We've had to de-tick our moggies a couple of times - girl cat isn't a fan. I kneel down, clamp her between my legs and pin with both hands whilst my wife extracts the critter with tweezers. Boy cat is much more relaxed and trusting, I can just lightly hold him with my hands.

Good call on the deticking devices though, that is another thing on my list.

I spend a lot of time in the countryside. Much of it Deer country, and Lymes disease is getting more common.
So removing ticks is something I have to do from time to time.

I have tried various methods, but recently I have used..... 'O'Tom Tick Twisters's (Ebay)

Very easy to use and very effective at removing the Tick.
Simply engage the jaws and with the device at 90% to the surface of the skin, roll the device between your fingers and it kinds screws the creature out complete with head.

I recently saw an online video of tick removal using peppermint essential oil. Ticks hate it - put a couple of drops on the tick and within 30 seconds the tick crawls out!!

Anyone seen or tried this method?
