    I had a harrowing few minutes today as I cradled a beautiful black, white, grey and tabby kitten (young cat really) - called Laura - in what I thought were her ghastly dying moments.

    The dust having settled on the rather intensely unpleasant incident, and with the said complicatedly monochrome cat now walking around doing things normally, I am starting to deduce that what I witnessed was an epileptic fit.

    Has anyone else come across this in their own cats?

    When I was a child we had a hamster that was epileptic. I don't think it's unique to humans, I'd ask a vet (and keep her away from strobing lighting etc.).
