Update on the Furbabies

Well, it was hard to sleep last night because I was still worried.

Pebbles looking stylish in her younger days

Thankfully, Pebbles is still doing well. She still shows no signs that yesterday even happened. She showed no signs of hives or swelling unless they are underneath all that fur coat. I figured they’d be more concentrated near the site of the bee sting.

I did notice something on her face, but I can’t tell if it’s another skin tag or if it’s a stinger, and of course Pebbles won’t sit still long enough to examine it. Hopefully the vet will be able to see us tomorrow so I can get that looked at. She’s standing next to me staring at me like she knows I’m writing about her, LOL.

Smore is doing well too. I bought her DaBird by GoCat and it got here on Friday. Smore absolutely loves it. The first day we played with it I had to put it up because I didn’t want her to overdo it; I thought she was panting super hard but I think she was doing that cat smell thing with their mouth. Anyway, afterward she was staring up at the shelf where I put it and you could tell that she was trying to figure out how to get it.

I keep it in the house so she can’t get it, but she does enjoy playing with it. It’s exciting to watch how she can just lie there while it goes above her and she can reach up, grab it with her paw, and shove it in her mouth in a second.

She has also started to get in the house when I open the door. It’s definitely time to start desensitizing Pebbles to the little furball.

    I’m so glad Pebbles isn’t showing any lasting effects from her bee encounter! It doesn’t sound like a seizure to me…my dog Barley gets them. But I’m only familiar with the grand mal seizures that he gets. I wonder if she had a reaction, but that it scared her so badly that she got a huge surge of adrenaline to counteract it? No idea…it does seem weird that she would snap back quickly like that though. The vet I used to work for always prescribed Benadryl at 1 mg/kg, but certainly check with the vet when you go in to make sure that’s right and that it won’t react with other meds, for future reference.

      Yeah. Her bouncing back on her own and so quickly is what is confusing me too. I know my niece when she gets hurt holds her breath until she passes out. Made me wonder if Pebbles did that too. I don’t know. Definitely need to work with the vet to come up with a plan in case it happens again!
