You've described a complex partial seizure in Macey. If it hasn't stopped by the time you've read this, she's in status epilepticus (the state in which seizure activity doesn't stop) and needs to see an on-call vet who will heavily sedate or anesthetize here. At 12 years years of age the cause of such seizures most often will be found in the brain and brain tumor is most common. Please give me an update on Macey.
