    I have a little 5 month old kitten who is usually very active and happy and loves playing with his doggy pal Odie. Tonight my neighbours dog who is very friendly usually got into my house whilst i was downstairs. When I came back up the dogs face was bleeding and Garfield (kitten) was hiding on top of the freezer. I picked him up and he clung to me till the dog was gone ans then for a while after. He almost immediately began throwing up and hasn’t stopped since once an hour or so. His meow sounds wheezy and i cant gwt him to the vet till the morning. Anyone have any idea what this is. I’m going out of my mind with worry. Don’t want to sleep until I know he’s ok 🙁

    I don’t know what happened but it seems wee Garfield was scared to near death. In that state, it’s not usual for him to vomit because his nerves are jumping around. As long as there’s no blood on him or in the vomit, I recommend that you hold him close and reinforce that he’s loved and safe.
    He should settle down but you might call the vet. tomorrow and let them know what happened.

    I’m sorry to say but it will be difficult for wee Garfield to see the other dog again.

    If the dog got his mouth on him and bit or shook him, I would be afraid that he could have hurt him inside. It’s highly unusual for a cat to vomit non stop and is a signal that something is not right. I would be afraid to wait until morning, and I know I would be very careful of him around the dog. Obviously, he was trying to protect himself and he scratched the dog in the face. Who knows what happened after that.

    Did you check him over for puncture wounds around his neck area. A 5 month old kitten is not very big and the dog could have wrapped his mouth entirely around his neck or lung/stomach area. I know I would definitely make the call and see what the vet says to do.

    I’m sorry Kelly. I forget how good kits are at hiding injuries. As KZ said please, call the vet.
