Taz's Tip for Easy Tick Removal

Okay kitty pals (and even Sonny's Friends...) I just came across a great plan to get rid of nasty ticks. It goes like this:
  1. Apply a glob of liquid soap to a cotton ball.
  2. Cover the tick with the soap-soaked cotton ball and swab it for a few seconds (15-20), the tick will come out on its own and be stuck to the cotton ball when you lift it away.
This technique works every time my mom has used it (and that was frequently, and it's much less traumatic and easier on me).

  1. Kiya and Walker and their 11 cat pals will likely appreciate this! Their mother gets as close to the skin as possible with a pair of Tick designated tweezers and pulls.... sometimes she gets the head - sometimes it remains & the spot gets festered... requiring additional care. So Taz - Thanks for the TIP!
