I have always been a cat person from my childhood. One incident in particular, after my college graduation I adopted a kitten. Fasta few days were fine but one morning she sharted vomiting after eating. I didn’t give much of my thought but I got panicked when she vomited again and again. 

My sister and I immediately took her to a vet and explained my cat’s vomiting. I thought she wouldn’t make it. The vet used a tube and found a hairball. Interesting fact, most of the cat vomiting causes due to harmless reasons. 

Today I will  to you why your cat vomits after eating: 

Hairs of cat

A cat losses plenty of hair every day. These hairs scattered everywhere, from their living space to their food. When they play this fur goes into their mouth and they swallow it. Most of the time cat vomit due to this reason. You can easily avoid this. You need to brush your cat’s furs regularly and keep clean there living space.
