It is impossible for us to even guess at what's wrong with your cat, if anything. Lots of cats hork up hairballs every day and some once a week. Remember, we are not vets here, just cat lovers. We cannot diagnose what might be wrong with your cat or suggest treatment through a computer. If your cat is not herself, laying around, not eating, hiding, etc., then you need to get her to a vet. If finances are a concern, most vets will accept payment plans or you can contact your local shelter to see if they offer reduced-cost days. If your cat has never been to a vet, now if the time to find one for just such questions. Good luck and hope he/she feels better.

Why are people so vague? And lazy? Ok seriously I am new but this is quite annoying. Any decent pet owner knows anything happening with a cat/dog/pet out of the norm or usual, just like you would for yourself... what would you do? GO SEE A DR! In this case it's called a VET! Or better call one and ask. Some will help you out over the phone and make sure it was not a hair ball, or you changing the food or worst they could guess if the pet ate something they shouldn't have. In which case you would need to go in because it could kill them.

Your cat needs to go to the vet for an exam. Recently one of my cats was vomitting or dry hacking and I took him to the vet. He did x-rays and bloodwork to rule out any obstructions or liver or kidney problems. Luckily he couldn't find anything. We think he has some kind of food allergy. Kitties should not be throwing up every day, this is an indicator that something is wrong.
