Cat and Vomiting

My four year old, indoor cat can vomit up to a couple times a week but most of the time a couple of times a month. She is a little plumper than she probably should be, but not by much and her coat is healthy and shiny. She’s always had a clean bill of health when we’ve taken her in for check-ups. She loves it when I bring her lemon grass from my garden; is there something I can grow in a window that that she can eat to help settle her tummy?

It is important that your cat be on a good, homemade diet as many commercial foods can contribute to problems such as vomiting, diarrhoea and constipation. Please see the entry "Ringworm" on this site ( for resources containing recipes. You may find that once her diet has changed that the vomiting stops. As for windowsill plants, most cats love wheatgrass: easy to grow and often sold as "Catgrass" at most pet shops. Couchgrass (Agropyren repens) also works well.
