Hey there, everybody. I recently joined Cathobbyist.com and since I can't find an answer to this question, I thought I'd ask the "experts" !

So, does anyone out there know if a cat or kitten is stung by a scorpion what the cat's/kitten's reaction may be? There's been rumors to the effect that cats are "immune" to scorpion stings. Reason I ask is because I recently gave my mom a beautiful Birman kitten (he's going on 4 months old now), and every now and again, she finds baby scorpions in her house (yes, we live in Arizona). She asked the vet about it, but all she said was "at one time we thought they were immune to scorpion stings." Although he HASN'T been stung, my mom worries because we ALL know how kitties can be when finding a luscious appetizer! Appreciate any and all replies.
