Vomiting and diarrhoea in cats is fairly common and is not an automatic cause for concern. When both symptoms occur at the same time, however, it can indicate an underlying issue and can lead to unhealthy complications.

If your cat is experiencing bouts of vomiting and diarrhoea at the same time, observe it for 12 hours. Remove the cat's food to prevent triggering more diarrhoea and vomiting and limit water intake. If the symptoms stop and the cat's behaviour is normal, it is not a cause for concern. Continued vomiting and diarrhoea, however, requires professional attention.
A veterinarian will examine the cat and ask you questions to determine the cause of the cat's vomiting and diarrhoea. If the cat is dehydrated, the vet may administer intravenous fluids. A thorough examination will be required to determine the cause of the symptoms.
Examine the stool and vomit for blood. If blood is present, take the cat to a veterinarian immediately and do not wait to see if the symptoms stop. If you have reason to suspect that the cat has ingested something poisonous, take it to the vet immediately.
