It’s imperative that you know that no animals were hurt in the filming of this video, except for these two cute little kittens who were repeatedly shot with lasers.
Seriously, these kittens suffer from a rare disease called myotonia congenita, otherwise known as “fainting goat syndrome”.
At the slightest sound, the kittens respond by collapsing and falling into a rigid paralysis which lasts about a minute before they return to normal.
Before you get all worked up, that’s all that happened here. Someone filmed the kittens collapsing whenever anyone made the slightest noise. The lasers were edited in later.
