Curiosity did not kill these 15 cats, but it did result in swollen cheeks, noses, or paws for them!
Cats are renowned for their penchant for exploring places they shouldn’t be. You’ll frequently catch your feline friend lurking around, digging into your laundry drawer, or investigating behind the kitchen counter.
However, if your cat has outdoor access or an errant bee ventures inside, you can expect your little hunter to make a determined effort to chase it down. Unfortunately, this pursuit doesn’t always end well.
The outcome depends on where the bee stings your kitty, and if it’s the first time. It’s essential to consult a veterinarian if the bee or wasp stings your cat inside their mouth or throat.
