|My mom says I moan in my sleep also. It just started it in the last few months. She says it's almost like a stomach rumble, yet it's not coming from my stomach -- it's more from the throat, like you said, though it seems to come from deeper in the throat than most of my sounds (even my growl). She thought it must have something to do with stomach/intestinal problems I have, but really doesn't know for sure, and the vet couldn't say what it is.
I also have had episodes where I don't recognize my mom and dad and try to attack them, though mine were always when I was fully awake. The vet feels those episodes are seizures -- mine were brought on by stress and fear.
I don't know that my experiences are even similar to yours; it's just information for you to consider. Does your cat have any other symptoms of illness? Might she have some illness causing pain? Perhaps a checkup at the vet is in order, with also a discussion of the unusual sleep behavior.
added: At least try to watch her very closely for any other unusual signs that she might be ill or have something neurological going on. It may have just been a dream, but if you felt it was very odd for her and it was that distressing, please keep a close eye on her. You know what is not normal for her.
