I addressed that in the original post. 

 

Ethylene glycol is possible if found by accident. I had thought dogs were more attracted to it than cats. She does hide out under the cars a lot, but my cars don't leak any. She doesn't stray far from home. 

 

I haven't read the link yet, but I will soon. Thanks for that. 

 - a good reason to try to changeover to the Blue instead of the Green.

Blue has the Added Bittering (taste) Agents

Green bile represent your cat eating grass. Normal. but the question is where is she eating this grass at? Do you spray for ants? Or is there grass under your roses?

I only use boric acid for ants, non-toxic to mammals. I have seen her eat grass, but nowhere near the roses. The roses are in planters with no grass around them. 

 

I have had heat exhaustion several times. The puke I'm describing is what you get when you've emptied your stomach and still keep puking. No solids.

Thanks for responding. Did you get a diagnosis from a vet? Do you know if the kidneys and liver were affected? 

No sorry no diagnose from the vet. Only what I watched. One I found dead still with a rat inside her mouth and swollen belly. The other with an open rotten belly where you could see still the parts of a rat inside her.  I guess complete failure of all internal organs but too late for a diagnose 🙂

OP here. I forgot to mention: Cat stopped eating the fish a week or two ago. It smelled the same to me. Maybe she sensed something different about recent batches, or had had her fill of it due to the impending change in her body chemistry. Maybe her kidneys were telling her they'd had enough. Does any of that make sense?

Cats are normally very sensitiv if they can smell something suspicious they don't eat it or drink it. I watched one day a Thai putting anti mosquito substance into one of these flower bowls in front of his house where some cats are drinking sometimes from it. And they still do.  I think it isn't very healthy for the cats. But I can only guess and try to give a direction. 

 

BTW: I only give my cats fresh water from the water machine. I don't give them the tap water. Too much chemicals.

The smaller of our 2 cats often catches rats from the ricefields behind our house . Just sometimes there is the bit of guts she doesn't like left on the floor . We can't stop her catching rats it is what she does , comes in looking bloated and we know she needs no food from us. The big cat Cola is too big and too lazy to go ratting.

OP

 

I don't think mackeral meant for human consumption should be a problem

 

With an outdoors cat, easy enough for them to consume something they shouldn't. Maybe a lizard or rodenty that in turn ate something with insecticide; maybe a poisonous plant etc.

 

How old is the cat? As after a certain age kidney disease is quite common and occurs spontaneously

 

The greeen vomit is ismnplky bile coming up, happens when there is deep retching in an empty stomach and that in turn will happen in kidney failure as the toxins accumulate

 

I went through something just like what you describe with an 8 month old kitten recently. Vomiting up bile, wouldn't eat, became dehydrated, labs show renal failure. While 5 days in hospital perked her back up, 2 weeks on her labs still show kidney failure so I am much afraid it will be chronic. We don't know if it is secondary to something else e.g. poisoning or GI issue that caused dehydration and lack of blood flow to the kidneys, or if the renal failure was the primary problem and everything else secondary to it. At her young age if it was primary renal failure would have to be congenital, which does sometime occur.  I am still hoping it will prove to have been acute and resolve but that hope is dwindling now.

 

I have a much older cat (22 years!) who has chronic kidney disease and has had for 5 years now but that's another matter, natural occurrence as cats age (and quite possible for them to have years of quality life after diagnosis if you are willing to do the work of caring for them e.g. special diet, S.C. fluids etc).

"I don't think mackeral meant for human consumption should be a problem"

 

No disrespect intended, in fact I appreciate you as one of the consistently sensible commentators here. I hope you don't mind my asking: What qualifies you to make that statement? Clearly you're a pet owner with significant experience, and I recall several very thoughtful comments on medical issues. Do you have professional training or experience?

 

I brought my cat home yesterday. The vet and I were ready to conclude that a daily uncooked fish was too much. The cat is confined to the laundry room. She hates it, but it's a first step in transition to making her an indoor cat.

Very common for cats to stop eating when suffering from kidney failure. They become nauseous. Nothing to do with the specific food.
