My adult cat sometimes vomits just after eating her dry food (different kinds). Could she just be over eating?

She was a starving stray a year ago & can never seem to get enough food. I do restrict her quantity, but she eats fast & takes food from other's bowls. She's not "deprived". I give her 2 ounces of dry food 3 times a day.

She might have worms. Worms take away nutrients from the cat and can cause a cat to eat a lot. You should make an appointment with a vet to get her checked out!

Or maybe her stomach just can't handle dry food. Try giving her canned food instead. Check the ingredients and make sure there are no by-products, wheat, corn, or soy.

Here's an article that explains why cats need canned food.

Cats will sometimes get sick if they eat too fast and/or too much. However, if you are concerned about it and especially if she is losing weight, you should take her in to see the vet. We are not trained vets here so we cannot offer any medical advice.

Your kitty may have worms, but it seems that it's really that she's taking stuff from other food. When her stomach gets used to one kind of kibbles coming down, it can give her a stomach-ache when suddenley the food changes. Try putting her food in a different place where she cannot reach other foods, or perhaps just mix them together. :)
