Summer is here, which means we're deep in a sticky sea of frozen treats. Ice Cream! Slurpees! Froyo! With all the delectable options, it’s easy to get carried away, eat too quickly, and then feel the inevitable sharp pain in your head. This sensation is called “sphenopalatine ganglioneuralgia,” more commonly known as “brain freeze.”
Humans are not alone in experiencing this phenomenon. Our feline companions can also get the dreaded “ice cream headache,” as evidenced by this compilation of overeager cats above. It’s hilarious, and a little bit painful to watch, but don’t feel too bad for the furry little gluttons. The original videos uploaded to YouTube by their owners show that the brief moment of discomfort didn’t quell these cats' love of ice cold consumables one bit.
