Never have seen this before in my cat.

by Laura

My female cat has something strange going on with her. Everytime she licks her jaw quivers. This is the first time we have seen anything like this happen. Any insight? It will be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

Answer from Kate
umm does sound rather odd and I must admit I have not seen it before. All i can suggest is that she may have a wobbly or sore tooth which is making her do this after she licks.

Perhaps if it continues you may want to take her to the vets to have her teeth checked out.

I have just had another thought, sometimes when cats fall they land on their face and so I wonder if this may have happened and she has damaged her jaw. Hopefully not, just keep an eye on her and see if this goes away or continues.

Hope she is Ok

best wishes Kate

Hi Kate!

Thank you so much for your response. We have been keeping an eye on Shakyra and it looks like everything is a-ok. I was telling my husband about what you said and he said that she isn't too graceful! Ha! She is acting normal and eating and drinking again. If it does come back I will take her to her "favorite" place! :)
