Last night I went out to tend to the cats in the greenhouse and noticed a cat batting at something behind the water bowl. I slid the bowl out and behind it was the biggest scorpion I've ever seen around these parts. I smushed it and did some research and found it was one of these I think. I wonder what a sting would do to a cat? In my research, I found this:"There are at least 100 species of scorpions in the United States; more than half of them are found in California, 58 species. " Above is the one I sent to glory.
