Scabs and vomiting
Having some problems with my cat.  He's nearly 3 years old and has never had any problems before until now.  He's covered in scabs, and hasn't lost any fur, but has lately begun to vomit almost every day.  He's still eats regularly, even more than usual, but is losing weight and getting skinny/bony.  We've used One Spot liquid flea treatment, which seemed to help, it is now worse than ever.   He's a strictly indoor cat, and we haven't changed food or anything. Thought it might be either an allergic reaction to flea bites (roommate got a new kitten that was totally infested when he brought it into the house, and has the same problem) or something to do with not getting enough fatty acids in his food causing dry skin.  He has medium length hair, and a rather thick coat.  Also, we and reasonably certain that he is a wild hybrid, possibly 1/4 bobcat.  Any help would be appreciated!  Thanks!

Your cat has Miliary due to flea allergy and is vomiting due the intake of hair due to excess grooming.
Advantage for the fleas and a prednisone injection will solve the problem.
