Q. My kitten had got fixed on 12-7-2015 and after a few days she was ok she was eating and playing with my other kitten and she just started vomiting.

A. It is possible your kitten may have over exerted herself while she is still healing, or may have an infection forming from her suture site. It is best to look over her spay suture and look for any signs of infection such as redness or heat upon touch, pain, or oozing of green or yellow discharge. If you see these signs, it is best to contact your veterinarian to have the area examined. If she has only vomited once, and you see no other signs of illness, then feeding a bland meal of plain boiled chicken lightly warmed up may help settle a minorly upset stomach. However, if the vomiting continues for more than a day, or she shows other signs of being ill, then it is best to bring her into your vet.
