I had a tick!

Oh boy, was I upset. Paul found a tick on me last night - icky! How could they let this happen to me! It looked just like this.....

This is not the one they pulled off me - Vicki was too freaked out by the size of it to take a photo of the real one. She is used to tiny little ones the size of a pin head on my ears. This was a mega one on the back of my neck!

So to get it off, Vicki and Paul put me on the bed and Vicki lay on me while Paul tried to pull it off with the tweezers. But I wasn't having any of that, and kept shaking my head just when Paul would get close. So Paul lay on me and Vicki held my head still while Paul pulled it off with the tweezers. They got it but not without lots of howling from me plus biting (I didn't break the was just a warning bite), scratching and kicking...

Anyway it is all good now and Paul and Vicki made up for it with lots of cuddles.


  1. Oh poor Batu! That's really nasty. I hope you're okay now.

  2. EEEK ! The hole experience sounds ghastly. Hope you're OK now.

  3. We have had to deal with ticks here lots. We smother them in petroleum jelly first so they let go.

  4. Owchie! We know it must not have been fun to go through, but we're sure it was better to have it done with and now it's gone. Take lots of naps to recover!

    Purrs and hugs,

  5. OMG! Tick !!!

  6. ICK - TICK!

    We had lots of problems with them on our woofies last year. This year hasn't been bad at all.

  7. Yucks! Glad they got it off and weren't upset with you for "fighting". They understood, hence all the extra cuddles!

  8. Yuck! I thought fleas were bad, but ticks are terrible.

  9. Hate those ugly buggies, they are nasty!
    Glad they got that thingie out.
    Hope you feel better Batu!
