for a fact they will nibble on dangerous house plants..What kind of pill did you give her? Wish I could too offer better advice...my thoughts are with you tonight...

The vet said to give her something for her stomach, I'm not sure what it's called but it's just something to sooth her stomach. And we saw her drinking out of the toilet the day before she got sick and realized today that we had put cleaning stuff in it.
I think you should take her to the emergency clinic. Be sure to take the container of the cleaning chemicals she may have ingested as the vet may want to look at it or call poison control. That may or may not be the cause of her symptoms (probably not, IMO), but just in case. Either way, it sounds like she is very sick and should be seen now.

Please, even if you drive to the next largest city, take your kitty to the emergency vet, if you value her life. She sounds like she is seriously ill, and vomiting may be saving her life by getting rid of the chemicals she drank.
