The Bees Are Back In Town: Next Stop Cats

Have you ever been stung by a bee? Oh boy do they hurt! Bee stings generally cause pain and swelling to various degrees depending on how individual each person or animal's body reacts. Our sweet silly kitties are well known for getting into all kinds of mischief. These shenanigan searcher outers often find themselves in some less than ideal situations that their owners must rescue them from. While the majority of cats are not allergic to bee stings therefore they are not fatal, it is super important to be on alert and try to avoid the situation all together.

However, IF your cat does get stung by a bee, it's important to react appropriately. Thanks to the Veterinary Centers of America, we have a conducive guide on how to handle the situation. According to the VCA, this is what you've got to do:

Step one: Soothe the bite site. Make a thick paste of baking soda and water and apply it to the sting site. If your cat has multiple stings or bites, a soothing oatmeal bath is the way to go.

Step two: Minimize swelling. Apply an ice pack to the affected area for 10 minutes to reduce swelling. A bag of frozen peas serves as a handy ice pack for individual bites. A cooled towel works better for larger areas.

 

Good luck!!

Tumblr Thread: Cursed But Real Medieval Beekeeper Garb

You must have wondered how people in the past handled things for which we have technology today. A washing machine? Well, we've seen pics how people washed clothes in the river? Cellphones? Well, there were phone booths, and way before that, there were... letters. But have you ever thought about how beekeepers used to handle their bees before they got their fancy outfits?

Apparently, tumblr users have indeed wondered about it, and the answer is they handled them with baskets on their faces. And after reading this, we want to say thank you to tumblr for both informing us of cool facts and mildly scaring us and giving us nightmares.

All About The Birds And The Bees (Memes)

We're here to teach you all about the birds and the bees! With bird and bee memes, of course! 

Why, what were you thinking? 

We have a deep love for birb memes, this you probably already knew but what about some appreciation for our honey-makers of the world? We do not see a bunch of bee-related memes out there (besides the 'Bee Movie', which shouldn't exist), and that needs to change!

Otherwise, how will the next generation know all about the birds and bees if not through memes? Luckily, that's a thought for another time. We've got a beautiful blend of screaming birds and sweet, sweet stinging bees. Enjoy!
