my cat pukes a lot
My cat got neutered and declawed about two years ago, and they also gave him some type of necessary shot.  Every since then, he has been puking.  It started out only once a month, and then it got a little worse.  My husband and I thought maybe it was his cat food and stress so we changed his cat food, and removed the stress (except for my two children, one of which annoys the cat really bad).  His puking stopped again for a little bit, and now he pukes almost every day.  What could be wrong with him???

I'd guess offhand it's hairballs or a parasite he picked up. Start by trying an over the counter wormer and trying a hairball remedy formula. If that doesn't take care of it, he probably needs to go to a vet for a de-parasiting.

We try to keep our child away from the cat, but he doesnt like to listen.  He is only one, so he still has to learn that the cat needs to be left alone.  The cat is kind of an antagonizer.  He will come up to my son and rub on him, and that is when my son starts pestering him.

Well, he must not mind it too much or he wouldn't keep going over to get aggravated! :)

Reminds me of a video I saw of an older cat being overwhelmed by six puppies. It looked contented...but very harassed.

My cat used to puke alot too, and I put him on Science Diet Sensitive Stomach.  It seems to have helped dramatically.  He will still throw up every once in a while, but not near as much as he used to.

I agree with BlueEyedOne.  Science Diet Sensitive Stomach helped with my cat as well. Or you could also try Science Diet Hairball Control.  Check the puke... if it's got bits of hairball in it you might want to try the latter.

Thank you guys for your advice.  I did notice hair in his puke about a week ago, so I am sure that is what his problem is.  Thanks again.
