Tough Cat Tuesday

So, Mom stayed home Monday cause she had appointments this morning. But she was suppose to work this afternoon. But it was another nice day, and I begged and begged to go out. So we went out front where the rosemary bush and the buzzy flying bugs were. I just had to chase them! I really attacked them, and got one down onto the ground! I was so tough! But just when I was going in for the kill, it bit me! I shook it, and tried to be bad, but it HURT! So I layed down by Mom and looked at her. She lafed a me! But then she got a little worried, and took me in the house. She got these long tweezy things and some supper strong funny looking eye glasses. I let her put me on her lap and look at my paw, it was so achy! Then, she yanked out this hideous looking thing! But afterward, I wanted to go out again, so again we went out, and I I saw buzzy things! I thought about gettting one, and really showing them who is boss. But Mom wouldn't let me get one, so after patroling the yard, we went back in.

But a little later, I wasn't feeling so good. My left paw started to look a little funny and big.

Instead of playing when Dad got home like a usually do, I decided all I wanted to do was sleep. It remined me of how I felt when I got my last set of kitty shots. But a good nap always does wonders.

Poor girl! I hope you're feeling better today! I'm sure you are. My Danny Boy(RIP) had the same thing happen to him two summers in a row! The one summer we were out front and he swatted at a bumblebee! I hadn't realized he'd gotten stung even, until Danny climbed in my lap later for a nap and his poor paw was swollen huge! He didn't have any reaction except for the swelling though, thank goodness! So, leave those bees alone Tara! Ok?

Are you OK Tara??? Did your mom properly kiss your paw? My gosh you're tough. Meowmy has to horrible fears in life- tornados, and bees. She thinks you're SUPER brave.

Poor Tara! Those bees are so dumb, is it really worth it to sting to lose your guts and die?? No! Mommy's old woofie was allergic to those things so be extra careful!
It was good of you to let your mommy take the stinger out. When Daisy graduates, she can take care off all your stinger remover needs too! You are one tough kitty! Make sure you milk this for lotsa snuggles though....
