My 2yr old cat was sick last night, and again this morning. She's a bit off her food, but wanting to eat. Should I maybe just give her biscuits for the time being? Does she need to see a vet? She seems happy in herself.

What do you mean 'off her food, but wanting to eat' hemel ?

(Is she an outside/hunting cat by the way and has she been wormed recently?)

She seems hungry but then stops after a few mouthfuls. Normally she cleans her bowl! She does go outside, potentially could be due for a worming tablet. I'll check on the calendar.

See how she gets on later today, maybe. The occasional sick goes with the territory but a couple in quick succession (and it depends on the consituents of the sick - eg an obvious fur clump or whatever) allied with not eating would make me edgy.

I'd keep her inside today and if she's sick again or doesn't start eating, maybe have her up to the vet. Is she drinking and using her tray all right?

My cat has also been sick a few times lately but he apparently has a sensitive stomach because of his breed. He seemed fine otherwise so I changed him over to dry food for a few days. This has helped and he is now back on wet food and hasn't been sick.
Maybe your cat just ate something that didn't agree with her outside? Try the biscuits and see how she goes.

She was a little bit sick again this afternoon, so have just had her to the vets. She has a temperature so has been given an anti sickness injection and an anti biotic injection. Poor thing. The vet has also given us some sensitive tummy food so hopefully she will feel better soon. She perked up a bit just before we took her, but glad we went. Thankyou x
