Moe just almost died!

My cat Moe is not normally a dumbass. In fact, he kinda acts like a dog. He comes when you call him. He spazes and chases his own tail, but normally he's not straight up stupid.

Recently my building has had a major bug issue. Mostly ants. I have to be careful about food being anywhere. (Disclaimer: I am SOOOOO not a messy person, plus my building was built in 1923.) So what do I see today when I walk in the door is Moe.

Not my ordinary Moe either, he's chasing a yellowjacket around the apartment like it's a living toy. I tried to shoo it out and finally got to the point where I couldn't reach it. I was hoping it was tired.

I saw Moe about 30 mins. later walking like he was drunk. Staggering, glazed eyes. I FREAKED!

I took him to the kitty ER, turns out yellowjacket stings are far more powerful than bees, especially on my poor little Moe.

According to the vet, she said if I hadn't noticed it for another 15 mins. Moe would've died. He's allergic to Yellow Jackets! Crazy, huh?

He got some steroids and is fine now, but he's been sleeping most of the drugs off all afternoon and evening.

I feel like a bad Mom.

Moe will be fine now because you paid attention...Being a dad or mom does not mean you can predict the future. And if you try to much then your kids end up in a room with a chair scared to death to live.

Moe on you are going to have to get him lifting some kitty weights so he can pump himself up!

Hey I know what you mean about cats and bus. Mine is always bouncing around chasing whatever flying insect gets into the house. Sometimes it is a riot just to see her go nuts jumping about trying to get at it. Thanks for the warning on the yellow jacket sting. I'll have to be to on the watch if my cat ever goes after one of those.

It's like a bee or a hornet, they are actually pretty aggressive and tempremental. I don't suggest pissing one off!
