Q. Smokey is throwing up 2or3 times daily. Scaly places on him. His fur doesn't look healthy

A. This is very suspicious of a mite problem, such as scabies or demodexx mites. Due to the potential zoonosis (contagious to people) of scabies I would highly recommend you take kitty to a vet to get the skin tested.
I am not sure how the vomiting plays a role here because it is not a common sequela of mites however it should be looked into with a thorough exam or your cat and treated to help keep your kitty from getting dehydrated and causing damage to his esophagus from the acid in the vomitus.
