Would my cat die if a black widow bit her?

She has a lump on her side i checked it out and its swollen and has a scab on it.She is a Maine coon/Bombay mix. She is the size of a female Maine coon and 1 year in age. I think it was a black widow that bit her. We have lots of them around here

You should definitely take your cat to the vet if you are concerned for her health. With that being said, what specifically makes you think she has been bitten by a black widow spider? Usually these spiders live in dark corners in areas like your garage and don't bother people or animals unless they mess with their nests. I'm not saying your cat was not bitten by a black widow, but if she was she would be experiencing some pretty severe symptoms especially since you posted the question many hours ago.

What to Watch For:

Extreme pain in the area of the bite
Muscle tremors
Rigid muscles
Paralysis
Death

Diagnosis:

There is no blood test currently available to detect black widow spider venom. Diagnosis is based on the potential access to black widow spiders and physical exam findings of muscle rigidity, spasms and possible breathing difficulty.

Treatment:

There is an antivenin available that has been helpful in people but may be cost prohibitive in the veterinary setting. Black widow spider antivenin is usually available through human hospitals. Other treatment options may include:

Relaxing the muscles and assisting with breathing
Medications to reduce muscle spasms
Hospitalization with intravenous fluids
Dogs tend to survive black widow spider bites with veterinary treatment. Cats, however, do not do very well.

I also found the following information on a pet first aid website:

Signs of the black widow spider bite include regional tenderness and numbness followed by hyperesthesia. Muscle pain (severe) and cramping of the muscles of the chest, abdomen, back, and other large muscles occur. Abdominal rigidity without tenderness is a classic sign of envenomation by the black widow spider. Seizures are possible. Respiration may be compromised because of the abdominal cramping. Muscle rigidity decreases with time followed by muscle paralysis. Increased blood pressure and heart rate may be seen. Death is caused by respiratory or cardiovascular collapse. Extremely sensitive to black widow spider bites, cats show signs of severe pain, drooling, restlessness, and early paralysis. Death is common in cats.

I hope this helps, and I really hope that your cat was not bitten by a black widow spider. I recently had an exterminator at my home spraying for wasps and he showed me several black widows in my garage that I had no idea were there. He safely removed them for me using a special spray so you might want to call someone if you know you have these spiders in your home.
