Feline Hyperesthesia Episode

My cat having a hyperesthesia attack. Notice the rippling skin on the back, lip licking and darting around like something is chasing him.


  1. My cat has this and it’s heartbreaking to witness. When a fit comes on he yowls as if in pain, bites and licks himself as if he were flea bitten, and runs so frantically that he bashes himself on walls. I’ve worked hard to minimize his stress and the episodes are less frequent, but you can’t protect them from everything. Sorry to see your cat going through this.
