charlie and spike are two kittens with myotonia congenita, otherwise known as 'fainting goat' syndrome. at the slightest sound or movement, the kittens respond by collapsing and falling into a rigid paralysis which lasts about a minute before they return to normal.If a pin drops they drop too. This condition has hardly ever before been diagnosed in a cat, is rarely found in dogs and is more common in goats. The kittens are able to walk, but they cannot run or jump. aside from this they are normal.
NOW GET A LOAD OF THIS...

You should all try this. It's not cruel at all, I had it set on stun.
On the serious side of things, for their short lives. these kittens suffered from something called myotonia congenita. There's info about the condition on the web if you want to look it up. I understand now that sadly, both the animals in this video have since died. I didn't know this when I made the video.
