AUDIO: Household noises giving cats ‘fits’

The sound of someone hammering, a newspaper rustling and a can opening may be annoying to humans.

But vets warn that some cats can get so upset by these and other household noises that they suffer seizures as a result.

Vet Mark Lowrie, from the Davies Veterinary Specialists is investigating the seizures with researchers.

He told BBC Radio 5 live’s Breakfast: “Usually they’re fairly benign and not really something that would cause death… but that doesn’t stop it being a very upsetting event.”
