One of my cats has a high twitch factor, but she is not elderly like your cat.
MewMew is only 3 but twitches like there are strings attached to her skin and it dances and jerks around.
I also feed my cats Blue, one of mine is allergic to regular dry food and would almost scratch herself silly when eating a grain based food. I can tell you that I did research on the internet to add some wet canned food to her diet and got lucky and found one without grain. If you need a grain free canned food, I can send you a note with the brand.
With an elderly cat losing weight, maybe the twitch factor is more noticeable. I have never seen seizures but I would think that the cat would be lying on the floor during them. I am not a vet though and it is a very interesting problem with your cat. I do hope you will come back and tell us what the vet says. Like I said, I am just a regular person, but if a cat is still pooping and drinking and bringing her babies to you, then it might just be something that occurs during older ages of cats.
