Recent research conducted at the University College London School of Pharmacy reveals that certain high-pitched noises — including jangling keys or crinkling tin foil — can cause seizures in cats.
The researchers have dubbed the susceptibility to audio-induced seizures the “Tom and Jerry Syndrome” because the cartoon cat Tom has a strong startle reaction to noises. The scientific name for the syndrome is feline audiogenic reflex seizures (FARS).
