    Is this something that suddenly happened? If so you may want to have a vet check her out. It may be that she is just eating too fast. If that is the case try putting something in the bowl with the food if it is dry like a ball. Then she would have to slow down to eat around it.

    In my experience with dog and cat \"puke\" :D it is always unchewed. They really don\'t chew kibble because their teeth aren\'t designed to, most of it just goes right down. She could be eating too fast, or some cats have an extremely sensitive stomach. A trip to the vet may do you good. What kind of food are you feeding? :^:

    I would check with your vet. Abbie used to throw up all the time. I blamed it on her fur balls and the fact that she ate her food so quickly. But it developed into Inflammatory Bowel Disease and later into Intestinal Lymphoma. The sooner you can figure out any tummy sensitivities, allergies or issues, the better you can prevent something as serious. When trying different foods, you need to be sure to change them slowly, only gradually adding the new food in. A sudden change, even to a food that might work in the long run, can cause tummy upset.
