Fainting Goat Kittens

Charlie and Spike are two very cute kittens that are normal in all respect, except when they hear a sudden noise:

at the slightest sound, the kittens respond by collapsing and falling into a rigid paralysis which lasts about a minute before they return to normal. This condition has hardly ever before been diagnosed in a cat, is rarely found in dogs and is more common in goats.

See a video clip of the fainting goat kittens over at VideoSift: Link

those kittens do not look happy. they can't explore or behave like normal cats and must hurt from falling down so much.

ifthey are suffering( and it looks like it to me) then...

The kittens are adorable. I want to adopt them.

I'd say a tranquil and possibly carpeted home would be better than being killed. I don't know how much falling would hurt them. My cat used to lie down by deliberately falling on her side.

My condolences for Spike, if the owner sees this.

That has got to be one of the saddest things I've seen on here! Really, lady, get those kittens on carpet. And get them some earplugs.

Seriously, though, would they be better off if they were surgically made deaf?

@wes: constantly doing face plants, even from 4", cannot be much fun. You can tell that those kittens are anxious and intimidated about standing up and walking. It looks like an extremely unpleasant situation. I wouldn't wish it on anyone -- except maybe someone who thinks that physical disabilities are funny.

"Hey what's this?" tap "AH!" *skitzz fall over*

hahahah... Ah, poor kitties so funny. Those cats seem totally fine to me. They're definitely not being injured by their tumbles.
