Poor Kinzyl, I hope she feels better soon! How awful! A trip to your vet may be a good idea even if she seems fine since they can probably offer you some anti inflammatory meds that will probably make her feel better too.
Do not pull the stinger out with your fingers or tweezers because this will squeeze out more venom. Instead, scrape the stinger out with your fingernail, the edge of a credit card, a dull knife blade, or other straight edged object.
