My Sphynx gets spasms

Dear Awie or to whom it may concern: Last night my cat started getting a spasm - only the second time i notice this - he was sitting on our kitchen counter top looking at our other sphynx cat, his back leg raised slowly putting it down lifting his front leg slowly... lilted to the side and started contracting or getting a spasm his ears were flat and his eyes were full on dilated, this lasted for about 5 min there were no sudden movements from him his heart beat faster and he started getting shivers (like he was cold) any ideas what this could be?

Dear Isna

I suspect it may be epilepsy but have a bllod test done to rule out other problems.
