Snoring Cat??

Hello everyone

Tiger is sleeping right next to me on the couch and he is snoring, I mean is not loud but I can hear it, is this something I should worry about?
From time to time he moves his paws rapidly and then wakes up, is he dreaming? Can they dream? I think they can, last night his whiskers were moving up and down while he sounded like a pup crying but softer.
Do you have any experiences??

Thanks!

Maria

I have seen most of my animals dream; the kitties, the dog AND my horse!
As a matter of fact, my older horse was laying down and twitching, I dropped the wheelbarrow, hollered at him and ran towards him. When I reached the poles of his corral and made them rattle as I tried to quickly crawl through, he startled awake and gave me SUCH a disgusted look for disturbing his sleep...
I'll tell you though, I almost had a heart attack and was already crying, thinking he was having seizures.

The dog would dream and I've seen the kitties dream. Shadow is the only kitty I have that snores. Unless kitty has trouble breathing while awake, I don't think it is anything to worry about.

They sure keep us guessing and worried, don't they?

Your horse? OMG that is too funny, I can't believe you were creeping up on him haha,!
Tiger breaths fine but right now he is up to no good, what is new? hehe.

Yeah I worry about him very much, he is my boy!

My sister has a dog that sleeps on his back and snores like a buzz-saw.
It does sound like Tiger was dreaming - maybe he was in a field full of mice

Toby snores like a pig when he is sleeping. Perfectly normal. And dreams too

My goodness. My mother's cats, the chronically-congested Persians, snore louder than any person I've heard. Last summer when I was living with my mum, she went away for a weekend so the cats camped out in my room (they're usually stuck to her like glue, but I guess I'll do in an emergency ). In the middle of the night I woke up to complete silence and my first thought was that the darn cats had gone into respiratory arrest and were dead. Well, Princess had just gone to the litterbox and Llewellyn was having a midnight snack, but I'd gotten so used to the sound of them snoring that the quiet woke me up.

My poor mum. She got divorced from my dad almost ten years ago, who snored like crazy (not why they split, of course) and ended up getting two cats that snore like crazy.

Oh, no. I wasn't sneaking up on him at all. I ntoiced him laying down and when I saw him twitching, I called his name.
He didn't respond. Just kept laying there, twitching, so I yelled louder.
He STILL didn't resopond.
That is when I dropped the wheelbarrow and ran towards him, calling his name and sobbing. When I hit the panels of his corral, they rattled and that woke him up.
Crazy horse.

Cooper snores and has what seems like some pretty intense dreams sometimes. I remember one time in particular. He was sleeping and I went over to pick him up. I put my hands under him to lift him and I guess he was dreaming that something was attacking him. He went nuts on me and gave me a REALLY good scratch on my arm. The scar is still quite noticeable.

Arianwen sometimes snores softly, but I like it because it means she's completely relaxed and feels safe.
If Arianwen is having what seems to be a scary dream where she's struggling and crying out in her sleep, I pet her very gently and very softly tell her she's safe. She wakes up then and starts purring very loudly and sometimes she'll hold my hand and start grooming me.
Poor baby, she must've had a hard life in her past.

Or a field full of broccoli, he likes to sleep on his back sticking out his front paws in the air, he doesn't snore when adopting this position though.
buzz saw? hahaha
