I see it happening now, I dont know if it happend since
Hes purely dreaming :]
Edit: yes its just dreaming lol, its only a bad article if he stops eat/stops going to the bathroom. :]
My kitten pretends to eat in her sleep, its so funny lol
If you are truly concerned you can try calmly touching the hind legs, hips or back to see if there is sensetivity or niggle. Also examine for bug bites, animal bites, or scratches. Anything funny like that I would go to the Vet.
add me 2 ur contacts k,
"Twitches of the limbs during REM sleep contained by adult mammals result from descending motor activation from the brainstem." http://cat.inist.fr/?aModele=afficheN&cp... Maybe that's what happens with animals, too.
no he's just dreaming or chasing mice
This is inborn for a cat to do while restind or sleeping, I have seen many useless visit to me at the vets office for that. He is having a dream in the region of chasing something or other things. It would only be bad if he be noit eating or going to the bathroom.!
My cat does this to It's unexpected just dreaming so cute
