Ticks are still tocking

UPDATE: as of Nov. 10th we've harvest 99 ticks off the cats! Daisy, who likes to sit in the grass looking for mice friends, account for 66 of them!

Fall means ticks from Jennifer Jilks on Vimeo.
Poor little Daisy had a huge tick on her this morning. I removed it, and popped it into the jar of rubbing alcohol. You can see the bodies of the other ticks we've removed.

This one had been on Daisy likely sucking her blood for days, it's terribly large.

Poor Annabelle

This is the adult creepy crawling around.

Yikes! Nasty little blighters but am impressed with your close ups. Glad Daisy is rid of them.

Very annoying for the cats!

You really keep a good eye on your cats to catch the ticks. Ticks are hard to notice until they start drilling!

So big! I worry about them in the bush but haven't picked up any - yet. - Margy
