My cat has been twitching quite a bit lately. She doesn't seem to be ichy or licking. Its just twitching. Just a little concerned because she never did that before and now it happens all the time when she lays on me. People can't see it but i can feel when she does it. She is 12 yrs old and siamese.

  • Have you looked at the other questions here about twitching cats? How does your cat's behavior differ from those? What does the vet say?

First of all, get your cat to a vet and be sure to do bloodwork. There are very many conditions that can cause that. Siamese cats are predisposed to a lot of conditions, and with a cat over 10 I'd go for bi-annual checkups regardless.

If it's not health-related, it might be overstimulation (for example, when you pet your cat too much at a time and she starts feeling uncomfortable because of it) or pent up energy (then you should play with her more).
