Savannah occasionally throwing up


Savannah Super Cat
Hey Everyone,

Our Savannah has recently started to throw up though is still eating, high energy and very much herself in every other way. This morning we decided to check her stool and found that shes been eating my wifes hair.

Would the hair cause her to throw up? and should we be worried that there is some stuck in her belly?

Any advice would be appreciated!

I have one that eats plastic. Plastic from the case of cat food or water. If I don't catch her right away, she throws up soon after.

I think it's very possible that the hair is causing her to throw up, and if the hair is long it could get stuck and cause ongoing issues. Of course it could be something completely unrelated. Since it's persistent I agree with Paige, she should be checked by a vet.

Poor Lyra Bean is not going to like going to see Dr Eaglefeather for a check up :(. Breaks my heart to hear her cry in her carrier. But, it is definitely warranted....

So nice to have such a supportive and helpful Savannah Community out there :). Thanks so much for the advise everyone!!!
