I thought my cat was having seizures one night (I took this video to show the vets) and jumped onto Youtube to see if I could find another cat doing something similar to find out what was happening. I figured it was seizures and raced him to the vet. (middle of the night of course...)Vets didn't know what had happened to him, and he was pretty unresponsive and seemed 'brain dead' still by day 3 after the incident. I was pretty sure he was 'gone' but took him to my regular vet from the emergency ER vet on Tuesday. Thank god knew what was wrong and told me about Vestibular Disorder! He recovered pretty well, and now, about 7 months later, he still has the 'head tilt' but otherwise gets around just fine. I am posting this because I wish I had seen a video like this for myself when this happened to help discern FVD from a seizure. I even found another cat doing almost the same thing, and they thought it was seizuring too.... Here's a site with a decent explanation of what happens with this disorder. http://www.cathealth.com/vestibular.htm
My cat had a VERY severe attack of this and others cases may not be as severe, but this example is a severe, extreme example of what your cat may go through. Don't put him/her to sleep if this is what they have! They can live a normal life, and will be just fine! Rylei's new nickname is 'Tilt'......
