Cats and Bees

When I got my bees one of the things I wondered was would they get along with my cats? Would they think the kitties were small furry threats and attack them?

Well, what has happened is that the cats have decided they like the bees very much and I usually have at least one small furry supervisor for each hive inspection.

If they’re not lounging on top of empty brood boxes or trying to sharpen their claws on queen excluders, they’re posted on or beside the hives keeping watch. The bees don’t seem to mind one bit.
