This is not a recent problem, more like a 13 year and counting problem and its coming to a head. His name is Gump (Forest Gump), short blue hair cat, possibly with blue russian in him, I know most say that about any blue/grey cat, he doesn't look like a pure-bred russian, but has like 4/5 features of the russian. Anyways...

For most of his life he has had a vomiting problem. At random times moments after he eats, he will vomit the food up (which isn't too bad since its just chewed up food). He can sometimes go weeks or months without doing this, and then he'll have a spell and do it for a week.

I cannot say if he is over eating, he has grown skinny in his old age but nothing dramatic, his weight has been steady for the last several years. Never seen blood in the vomit, so there isn't major damage being done to his throat & tubage. The vomit itself as said is typically food he just ate, for the most part he eats dry food, so its just soggy cat food.

But since he has been doing this for 13 years, its starting to get on people's nerves, including mine unfortunatly. He has the habit of getting on furniture when he does this, such as my bed, kitchen table, the area rug in my room (of course not the easily clean wooden floor).

So...anyone have any suggestions on maybe stopping this habit? Cause the dreaded words of "he's had a good life, maybe its his time" has been said. Of course I won't put him down until he truely has a major problem, but maybe I can solve the problem.
