The famous quote 'curiosity killed the cat,' and a common expression about cats having nine lives is there for a reason. The small felines tend to get themselves into the most curious, dangerous and improbable situations. And it is quite a paradox, that they do so because of a basic survival instinct to assess the environment for predators and prey. Although since most of the curious cats spend their days as our house pets, the assessment can mean jumping into boxes, unrolling toilet paper and scratching your favorite couch. Or in this case, it's silly cats who got stung by bees.

Cat stung by a bee can look quite hilarious, but it's important to know how to help them out as well. Depending on where your mischievous and funny cat was stung, it can be a simple inconvenience or a life-threatening situation.

Removing a stinger is done the same as it would be for a person – by scraping the stinger instead of squeezing it. If your cat was stung in the mouth or throat, which can happen if it tried to eat the bee, seek veterinary help immediately. A bee sting swelling in throat region can suffocate your cat. Read these instructions so you can be prepared for when your cat gets stung by a bee!

Now that you know how to help a kitten in need, scroll down for some pretty hilarious cat pictures; it's always funny to laugh at somebody else's little misfortunes, even if it's a cat.
