Damned cat came in tonight with a not so nice, big, fat, juicy, ugly tick on its back. The wife went all funny so out came the tick tweezers for the first time. Ticks make a funny popping sound when you put a lighter to them
Edit - just had a thought, the only place he goes is in the back garden! That is not a comforting thought but goes to show that these suckers are never far away.
