The onset of a viral or infectious disease may be accompanied by vomiting with bile, as the liver cleans the blood of bacteria and toxins released during their vital activity. With each passing day, vomiting with bile will become more frequent until treatment is carried out.
Changing the usual food can cause vomiting. The liver cannot always cope with the increased nutritional value of a new type of food. In this case, vomiting occurs, first the cat vomits food masses, later - with an admixture of bile.
A foreign body in the stomach is also one of the causes of vomiting. Cats love to play with small details, swallowing them easily. If the part passes through the intestinal tract, it will come out naturally. If it stops in the stomach, then vomiting of bile is inevitable.
