Okay, you see scorpions on TV, in movies and newspapers, but nobody ever told me that when I moved to Florida, there'd be one in my sister's bedroom!!! I didn't see the creature because I was in class, but I heard how it fascinated her cat! Apparently, he'd been watching it before my sister entered the room and she was--- well, I think the word 'surpised' might be a tad understated here. Anyway, the thing's life took a quick turn from being 'annoyed by a cat' to 'flushed down the toilet' by way of hasty broom & dustpan! Oh, wish I'd seen that!
With a little research, I've found that most North American scorpions aren't poisonous to people over the age of 6. No mention, however, what might have happened if my sister's overly playful cat had been stung!! Anyone know if that would have been fatal or just made him very ill?
Thanks for letting me vent.
