In a moment’s time, a sweet cat turns into an animal that’s hard to recognize. It may appear to hallucinate, chase things that aren’t there or exhibit symptoms of anxiety. The skin along its spine may twitch without the cat’s control.
Sound familiar? If your beloved kitty has ever exhibited these symptoms, it may be suffering from a condition called feline hyperesthesia, also known as twitchy cat syndrome. It’s a relatively uncommon condition, but when it occurs, it is upsetting to cat owners and potentially dangerous to the cat itself.
