Try getting Purina One "Sensitive" Stomach / Digestive (I forget which title it is, but it's a light blue bag). Our oldest boy kitty (about 9 y/o) has terrible bouts of vomiting too sometimes - which can be brought on by what he eats (type of food), hairballs, and his body aging. Our vet said if we can't get him to eat the Science Diet stuff they recommend to use the Purina One Sensitive food, and give him a 1/4 can of moist food. The dry helps keep his teeth strong and healthy, but the moist food assures his body gets fluids (cats are known for not drinking a lot of water unless they are ill), and occasional "cat" treats (3 or 4 pieces instead of the suggested package amount) in a variety of flavors. Start with the small packages though, as some flavors and/or types can cause kitty to get sick also.

Good Luck, and good to read you discovered the cat food issue!
