Maybe its because my cat recently had a grandmal seziure, but could it have been a mild one? They asked me while I was at the vet with him if I ever saw him sitting there staring seeminly unconciouse.
Sorry if I scared you, but, it could be a possibilty, no?
Here is an exceprt from the following site http://home.stny.rr.com/carmon/seizures.htm
"Please note that there is an incredibly wide range of symptoms associated with seizures. Generalized convulsions are rare in cats. More common is the "partial complex seizure," which involves an "altered consciousness" and can involve anything from a lack of motion to bizarre behavior such as attacking invisible objects or frantic running and collisions with objects (yes, I know your cat does this normally, this is why it's difficult to diagnose). The major indication that unusual behavior is being caused by a seizure is the presence of "features typical of seizure activity such as facial twitching, salivation, or progression to generalized seizure." (Parent and Quesnel, 1996)"
