Does this warrant vets or not?

Ok lovely cat lovers, I need a bit of advice.

My D Ratbagcatbag has for the past few days on occasion hacking likes she's trying to bring a fur ball up, only very infrequently and is still her mad self, meowing chasing stuff, eating fine etc.

Just come downstairs to her depositing a strand of grass in bile on the floor, she's nipped out and come back in and seems to be doing it more, and sort of sneezing (but not, more like huffing air while considering getting rid of more bile) however she was doing this whilst stalking mr for food, I've given it her and she's eaten all of it and now disappeared again, I was on the emergency vets trip required, DH thinks she's fine as she's eating and to keep an eye on her.
Do I see how she is when she returns again, and if the same take her to the emergency vets, or do I wait until tomorrow. If she needs it I'm more than happy to pay whatever so cost isn't the issue, it's she really hates the vets.

Thoughts please? Am I being a PFB cat owner?

Hmmm cats now upstairs asleep, curled up and no huffing/ hacking in site. Only slight meow/purrs when I stroke her. Argh.

I would leave her til tomorrow at least and reassess then. My 2 go through phases of mysterious puking, sometimes involving strands of grass. If She's still looking for food and behaving normally I would wait.

Thanks peggotty - I would hate to leave her in pain, but she doesn't appear to be at all, or even remotely uncomfortable now she's had tea and is on the bed next to the radiator. I'll be watching her all night now grin she already thinks I'm a nuts owner I'm sure of it.

grin you are indeed a pfb cat owner - she's testing you, you know!

I'm already trained to her whims - not bad for a stray that never quite left nearly four years ago. We do laugh and call us the lower species in the house beneath her of course. I'm sure she's plotting whether my response time was suitable to her requirements and what punishment I will receive if she feels it was poorly inadequate grin
