Was in the garden this morning, came back to find my cat had vomited 3 very large amounts of fresh blood.
Rushed him to the vets locally, she kept him in for observation and for bloods.
He hasn't vomited anymore blood thank goodness.
He was depressed in himself.
I love him to bits and thought I was going to lose him.
What a shock, took a photo of the blood amount to show the vet
He has just come home at 1800 he seems okay, hungry and very loving.
Has to go back in the morning for more meds and a check up
Vet thinks was an ulcer he's only 2

The most usual explanation for that is an ulcer - it's terrifying to watch but the blood is actually just the ulceration bursting. They are far more comfortable once it has burst.

Big hug to you - I've had this with one of my cats and the sight of blood on the floor turned my knees to jelly - it was like a murder scene!

Try not to worry Mayflower - there shouldn't be further complications :hug:

P.S: Forgot to say, my cat had a bacterial infection which caused the ulcer. The only further treatment was antibiotics. x

Oh that sounds awful Mayflower...

I can imagine it must have been a huge shock seeing all that blood..

I'm really glad that the vet thinks she will be ok. Lots of TLC for you both tonight :hug:
