|Yes, after over a year of living here and never throwing up, Leo here started doing the exact same thing as your kitty, exactly twice a week. He showed no other signs of illness. When it lasted over a month I figured it couldn't be a hairball. We went to the vet, who suggested a special food. But I wanted to try slowing him down some first. For him, slowing him down has done the trick. Poor thing....I pretty much just can't give him his favorite flavors anymore. He gobbles them down too fast. But, he likes the other things he eats too. I also adjusted his meal times a bit so he wouldn't be so hungry and wouldn't be served as much at one time.
If I thought the food was the issue, I wouldn't have used the food the vet recommended. I would have researched how to do an "elimination diet" which means eliminating certain things one at a time until you find what in the food they are reacting to.
A trip to the vet is a good idea, of course.
