So worried- please reassure

I came home from work this evening and my husband announced that my 3 yr old cat had just been sick. Apparently it was very smelly (tmi sorry). Anyway, the poor little guy is fast asleep on my daughter's bed. He didn't acknowledge me when I stroked him and seems very quiet (if that makes sense). Am extremely worried as he ate a mouse last night (in our bedroom - we heard it!). He left the entrails behind as usual. Going to call the vet in the morning if not better but I know I won't sleep very well as am a worrier. Please reassure me he will be fine! Tia

I suspect he will be. Most otherwise healthy cats will upchuck every now and then just like people do. My chap hurled an enormous hairball yesterday, moped about for a bit and was fine after a nap. Your lad might have picked up a bug whilst out and about so I'd definitely pop to the vets (I'm very much a better safe than sorry person) but it's probably very easily "fixed".

Thank you. Am such a worrier!

It's hard not to worry when they can't tell you what's wrong. Most of the time Leroy's only got to breathe slightly differently and I've got my contacts list open ready to call the vets 😁.

I'm just the same! I'm sure if I had kids I'd be nowhere near as anxious. As I'm a paediatric nurse they'd probably have to have a lib hanging off before I took them to the doctors. The cats only have to sneeze and I worry! (Exaggerates slightly!)

Thanks guys. Well just up and guess what? The little monkey was running around the kitchen after a mouse. Absolutely. Fine. I have rescued mouse and released him into the rain. Simba is shooting me evil looks. Honestly!
