If he is throwing up a lot, or is sleeping a lot more than normal, he's sick. Just because there are no plants or chemicals visible does not mean that he might not have made himself sick by ingesting something. Cats are notorious for having allergic reactions to a lot of things you wouldn't think of as poisonous (garlic, lillies, a lot of plant and vegetation), so he might have ingested something you do not consider poison, but still is for him.
He needs to go to a vet immediately.

He could have fleas ! My Sassa has fleas! His eyes look very strange he is throwing up from excessively grooming & eating them & sleeping alot. Check out your kitty especially the butt area where they go 1st.

Eyes will look sunken in when they are dehydrated, which could easily be caused by fluid loss from vomiting. You will need to have your cat seen by a vet to find out what is causing the vomiting. Dehydration is a serious matter. If you pinch the skin lightly behind her neck and lift it up, the skin should snap back into place. But if it takes a few second to return or the skin stays up, these are dangerous clues. Regardless, vomiting is not normal and you should find out what is causing it before she has the chance to get worse.

Most cats vomit occasionally and almost all of them sleep all day, but the two things together are not good. Remember we aren't vets here and can't answer medical questions. If you're a kid, you need to go to your parents right now and tell them your cat is sick and needs to go to the doctor. Do chores, whatever, to pay for the vet bill. If you're not a kid, then your cat STILL needs to go to the vet for a proper diagnoses.
