mother cat vomiting?

My parents cat gave birth 11 weeks ago and stopped nursing her kittens completely about 1 week ago (they were still occasionally suckling for comfort..not food) The first kitten left on the weekend and the mother has been throwing up a couple times a day since then. Could this just be a coinsidence or is it anxiety over her kitten leaving. She had 4 kittens in total and over the last couple of weeks hasn't really paid alot of attention to them so I don't think she is really upset by her leaving. The weather could be a factor because we have been through a heat wave this week but it doesn't seem to affect the other cat/kittens. Is it a result of her milk drying up, although I've never heard of that either. I guess i'm just wondering if this has happened to anyone elses female after weaning. Not sure if it's just a hairball...she never has had them before. She is an indoor cat. It seems to be her food and occasionally clear bile she is throwing up. Any suggestions or comments would be helpful. Thanks

I doubt that kind of physical symptom could be associated to stress over her baby leaving :/ It might signal somethng more, I would definitely keep her hydrated and watch her. Consult a vet about it too. Poor mama cat.

I would observe her further, she might experience some conditions with all you said changes/situation and would be fine soon, if it still continuous, take her to the vet.

Definitely take her in to see your vet. While her vomiting can be something simple, such as an indication that she may have developed an allergy to one or some of the ingredients in her cat food, it can also be something more serious.

If it is something simple, such as a food allergy... Note that most types of natural cat food doesn't contain and synthetic preservatives, flavors or artificial ingredients, which makes it easier for cats to process/digest it. So, you might want to look into giving her a natural type of food.

Cats also tend to vomit after eating a meal too when they eat too fast or need to cough up a hair ball. Please be sure to monitor your cat's food intake and use the directions provided to on the cat food label as a basis for measuring the cat food. If you think your cat's vomiting is more related to her recent pregnancy/birthing, then definitely have her checked out by her vet immediately!
