Cat Warns Owner of Impending Epileptic Seizure.

Michael Edmonds suffers from epilepsy and can have seizures without warning. One day, he noticed that his cat Tee Cee would sit close to him and stare at his face right before an impending seizure:

We noticed that Tee Cee began staring at my step-father prior to a seizure and then ran to my mother to let her know all is not well, acting as an early warning system.

"Once assistance arrives, Tee Cee doesn't leave Michael's side until he regains consciousness and his warnings have proved invaluable to the family."

Tee Cee has now been nominated as a Rescue Cat of the Year for his ability to warn Michael of impending seizures!

Over the years there have been several animals in the news who could tell when seizures were imminent; the curiosity is how does the animal know when no one else does?

Jodi Picoult writes about this in one of her books. Her character has a service dog used to predict his seizures so he can get to a safer place.

I wish my cats did something useful like this. All they do is eat, sleep, shit, and bite at my feet when I try to play around with them.
