  • The best thing you can do to help him next time is to not let next time happen. Cats don't have seizures without a reason; it may be a symptom of a deeper problem. If you are a first-time cat owner, and not familiar with how cats hack up their hairballs, seeing a cat doing so might well look as if it were choking. If the cat was hacking and "choking" and then fine, that's probably what it was (even if you never saw a hairball). There's no need to do anything while the cat is coughing up the hairball. You can help reduce or even eliminate hairballs with special diets or diet supplements. Check with your veterinarian for the best to use for your pet. If your cat actually had a seizure, he probably would have been a bit dazed or confused at least briefly afterward, and you should have him examined by the vet. If your cat has another seizure, the best thing to do is leave him alone. You're more likely to hurt him (or be hurt!) than to help him. Observe the cat during and immediately after the seizure so you can report the details to the vet, and have him examined as soon as possible so the vet can try to determine the cause.
  • Take your cat to a vet if you notice any unusual behaviors or symptoms.
  • when my cat had a seizure we took her to the vet and found out she had feline leukemia. take your kitty to the vet
  • My cat has cancer and has started having seizures. I suggest that you take him to your vet to identify whether or not he has an illness that is causing the seizures. Secondly, when our cat has a seizure we just allow her to have it, in a soft voice I talk to her. When it is completely over I try to gently pet her to let her know that I am here.
