Pure bred cats tend to have sensitive digestive systems and pool water does contain chemicals and chlorine which could cause stomach upset. Large dogs are often abl to drink from pools without being harmed but smaller animals, such as felines, are more likely to be affected. Make sure your kitty has fresh, clean water - it should be changed at least once a day. Have you tried placing his water bowl near the pool?
If all else fails, try keeping him out of the pool enclosure altogether.
Does he vomit immediately after drinking the water? If the vomiting continues, please contact your vet, as he or she will be able to determine what is causing your cat to become ill.
Well I think that your cat is vomiting from the chlorine in the pool like when someone after dunks you your not ready so you swallow water and about to vomit after. If your cat stop and still vomits then SEE A VET!!!
Lot of cats drink from the pool and then vomit, my cats Jack and Milo do the same thing! Our vet told us that it may NOT BE THE CHLORINE, she said that it might just be the fact of drinking the water and then eating! She Said that was the most common reason for the doing this. Since cats don't FULLY chew thier food it expands in thier stomach and it may be a reaction with the cat food, the chlorine and your cats stomach acid. I wish you a LOT of luck! And if this problem continues see a VET!!!
My cat drinks out of the pool, and during the summer it seems to dehydrate her and screw up her body chemistry.
I recently put a large clear bowl out by the edge of the pool and I keep it filled with regular water. 9 times out of 10 when she goes out, she drinks from the bowl instead of the pool. Go figure. Lol
Yes, I think you should not let your cat drink pool water and see if she still vomits. If she keeps vomiting I think you should take he to the vet. GOOD LUCK!!!
It is not a good idea. My cat was drinking water from an artisanal fountain in our yard (the water had chlorine) and later we realized that is not OK. My cat got an Inflammatory Digestive Disease (very sensitive stomach) and was vomiting. Our vet gave us Z/D diet food and we have to try for a month to see if that is working OK with him. SO avoid letting your pet drinking this kind of water. Pet are very sensitive and they have to eat properly food and only clear water.
So we save their love and our money for vet (they are very expensive today).

If A CAT has rabies and drinks from a pool can the water be contAMINATED?
