No, the title is not a joke. We never heard of myotonia congenita, or fainting goat syndrome, in cats. It's rare in dogs and cats.
The kittens can walk but cannot run or jump - and we assume they can not play. At the slightest sound, they fall over in a rigid paralysis which lasts about a minute.
The cuties in this video are Charlie and Spike (black and white). Sadly, Spike died today from respiratory failure.
We are incensed that YouTube comments had to be disabled for this video because of insensitive comments. That is one thing we dislike about many web sites, the quality of a number of the comments. The ability to be nasty seems to outweigh common sense for too many. This makes us even prouder of the pet blogging community, which is known for uplifting and supporting one another.

To Charlie and Spike's human: If you ever run across this post, we'd like you to know how sad we are for you loss.
And thank you, Evelyn, for introducing us. We know you have a great heart for kitties with a disability.
