    Hiya. Poor little kitty.:(
    On the paw the sting should not be a problem.
    If she becomes disoriented or has trouble with breathing see a vet ASAP.
    I think a lot of cats get stung on the paws without the owners knowing.

    I think one of mine was stung once because when ever she saw a wasp she kept clear of it.

    An ice pack on the paw might reduce some of the swelling.
    Let us know how she is later.

    Thanks jill, Ollie got stung about 5 hours ago, at first he was limping on the paw that got stung, then started licking the paw and was very quiet for a while generally feeling sorry for himself. Thankfully he,s now back to his mischief ways, and he,s been back out -avoiding wasps-:rolleyes:
