My cat used to throw up quite frequently, mostly hairballs but sometimes kibble too if eaten too fast, or the occasional piece of plastic that he'd eat. Now he is on a grain-free canned food and doesn't throw up anymore! I also brush him out frequently and make sure all plastic is completely out of his reach. The last time he threw up a hairball was over a month ago. I also thought it was fairly normal, that some cats just puke a lot (even though my other cat has never puked in her life) until I made the food switch and started brushing him and noticed immense improvement.
I have also noticed how cats MUST puke on carpet. Ganymede used to wake me up in the middle of the night, gagging in the middle of my carpeted hallway, and I would rush to him and set him on the hardwood kitchen floor and hold him there (struggling, of course, because the carpet is such a better place to puke). So glad I haven't had to do that in a long time.
