Hi everyone--my name is Kristin and I'm from the April 2010 playroom.

My cat Larry won't close his mouth and his tongue sticks out of his mouth. We noticed this last night. He was outside on our deck until dusk last night. He seems to eat okay and purrs when you pet him.

Do you think it's possible he got stung by a bee in his mouth?

We have an appt. tomorrow for him. Maybe it's a decaying tooth??

Has anyone heard of cats being stung in their mouth? Has anyone had this prob. happen to their cats?

Thank you so much.

Did it stop? Sounds like he could have been panting but if it didn't stop that wouldn't be it. He wouldn't have to be stung inside his mouth for a reaction to ensue just near his mouth. My cat got stung on the nose and her whole face swelled up so definitely anything is possible.

Make sure he's drinking okay and let us know how the vet appointment goes.

Is this the first time you noticed it? Was it out the front or the side? I have a cat whose tongue just sticks out most of the time. She sleeps like that mostly. He could have been just panting or if he lost any teeth, it could cause it to flop out.
