My 6 year old Himalayan keeps throwing up his food. It looks like he just ate it and then threw it up whole. This happens once or twice a day. He acts fine other than that. He doesn't act sick. Sometimes he throws up hairballs, but I have him shaved down to prevent this. Any ideas what this might be? Thanks.

IF he is eating then vomiting immediately once or twice a day, he's definitely not fine even if he's not acting sick. Cats can conceal illness very well.
You need to take him to the vet right away.

Sometimes, especially with a cat who is prone to hairballs, a blockage can occur at the entrance to the stomach, the intestinal tract, or the bowels. Sometimes this is caused by something in the diet.Hairball Control Formula by Science Diet has been known to work. If it doesn't then the problem is probably not diet based.
