No, he's not having some kind of incurable fit. I didn't stomp on him. He wasn't thrown from a speeding car. Damien (the Beast) is rolling on my parent's back deck during my visit a couple weeks ago. See the dark stuff on the deck? Tree sap. The only spot on the whole deck with warm tree sap and of course the little orange rat rolled in it. So my cat's retarded. Or really, really "special".
