My cat twitches in his sleep, he’s not sure if he’s dreaming or not. I think he knows he’s dreaming because he is having nightmares, but he doesn’t know he is. He has been like this for the past 6 years. I think he will always be like this. When he does not seem to be in a dream or nightmare, he twitches a lot. He’s usually not in a bad dream though. He can usually get up and run and play if he wants, but sometimes he will have a bad dream and twitch a few times. I’ve tried all sorts of medicines and natural remedies with no success. He’s on an antiseizure medication, and he’s even started a very small dose of Ritalin. I’ve had him for a long time, and his twitches have gotten worse, so he’s on the meds now, hoping that that will make him more relaxed. He’s a very cute, loving boy. He’s been through so much, but he is still very loving and affectionate. I would love to know what this twitching means. I love my cat, but I’m not sure I love him anymore. If he’s going to live the rest of his life with twitches, I’m ok with that. What are your thoughts?


Dear CatDreams,

We’ll start by asking you to expln what the twitching looks like. In addition, can you describe your cat’s emotional state before, during, and after the twitching episodes?

We’ll then ask you to answer the following questions:

1. Do you have a diagnosis or theory that might expln your cat’s twitching?

2. Is there a known syndrome or medical condition that might be related to your cat’s twitching?

3. Does your cat have any medical conditions, symptoms, or treatments that could expln his twitching?

4. If so, what are they?

In addition, what is your cat’s family history? What is your cat’s age, sex, and breed? How much does he weigh? What kind of environment does he live in?

Are there any other pets in your cat’s home? Does he have any physical abnormalities that might be causing his twitching?

Please keep in mind that all the information you share here will remn confidential and will not be shared with anyone, including other Catster users.

We’ll also ask you to tell us what medications your cat has been taking, including the name, dose, and frequency. We also want to know the amount of time between the last dose of medication and the twitching episode.

If your cat had any surgeries or vaccinations within the past six months, we’ll ask you to describe the procedure or vaccination in detl.

Please keep in mind that we will not share any private medical information with any third-party organizations. We would be happy to provide you with an update if we learn more about your cat’s twitching, but we won’t give out any medical information.

I’m afrd that I don’t know all that much about this twitching. I don’t know what he’s experiencing. I’ve only had him for a year and a half. I’m sure he must be going through something. I don’t know what. I’m not sure what he’s dreaming about. The only thing I know about is that he twitches. Sometimes he twitches a lot and sometimes he twitches a little bit. I do know he has bad dreams sometimes and he doesn’t like to be held, so that’s what I think is happening in his dream. But I don’t know if he dreams about things in his day. I have no idea. He doesn’t go to the vet because I’ve been taking him to the vet when he’s really sick and he’s been to the vet quite a few times. His last time was a month ago. They gave him an antibiotic and he was much better. But he was still acting sick a lot. His twitching seemed to get worse the past month.


Dear CatDreams,

I think your cat has a problem with sleeping. If his insomnia is causing his twitching episodes, this would be a good time to consult your vet for some advice on how to help your cat sleep better.

I’m not sure what is causing your cat’s twitching episodes. Some cats twitch because of stress, others may have stress-induced twitching episodes. If your cat’s twitching episodes happen at night, it could be due to stress. Stress will cause some cats to twitch their ears and tl, and others will twitch their legs or paws. But, there are many other things that can cause twitching, including anxiety, fear, excitement, frustration, or even physical problems such as infections, seizures, or a neurological disorder.

Does your cat’s twitching involve his ears, tl, or legs? Are the twitching episodes happening more often? Do you know why he’s twitching?

I would recommend that you and your cat see his vet immediately to discuss the reasons your cat is twitching and what you could do to help his condition. If there is any medical problem causing your cat’s twitching, it is essential that you and your vet know about it.

I’m sorry that I don’t know more about your cat’s twitching. This is why I asked you to include your cat’s age, breed, sex, weight, and type of environment. These factors can all help us narrow down the medical conditions that might be causing your cat’s twitching.

What kind of medications is your cat taking?
