Default Lynxie sometimes meows in his sleep when I sneeze


When I sneeze, and Lynxie's in deep sleep, he sometimes meows in his
sleep. The first time, I thought it might have been a coincidence
because I couldn't see how a sneeze could induce a sleep-meow, but now
that it's happened numerous times I must wonder...

Anyone else have cats that do this? It's a really strange meow, too,
sorta a cross between a trill and a meow. Of course, I encourage such
cute behavior. }

Hi Z!

Several of my cats will do this, in particular Sasquatch and Bear - but only
if my hubby sneezes. I guess I don't rate as much attention here!

Chablis twiches in her sleep... I assume she's chasing mice in her REM
sleep world. At first, it suprised me, now I just chuckle, knowing she just
got a big one.

Stinky makes the cutest little noises in his sleep, especially if I
scritch him. But never saw him react to sneezes except when awake.
When he was a little feller, he used to try to look in my mouth to see
where in tarnation that noise came from.

I suspect he's simply saying "Don't bother me, I'm sleeping!"

Mine either run away (or look like they're about to), or glare at me.
So sympathetic.

Nikki often reacts to my coughing or sneezing, though I can't remember
now if she's done it when asleep. When I cough, she answers with a
cough-like sound. It's so cute. I think she thinks it means something,
and tries to agree with me. ;o)
