1. I found this page because of an incident with my cat last night. Sam, my 16 year old mix breed, stumbled a few times and then fell over. He also cried, as if frightened or upset. I held him for a moment and his limbs felt stiff. The entire incident, as frightening as it was, seemed to pass quickly. He was back to normal within fifteen minutes. He had a similar incident about eight or nine years ago – same symptoms and same short duration.

    It sounds like what you’ve described here, so we’ll keep an eye out for any further symptoms. Thanks for laying out everything so neatly and understandably on this page.

  2. Hi there,
    This is very informative post indeed. Thank you so much.
    I would like to ask about something as my cat experienced some of described symptoms. We straight anyway went to the vets and they suspecting this to be cat epilepsy but I am quite sceptical.
    My cat is about 3 year old. He is quite active cat and love his going outs. Today while he was laying on the bed, suddenly his eyes were going back and forth, from one side to another and then he tried to jump from the bed all fell over. He nearly fell over from the stairs. He lost balance for about 10 minutes and then came back to normal. This happened again later in the day but he had little milder symptoms but del disbalanced for little longer. Because be scratch one of his ears on the regular basis and I see sometimes that he drop his ear like half way showing little discomfort I would think this could be more like vestibular disease. We would like to get second opinion from the other vet as well. Also, his bloods came back perfectly normal and stool sample was OK as well. Physical examination did not shown any abnormalities as well.
    I would appreciate any advise please.

  3. My cat had a few seizures last night and now can’t walk straight. Other than that I don’t see anything else wrong. I thought it was a snake bite but I haven’t seen any bit Mark’s. I don’t have the money to take him to the vet. What can I do

    1. Home remedies can not stop a cat from having seizures. Still, what you can do is to remain calm, place your pet in a safe spot and make sure he is getting whatever he wants whenever he wants (to ease his discomfort).
