It sounds like your cat may be experiencing an infection with parasitic worms, which can cause vomiting and diarrhea. These worms can often be seen in the vomit or feces, and may resemble small seeds. In cats, common types of worms include roundworms, tapeworms, and hookworms.

Treatment for worm infections in cats typically involves the use of medication to kill the worms. Your veterinarian can recommend the appropriate medication for your cat based on the type of worm that is present and the severity of the infection. It is important to follow your veterinarian's instructions for administering the medication and completing the full course of treatment to ensure that the infection is fully resolved.

In addition to treating the infection, it is important to take steps to prevent future worm infections in your cat. This may involve regular deworming medication and keeping your cat indoors to prevent exposure to infected feces or other sources of infection.

If your cat is experiencing vomiting and diarrhea, it is important to contact your veterinarian for proper diagnosis and treatment. It is not recommended to try to treat the problem at home without the guidance of a veterinarian.
