    Frank does this often and it is the cause of many nights of bad sleep. I joke that he sees the spirits of dead squirrels outside, but really I have no idea. I might have to look into the indigestion suggestion and maybe try that. Often I move into the living room and sleep on our beanbag bed because for some reason, Frank usually sleeps fine if I am in there.

    Also wanted to add that you are brave for watching American Horror Story at night. That show freaks me out.

    I not sure about this, but it could be the new food not agreeing with him, or maybe he's having nightmares and needs Mommy to snuggle him. Try going back to the old food, and see if it changes. Good luck hope you figure out what making him wake up.

    @Biogirl71, funny you mention sleeping in living rm. I'm thinking i'll do that this evening b/c he likes the couch very much and seems to sleep very soundly there. So, I'll try that plus will also be picking up a new bag of his former kibble and giving him a little home cooking that his brother eats as well.

    also, i just discovered American Horror and really enjoy it. I scare myself watching it many times!

    First of all, American Horror Story is amazing and I'm obsessed with it!

    Second, the paw licking is an anxiety thing. BE CAREFUL WITH LETTING HIM DO IT. My mom had a pup (chihuahua, not a bully) that got very bad anxiety and would lick her paws constantly. It became a huge issue because she'd lick them until they were raw. She was on all kinds of medication to heal them. Just a heads up.

    Maybe something has disturbed his trust in "the pack"? From what I read, as long as you're still pack leader, he shouldn't be anxious about too much because he'll trust you to handle it. Maybe he needs more reassurance in your dominance?

    Well it sounds as though he isn't reacting as well to his food then what you thought and maybe he is showing signs of upset and or allergy. Maybe once you switch him back to prior he will return to normal and get some sleep. Could be his way of telling you it isn't agreeing with him with getting up and not sleeping as well. His stomach making those sounds might be a reason of possibly his stomach being uncomfortable causing him to not be able to sleep. Just a thought

    For what it's worth. I use to watch Sylvia Browne (psychic) and she says if you think there is a spirit you are suppose to tell it to go to the other side because they are lost and perhaps they don't know they are dead. From what I've heard and read, animals and small children are better able to see spirits and that we all have the ability but because we don't exercise it fades as we grow older.

    This is why I only live in new houses. I don't think I could handle it.
