    Default Cute kittens with 'fainting goat' syndrome

    Faiting goat syndrome kittens - latimes.com

    What's cuter than two kittens playing together? How about two kittens playing together and fainting together. Yep, these kittens have what we call 'fainting goat' syndrome...

    [YOUTUBE]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9CC_9aFuEkA&feature=player_embedded[/YOUTUBE]

    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. thanks for all the kind messages. comments enabled once again as duplicate videos are appearing. this is the original

    finally- the music on this clip is Jeanne Newhall - Theme from "The Year of Living Dangerously"
    track: French Cafe - available from amazon

    That's so sad. "At the slightest sound.....", Jebus, those poor things
    don't/didn't stand a chance. How terribly tiring it must be to keep
    falling down all the time.

    That is just sad. Poor darlings. I wonder if the other one can live a normal life span?

    Aw, bummer about Spike. He was the cutest one. Never heard of this in cats either.

    OMG! That is so sad! I can't see the other one living long with that condition. They acted funny even when they were slowly walking. Almost as if they were in pain.

    That was not cute at all. It looked painful and it was very sad. Them dying didn't help my mood, either.

    Aww...I didn't think that other kitty would live long. Very sad. But I am glad they are not suffering.
