Cats and Scorpions
Do cats get sick from scorpion bites?
Yes, they can. Due to their small body weight, a small amount of venom can do more harm to a cat than a larger animal or person.
Fortunately, most scorpions do not have dangerous venom. One should be on the alert, though, and if you know your cat has been bitten by a scorpion, you should go straight to the vet.

My cat had kittens over a month ago and now out of nowhere she has started drooling and has a little sore on her top lip that looks like a burn. She has her tongue sticking out with little sores on it and I don't know what it is. She has been sleeping a lot more than usual and urinates large amounts but few times. I don't have any money but I'm all for home remedies or any suggestions you may have for me.

She could also have a serious mouth bacterial infection or serious viral infection. All of these things I mention require different treatments and only through a veterinarian exam could it be determined which your cat needs.
Have you tried a company called CareCredit? They have payment plans for veterinary care. Have you asked the vet if he will give you a reduced fee or a payment plan? Have you asked for help from your family and friends?
I hope you can help your kitty. I am very sorry.
