Fainting Kittens

"charlie and spike are two kittens with myotonia congenita, otherwise known as 'fainting goat' syndrome. at the slightest sound, the kittens respond by collapsing and falling into a rigid paralysis which lasts about a minute before they return to normal. This condition has hardly ever before been diagnosed in a cat, is rarely found in dogs and is more common in goats. The kittens are able to walk, but they cannot run or jump. aside from this they are normal. sad to report that the black and white kitten (spike) died on 27th october from respiratory failure."

From Pappy O' Daniel.


  1. This should come with a tissue warning. That is so sad.

  2. R.S., it should! Poor little things.

  3. The video made me laugh at first, but then so sad......
