A spontaneous epileptic model of cats has not been described previously. Recently, we identified familial epileptic cats and investigated their clinical features. These epileptic cats are healthy except for the presence of recurrent seizures that are typically a focal limbic seizure with secondary generalization. Furthermore, generalized seizures were induced by vestibular stimulation in some cats. This spontaneous epileptic cat strain may be a valuable model for idiopathic/genetic epilepsy.
