I have a 9 year old male orange tabby named Tigger. This morning at about 5am, I woke up to see that Tigger had kicked me off my piilow and was sleeping there. I petted him, but this time he didn't wake up. Very odd!! Everytime I touch him when he sleeps, he usually wakes up even just for a sec. But this time I shook him a few times quite hard and called his name and he wouldn't wake up. He was very limp, heavy, and "flat" feeling. I got really nervous and shook him a couple more times. Then he slowly lifted his head and meowed as if saying "WHAT?! Can't you see I was sleeping?". Has your cat ever freaked you out like that while in a deep sleep? I hope this isn't a sign of something serious or is it just a normal thing and that I just noticed it? I had that wave of heat (shock, anxiety, fear) go over my face when he wasn't waking up lol. It was a huge relief when he did wake up. I'm assuming he's just fine cuz when I woke back up about 2 hours later to get ready for work, he followed me to the bathroom like his usual routine.
