Default Kitten Shiver/Tremors while falling asleep

I think I finally figured out why he was shivering!!! The same week
that he started shivering is when he got his booster shot and I also
changed his food. He was previously eating the Royal Canin Kitten
formula but I changed him to the Wellness Kitten Super5 mix as it is a
better quality food. Well, I had a brainwave and thought maybe
there's something in the Wellness food that he's allergic to and is
causing the shiver. I therefore switched him back to the Royal Canin
to test out my theory....

It has been 6 days now and I have not seen one single shiver!!!! I'm
keeping my fingers crossed that this is what the problem was.

Has anyone every heard of a allergy symptom being a shiver? I can
only assume that if the food wasn't agreeing with him it was causing
his body distress/pain and this resulted in the shiver. Weird thing
is that his poop seemed fine and he never vomited. Poor little guy.
All seems well now though... I'll continue to monitor him.

If he shivers again after eating the other food than it's the food for

I know it's been 7 years but I am currently experiencing the same issue with my 6 month kitten. She is shivering as if she is cold when she is about to fall asleep. In general she is very playful, has a good appetite and drinks plenty of water. She has all the vaccines, but the shivering started before she had those done. The thing is that I am feeding her with the same Royal Canin kitten formula along with other ones ; nutriscience, allo nature,etc. How did it work out for you? Once you stopped feeding him Wellness Mix he stopped shaking? Kind Regards and Thanks a lot.

He had his second booster vaccination last week, could this be a side
effect? He does not have this symptom when he is awake and appears to
be in good health (good appetite, plays well, purrs, drinks plenty of
water, and has no other noticeable behavioural change since the
shivering began).

Does anyone have any ideas why he's shivering? Could it be just a
natural phase of sleep or something more serious?
