    Has your cat been diagnosed with epilepsy? My understanding is that focal aware seizures are related to epilepsy, that's why I ask. Now a cat coming to a human and then darting away does not seem in the least bit strange to me, that's just a cat being a cat, so I'm wondering if there's more to the story here, and I'm guessing there is. If you could elaborate, that would be good.

    Yes she had epilepsy since 2011. But now she has aware focal seizure after showing the videos. It looks like she winces in pain before darting but it seems not cause I took out treats she ate but today this happen for almost an hour. With thise face looking like winces then back to normal.

    I wish to go to er vet but i dont drive and er charges alot. I am trying to figure out if cbd oil is ok or safe

    Now it seems she has a slight face twitches not bad bad just it's weird but she seems normal still acts like a spoiled noisy slamming cabnit cat.

    I hope that is a good sign

    Have you discussed the use of CBD oil with your Vet? I know in humans it is being used for seizures, and know people have used it on their cats for cancer and pain relief, but I personally wouldn't use it without discussing with my Vet first. A simple phone call to them should be enough to get your answer. (Of course, they probably aren't in today, depending on where you're located)

    Our Vet wasn't against it for our Kidney Cat just on general premise, but she said she couldn't actually recommend it because of "state laws". That was a few years ago though. Sometimes you just have to read between the lines:wink:
