Is my cat dreaming?

When I watch her sometimes she is twitching and jerking when she is sleeping. Is something wrong with her, she is perfectly normal the rest of the time.

Indeed, dogs do this constantly. It is just dreaming. Dogs love to dream they are chasing cats. It is the funniest thing in the world to watch. I do not say cute much but I would have to say that is the only thing to describe watching dogs and cats sleep. It is priceless :)

Yes, I watch my cat sleep, especially if she is next to me. Sometimes she moves so much that she will actually wake me up as well.

Yeah, she's just dreaming. Lightning was sleeping on the bed once and suddenly started rolling around on his back. He was right behind me and freaked me out at first till I realized he was dreaming of rolling on the concrete pad outside that he loves to do alot.

I love it when my cat does stuff like this it just makes me think of how sweet she really is. I have even caught her from falling off the bed when she was sleeping and she woke up (like what's going on) LOL

Yeah my cat does that also and my dog too... sometimes they also make little noises. I do think they are dreaming when they do that! One time my cat was fast asleep, and he must have had a nightmare because he jerked awake and his eyes were all wild, and his jaw was dropped open like, "Huh?"

Yep, she's just dreaming :) I think it's really cute when my cats dreams, except when he's obviously having a bad dream. Mostly he just dreams about running and eating (he moves his little mouth and everything, hehe).

I wish I could tell the difference, between the dreams they are having, I can't even tell when they are disturbing or just getting a little more comfortable by rolling or moving.

Katy, my cat, does that. She will also start to meow and grumble in her sleep. The interesting thing that I find is that my cat snores when she sleeps sometimes. I find it comforting and funny at the same time. I have trouble falling asleep if she isn't on the bed.

That is so funny, to know that cat's snore I had heard a dog snore before. But cat's are known to be so quite anyway. Sorry, but if my animal snored that slept with me they would have to sleep in the other room.

Moomin - Moomin sound asleep dreaming of mice
My lovely cat Moomin dreams of catching mice and chasing birds. She will twitch and wriggle while she dreams, she's so funny sometimes too, when I know she is sleeping and dreaming.

I kind of figured that was what they where dreaming about. Because my cat is outside (on nice days) and always in a night. She is a little scaredy cat and would prefer to chase the bugs around. I don't know what she would do if she ever caught anything big.

My cat does that too. I think she is dreaming. Sometimes she whimpers and then I wake her up because I think she is having a nightmare.
