My cat, every few hours has some sort of siezure. He falls

This answer was rated:

My cat, every few hours has some sort of siezure. He falls on his side and twitches uncontrollably, drools a lot and afterwards is really confused. Hes already had two today and I'm not sure what to do.
Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. Seizures always look scary. Let's get you talking to the Veterinarian. What is the cat's name?
Customer: Mufasa
Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Mufasa?
Customer: When he was 3 months old someone stepped on his head, the vet said it was some sort of brain damage, but he hasnt had any issues since the incident until now.

He needs to go to the ER asap

Viral infection, metabolic, central nervous problem all need to be ruled out

Could this be serious then? He's had two in the last two hours

Yes, seizures in the cat are always serious :(

I am hoping it is an infection and can be treated
