Hopefully by now your kitty isn't throwing up anymore. I don't think it's that uncommon for cats to throw up. Maybe he's just trying to get rid of a hairball. More likely though, he's just adjusting to his environment and new happy home. I wouldn't worry. One of my cats throws up a couple times a week right after he eats. He's fine otherwise and runs and plays. I think he just either eats too fast or gets overly excited.
Good luck with your two new babies!!!!!!!

I have a 4 year old Siamese male that often throws up when he eats too much too fast. We have 2 other cats and we have started to feed them a small amount at a time and he seldom does it now. Maybe the kitten is just eating too quickly. Also, are you giving them kitten food? Good luck and enjoy them.

My kitten I got named mnm who is probly less then 2 mounths old, throws up every time he gets done licking my long haired cat. Don't know if that helps, thats just why mine throws up. If he can play & stuff like that, I don't think he is sick, just eating something his body dosen't want him to eat. Or licking him self to much.
