Is cat puke just a fact of life? [+]

My beast is around 6 or 7 (she was a young stray but not a kitten when I got her 5 years ago).
I feed her Avoderm once a day, and I brush her coat a few times a week. She still pukes from time to time - maybe as much as once a week. This isn't the end of the world, but we have recently moved in with a roommate, and reducing the likelihood is therefore quite desirable. Any advice?
Can cats be trained to puke in the litterbox, for instance? When I hear her making the high pitched whine-meow that usually precedes the action, I try to transfer her, but I think she is too overcome by the abdominal spasms to take this on as a habit...
