Mtly cat has been vomiting at night only, for the past three

This answer was rated:

Mtly cat has been vomiting at night only, for the past three nights. We've kept her off food or water today for 5 hours like we read to, to settle her stomach and still nothing.. what can I do?! I can't afford tablets or something from the vet right now...
Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. Hopefully it didn't make a mess. Did the cat eat anything unusual?
Customer: Well she had cat biscuits which I'm guessing may have been gone off. That was my guess as she started after eating them. But hasn't stopped for three nights since
Assistant: What is the cat's name and age?
Customer: Her name is***** was a stray we took in five years ago, I'm guessing about 6
Assistant: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Marie?
Customer: I don't think so, she gets hairballs now and then but that's it... This has been only at Nights when were in bed never during the day..

Also she has vomited several times in one night, mostly it's never anything as she hasn't eaten much since
