My cat likes to sleep right under the heater in my bedroom. I woke up at 3:30 this morning to the sound of her hitting her head violently against the heater. She was having a seizure in her sleep. I am a pretty heavy sleeper but the sound of her whole body slamming into the heater was so loud that it woke me up, and continued for at least a minute. At the end of it, she ran into my bed, which woke her up. She is almost 5 and she has had 2 other seizures that I know about, but the last one was over a year ago.
There are vets in my area but it is hard to get her in. I do not have a car anymore, and the last time I tried to put her in a cat carrier was another one of the times she had a seizure. So I do not want to take her in unless there is something I should be worried about. She did hit her head pretty hard but seemed fine after.
Should I be worried? What causes/helps seizures? Any help or information is very much appreciated. Thanks in advance!
