Vomiting white foam and lethargic.

My cat, who is usually a good eater and very active, starting acting very lethargic and vomiting white foam. We have recently changed cat foods but my other two cats are fine. Has anyone else had this problem? He started this yesterday and has continued to vomit white foam through the night. PLEASE HELP!!!!

Thanks for the responses.....I took him to the Vet immediately and the good news is he didn't find anything "horrible" wrong with him...he's keeping him overnight and giving him nausea/vomiting meds and antibiotics and will watch him until tomorrow. If he's not acting better by Monday I will take him back for blood work, xrays, etc. Hopefully he ate something that just didn't agree with him temporarily...after all...he does like to peel wall paper off of the wall and eat it so there's no telling.

Was the food change gradual or abrupt? If it happened too quickly, his tummy may have just reacted badly. Otherwise, you're probably right to assume he got his mouth on something he shouldn't have eaten (I'm a kitty who eats dryer lint, so I know all about that). I hope he'll continue to improve at the vet's office and at home.
