Weird cat sick this morning

Warning, do not read if you're eating breakfast!

I have a neutered male aged 10. He's always been quite sicky- once a week is normal, twice a week isn't unusual. We've taken him to the vets a couple of times about it but they say he's the picture of health and is just sicky. Recently I got a furminator hoping that it would help reduce the amount he is being sick but I haven't been using it very long and he's not that keen so I can't give him a proper going over.

Anyway, this morning his sick was all white with a few chunks of catfood. He doesn't have anything other than cat food in this house but it looked like he'd drunk shitloads of milk. But he doesn't go out very much or very far so it's unlikely (but not impossible) that he's eaten elsewhere. The only other thing I can think is that he's eaten some of the suet bird food, which I wouldn't put past him because he is a greedy bastard.

He's all up to date with worming btw. Any clues what the white sick could be? Should I worry? Is there any other to stop him being sick? We've tried a few different cat foods and it hasn't made much difference.

Thanks smile

One of my cats is a comfort eater, which causes him to throw up. I think when their little tummies get too full, they just expel it.

If he's a greedy guts, then it's entirely possible he's eaten the bird's suet. Cats's noses have evolved to sniff out fat.

Have his teeth been checked recently, Eau ?

Yes, the vet nurse gave him the once over a couple of months ago and said he was in great shape for a cat his age. And she said I have to stop calling him fatso grin He is just 'big' (still looks fat to me).

Thanks, I will keep an eye on the bird food. It's all hanging in a tree but some gets knocked onto the ground by the birds. It's a small and prickly tree so there's no way he could have climbed up and helped himself. He's too lazy anyway!

He does have many good points, he's not just fat, lazy and pukey.

My mum's dog ate one of those once and was very sick. Is he ok in himself now?

He's fine, thanks. He never seems ill apart from the puking. I don't know how he can throw up that much yucky looking stuff and still be fine!
