Some of the earliest signs of strokes in cats are head tilt, loss of balance, seizures and confusion. Other symptoms include walking in circles, blindness and reduced facial movement, states knowyourcat.info.
An owner of a cat exhibiting any of these symptoms should take his pet to a veterinarian immediately. Medical tests can confirm if the symptoms are the result of a stroke and also help the veterinarian diagnose other issues in the brain, such as vascular disease, inflammation and lesions. A cat can continue to live a healthy life after a stroke if it is able to eat and drink on its own and can be observed carefully, states knowyourcat.info.
