I noticed this in the past 3 days. Nothing else has changed about his behavior, maybe he's become a little more quiet than usual but I wouldn't say it's a significant change. Usually around the same time in the evening in the past 3 days, I notice him twitching and kinda convulsing while laying on his back. I say convulsing because it's almost a rhythmic contraction of all of his muscles and then back to relaxed in a few second intervals. He doesn't act like it bothers him at all and acts completely normal while he is twitching, if I talk to him he looks at me and as soon as I get a toy he comes running after it as if nothing is going on. As soon as he starts moving you can't see the twitch, it's only apparent when he is laying on his back with his paws in the air, and during that time you can see his paws going slightly back and forth and when I put my hand on his stomach I can feel muscles contracting and relaxing...Does anyone know what might be going on? I haven't seen anything wrong he still runs after the laser toy like crazy- and part of my effort to get him to lose some weight has been to play with the laser toy a lot. He runs after it for like an hour it's insane and never gets bored of it...So I'm hoping this behavior doesn't indicate any sort of illness...but I'll be watching very closely for any type of signs of illness. Any comments or suggestions would be greatly appreciated ..
