Cat Nutritional Disorders

It is possible for cat nutritional disorders to affect the central nervous system:
  1. Low blood sugar - hypoglycemia - can lead to a "depressed level of consciousness" and seizures, possibly a coma. An overdose of insulin is one cause. See Feline Diabetes.
  2. Hypocalcemia - this means low blood calcium. The symptoms are like those described above.
  3. Thiamin deficiency - seizures and "when lifted up, cats often flex their necks, dropping chin to chest.."
Reference: Cat Owner's Home Veterinary Guide. See Symptoms of Feline Diabetes.
