Hi my cat has diarrhea and is vomiting and will not eat when we get her to eat she just vomits, what should I do

My cat is a 4 month old female and we are very concerned about her. We have tried giving her hard food, soft food, chicken, tuna, and cat milk, but she is refusing to eat any of it. She has very wet diarrhea and vomits whenever we finally get her to eat a little.

She needs to be examined by a vet, sooner rather than later. An inability to eat or to hold down food indicates that something is very wrong, and it's impossible to know how to treat her without a diagnosis from a vet. Her frequent vomiting and diarrhea will quickly lead to dehydration which can be very dangerous, especially in such a young kitten. Call your vet's office to make financial arrangements if necessary, but please get her in as soon as possible before this becomes an emergency.

This is an EMERGENCY! DON'T WAIT to get your kitten to a vet. There is definitely something serious going on and your kitten will quickly become dehydrated due to the vomiting and diarrhea going on. Please get her help ASAP!

Take her to the vet ASAP! Also milk actually can upset a cat's stomach & shouldn't be given to them. Your cat probably has some kind of an infection & needs antibotics.
