Aaww! Fainting kittens is the most adorable genetic deformity ever

This is like natural selection or something.

You may be familiar with that fainting goats video that went viral many many moons ago. It’s a condition called “congenital myotonia,” an aversion to loud sounds that makes the animal afflicted with it “faint.” And apparently kittens can get it. And look adorable doing so.

That is really freaking adorable. Kind of cruel (though the animals aren’t hurt by this), but adorable. As far as debilitating muscle diseases go, this one is hard to top. Unless you’re a huge fan of shingles.
