Angry Marching In Place

cat after marching in place
There have been several occasions where I have been laying in bed, watching TV, or just sitting around with friends, when my cat has gone to a soft object in the room and started marching in place on it.
It is not the soft happy little knead like thing when they are on your lap and purring and massaging a blanket. My kitty cat's pupils are quite large and he often looks at me and meows in a desperate manic way. This can go on for 20 minutes before he settles in, usually with his back towards me but his ears pointed in my direction.
I have done countless searches on the internet about this and no one seems to have a definitive answer. I am not really scared that he will snap and attack the family or think his health is danger, I just would like to know what the hell my cat is doing.
