If you happen to have a cat, you've probably seen it suddenly stop in the middle of whatever it was doing and just weirdly freeze for a second, then immediately jump straight up into the air and take off running like a hellhound was after them.
For most cats, that's just playing around, but for some others, it is called Hyperesthesia syndrome.
It can actually make them go a little bit crazy. It is a condition that affects a cat's behavior and can cause some serious frustration to its parents. Let's hear about Karen and Jack's experience with Sansa, the cat.
Karen's story was love at first sight. She first spotted the beautiful Sansa hiding under a bed outside a Petco store in Manhattan. She was blown away by her beautiful white fur and her gorgeous unique looking eyes. That's when she knew she had to take her home.
HELLO FURRIENDS!!! 😻 I am back! Mommy is so sorry that we have disappeared for such a long time. She has been really busy and exhausted with work even on weekends, and whenever she came home, she'd have dinner and pass out around 9PM! She has not taken a picture of me for such a long time!! 🙀 She is all done with the summer camp now and spent the day with me today 😽💕👸🏼💃🏼 Needless to say, I was ready to pose like a meowdel once she whipped out her phone today!! 😸✨ We've missed you all, but we are back! Thank you for being patient and for not unfollowing us! We can't wait to catch up with all of you! ❤️💖
Once Sansa was finally settled at home, Karen and Jack started noticing a number of strange behaviors and wanted to desperately help her in any way possible.
Karen says that Sansa's odd behaviors resulted from the cat attacking itself or when she would charge at Jack and Karen when they try to stop her from hurting herself.
We are absolutely heartbroken that our dear sweet furriend Frankie from @life_ofmittens got her wings and crossed the rainbow bridge last night. She was a strong, brave fighter who battled cancer till the very end. Rest In Peace, sweet angel. You will be dearly missed. ❤️🌈🌹 Furriends, please show Frankie's meowmy some love and support in this devastating time. 💐 Frankie and Sansa were sick around the same time, and Frankie's meowmy was so incredibly supportive to us when our world turned upside down. I wish there was something more we could do to comfort her right now. 😿 #RIPFrankie #purrsforfrankie #weloveyoufrankie
They figured afterwards that the best way to prevent these incidents is to distract the cat with its favorite toys.
Karen and Jack sought help in every way possible. They took her to a vet who prescribed her Thiamine and Fish Oil and they also went to a pet guru who believed that predigested food is the best alternative if given with Probiotics.
The couple's love for Sansa gave them so much faith and taught them not to give up.
They even became spokespeople and made a lot of efforts to persuade anyone who was afraid of adopting cats with feline hyperesthesia syndrome.
Adopting a cat in need is one of the best things you can do for an animal. Check out this family who adopted the runt of a cat litter and it surprised them when it turned into this incredibly majestic feline.
