7. Unfortunately, cats throw up more often than one would like

They are pretty good at throwing up anything that doesn't sit well. That's why there is less worry about food poisoning with cats. They will often eat grass then throw up, sort of a way of purging their stomachs (some cultures teach people to do this as well). They also throw up hairballs that look like *graphic warning* poo in liquid. But it isn't really a sign of illness or a cause to worry.

There are many signs that a cat is ill, like loss of appetite, listlessness, etc. But barfing isn't an alarm bell. And yes, some cats do seem to be embarrassed
