Teddy was laying behind my head when I started hearing clicking noise. I put my ear up against him and he's the one making it! What would cause it, can cats grind their teeth?

Tony grinds his teeth. I posted a question about this a while ago, but no one answered. :( So I'm wondering too, is it a problem? Anything I can do to get Tony to stop?

Cats *can* grind their teeth. Sometimes this is due to tummy pain; they also get a condition similar to TMJ, and of course a toothache could cause it too. I'd have them checked out by the vet.

Cheers,

he DID get in toothpaste the other day, but not much. He was foaming in the mouth but I managed to get it washed out(my poor arms). But this was maybe a week ago, could it have caused a long-term affect? 8O He was acting completely fine after I washed him off, besides the fact from being wet, so I didn't go to the vet.

I thought I'd had, his ears are driving him nuts too, but I can't find any sign of ear mites

Sometimes my kitties make chattering noises while they sleep. I've always assumed that they are dreaming about a particularly tasty bird since it is the same sound they make while "hunting".
