What is a common cat disease that causes involuntary tremors and shaking? The cat can live with it and adapt to it. I think it begins with “myo…” something…I just can’t think of the name. There’s a kitten at the rescue shelter that has it, and they say that the cat can live with it, but I want to know if this is true.

Do you mean hypomyelination? That is a condition in which there is not enough myelin (a fatty substance) to adequatley cover the axons of the cats nerve cells which can lead to tremors. Usually in kittens the nervous syptoms improve by the time the cat reaches 1 year of age and can have a normal lifespan. So yes it is true the cat can grow up to be healthy and normal.
