Customer Question
Hello! I have a 3...
Hello! I have a 3 years old tabby. Overall she is in good health. Recently she has been waking up from a sound sleep in a panic hissing and spitting. I've had her since she was a baby. She has never been abused or mistreated. Could she be having a nightmare? Do cats have bad dreams? Should I take her to the vet? Overall she seem fine outside of the recent episodes.
