I have gone thru this with my female Kaya - it happens periodically and always at night. To me it almost seems like a 'panic attack' - she'll be fine, even sleeping, but then she'll get up with the very worried look on her face and frantically start licking everything, and if I let her outside she will devour grass like crazy and then vomit. Once she has gotten sick, she will settle down again, and often have another 'attack' a while later but she is fine by morning. I discussed it with my vet and he suggested that it could be stress related -Kaya is a worrier, anything 'out of place' makes her worry, and if it moves it is scarey, if it is new- she will approach with extreme caution. I have yet to figure out the stressors or been able to pinpoint a specific event that causes this reaction.
