Is stopping my cat from barfing hurting or helping her?

When she begins to heave, I thump her on the back and she swallows it. Is this going to hurt her? Should I stop?

It is probably vomiting up a hair ball. Let the cat get it out. Do NOT hit the cat. Brush it more often. (Or start brushing it if you don't already). You can get some hair ball remedy from a pet store. Talk with a sales person about which product would be best for your cat.

your cat is trying to get rid of something that is choking it. STOP hitting it.

Based off how that sounds, I'd think that could only be hurting her...
