So here's my question: do cats normally twitch when they're in deep sleep? And I mean twitch! His little paws'll be going like crazy, his eyes are halfway open (just a moment ago, I thought one eye was looking at me, turns out, he was asleep and dreaming), and sometimes his whole face will spasm! The first time it happened I thought he was having some kind of epileptic fit!
This is my first time having a cat of my own, so I can't say I remember any other cat(s) that I've known being such a freaky sleeper-- and I've known plenty of cats! So far, it seems like "normal" sleep behavior to me (only seems to happen when he's in REM sleep), but every now and then it just freaks me the hell out and makes me think he should get a CAT scan. **oh, my god! CAT scan! hah!** Or an MRI or somethin'. I think I'm worrying for nothing, though.
