Answer by kate
this is an impossible question to answer i'm afraid. cats react to so many little things that i couldn't say for definate what caused it. Did someone put on a strong perfume? By cat nevber butes, ever but if she get a whiff of perfume she will go mad and attack.
Keep an eye on your cat and see if there are any other symptoms which may need medical treatment.
