Cat vomiting and feels weak


My cat ate the whole bird 3 days ago and the same and the next day after that was pretty lethargic,but yesterday she was OK, just eating a lot of grasses to help her stomach. This morning at 4.30, however, she threw up, then at 6.30 and a little bit later. She doesn't eat, clearly feels very weak and sick.

Anything but the incident with the bird was as usual. She occasionally catches a bird and eats it, and didn't have any issues with that except sometimes she does digest them very slowly and might not eat for the whole day and just lie around.

We're really worried this time, it is kind of early here to take her to the vet, besides, one additional important detail: my cat has FIV or FELV, so any stress or additional bacteria or viruses quickly impact her.

Additional Details

I gave her activated charcoal with water, but she threw part of this mixture up later.

Any ideas what it could be?

There is a chance that the bird was sick or ate something bad, which your cat would have picked up from the bird. Make sure she's drinking water and if she does not improve by the time you read this message, make her a vet appointment (you can always cancel if she miraculously recovers)! ^_^
