Your home could be a danger zone for your feline.
According to a new study, noises commonly heard around the house can cause seizures in cats, Live Science reports.
High-pitched sounds like crinkling foil, a metal spoon hitting a ceramic bowl or the tapping of a glass can trigger a phenomenon that's been dubbed "Tom and Jerry Syndrome," named for the cat in the cartoon who responds to sounds with sharp body movements. Published in the Journal of Feline Medicine and Surgery on April 27, the study investigated the seizures of 96 cats, including what types of seizure they had, how long they lasted and what appeared to trigger them.

A Texas woman was so proud of her "first bow kill" that she posted a photo of herself on Facebook with her prey – an orange and white cat dangling by his head from an arrow the smiling woman holds in her hands.
Even more shocking, the smiling woman in the photo is a veterinarian, and the cat she killed might have been her neighbors' pet – not a feral cat as she suggested. Dr. Kristen Lindsey's post has set off a storm of controversy, with many demanding that Lindsey be stripped of her vet's license and criminally charged for the cat's death.

The people taking care of this sweet 33-lb. cat aren't sure how she got so big, but they are looking to help her slim down, according to PressofAtlanticCity.com.
Sprinkles was discovered in a foreclosed home with ear mites, a flea infestation and an infection. She is now under the loving care of S.O.S. Sea Isle City Cats in New Jersey and is feeling better, but she still has some hurdles to overcome.
