My cat just vomited a red liquid. I can’t tell if it’s blood or if it’s from something he ate. I’m really concerned and I need help! Should I take him to the vet? I’ve enclosed a picture of what it looks like.

Hello,
Anytime a pet vomits I would recommend at least calling your vet to discuss the options. Is your cat eating normally? Drinking? Using the litter box with normal stool?  I agree with the other post, the vomit could be colored redish due to food colorings of the food your cat is eating, or it could be a bodily fluid.hard to know.
