Chapter 1125: Leopard Cubs Shaving
“Is it all honey?”
Bai Qingqing recalled the exaggeratedly big beehive she had seen previously and thought that such a small piece wouldn’t be considered much to the bees. Moreover, her children had been bullied so badly, and, even though she was usually soft-hearted, she didn’t feel guilty in the slightest. She only felt the delight of having something good to eat.
“En,” Curtis gave the mother and sons an affirmative reply and then placed the beehive on the floor, removing the layers of tree leaves.
A sweet fragrant smell spread out, and, as the last layer of leaves was removed, it revealed a glaze-like golden color and an even stronger sweet scent.
The leopard cubs gulped their saliva and all of them pounced onto it excitedly, chewing. They ate until the fur on their faces seemed like a brush that had been used to brush batter, sticking together.
Bai Qingqing smiled and said to Muir, “Go get Harvey over and see if he can give the leopard cubs some medicine.”
“Alright.” Muir turned into his human form and replied, then wrapped himself up with animal skin before walking out quickly.
Leopards’ fur was very fine and soft, and would usually adhere to their body. Those with better skin and fur would even be glistening and compliant.
The leopard cubs’ fur was the kind that was considered to belong to those who had the best amount of nutrition. However, right now, their fur was unprecedentedly messy. Tufts perked up here and there, and there was no way to smooth them down.
Upon a careful touch, Bai Qingqing realized that the skin under the fur was covered with massive bumps. They felt uneven to the touch, and touching them turned one’s heart numb.
Bai Qingqing drew in a gasp and parted the fur to take a look, her heart aching even more.
Not long later, Harvey was brought over by Muir. After seeing the golden piece of honey on the ground, he looked surprised. His gaze swept across everyone present and immediately understood the situation.
“They have been stung by bees?” Although he posed it as a question, Harvey sounded certain. Seeing how messy the leopard cubs’ fur was, his brows furrowed.
Even a mature leopard beastman like him felt the pain from looking at the horrible state the cubs were in.
“That’s right. Is there any medicine that can be applied on them?” Bai Qingqing asked.
“It’ll be fine to apply honey on their wounds.” As Harvey said this, he squatted next to the cubs and parted their fur to take a look. His brows furrowed even tighter. “Why have they been stung so many times? Did they fall into a beehive?”
The situation was just like that. Bai Qingqing felt amused upon thinking this and replied, “That’s pretty much what happened.”
“Bees’ stingers have a slight amount of poison. It’s fine to be stung a few times, but given the number of times they have been stung, we need to remove the stingers.”
Bai Qingqing nodded and wanted to get to it right away.
However, the leopard cubs were covered with fur, and it was exceptionally hard to locate the bee stingers. With there being three of them, it’d take forever to remove all of the stingers.
Therefore, Bai Qingqing steeled her heart, ran into a room, and took out a few metal blades.
“Let’s just shave off all of their furs,” Bai Qingqing said firmly.
Her family had also shaved the fur off their Golden Retriever when it had contracted a skin disease. Given how many skin ulcers were growing on it, if they hadn’t shaved the dog in time, it’d have taken forever for the condition to heal. The leopard cubs’ condition shouldn’t be delayed, either. The stingers were poisonous, and it was better to shave them earlier and get them treated.
The three cubs’ bodies shook and they paused in their action of eating honey as their eyes turned warily toward their mommy.
Bai Qingqing was about to squat down when her vision blurred. All three cubs disappeared out of sight in an instant.
Bai Qingqing was speechless.
Harvey laughed. Bai Qingqing asked, “Erm… Can leopards’ fur be shaved? Would there be any impact on them after the new fur grows out?”
Bai Qingqing knew that some animals’ furs couldn’t be regrown. It was better to get the facts down first.
