my cats vomiting and not drinking or eating!!! HELP***

my cat is 6 years old recently diagnosed with diabetes he is a very thin lean cat so the vet thinks there is an underling issue is the problem. but yesterday he started puking for no reason and the vet said hes severely dehydrated and would cost me 1000 dollars to have him stay over night and have fluids put in him and i dont have that kind of money sitting around. so i took him home and iv been giving him water from a syring but if i give him to much he pucks up a yellowy water substance and then foam. and he wont eat anything iv tried everything!! i need help please someone help!!!!!!!

Hi.  I would most definitely call around to other vets and check prices.  Explain your situation, and I'm pretty sure that others will not be anywhere near as high as $1000/night.  My vet is very expensive here, and for the care you described, it would be something around $200.

And, you can always contact your local humane society or ASPCA, they will always give discounts on some good medical care, but you may have to bring something to prove your income.  This is worth the call.

In the mean time, if this were my cat, I would run out and buy some meat baby foods.  Most cats can't resist this, even when they feel like crap.  They really like ham and chicken baby foods the best.  Those have been faves of my cats.

And, one other thing.....A vet can give the cat subQ(subcutaneous) fluids under the skin of the back of the neck, instead of an IV.  This is very inexpensive.  They could've given your cat the subQ's and sent him home and he would've felt a lot better.  I'm seriously wondering why your vet didn't suggest this.

Best wishes!

Come back and let me know if any of these suggestions worked.
