Ticks and Cats
The other night a friend and I were discussing ticks. Yeah in Wisconsin it comes up.(We also discussed The Count of Monte Cristo, Revenge, the Old West, the fate of the Indians and Simon and Garfunkel....we are not completely country bumpkins :o)
My friend wondered 'Why did God make ticks?'
They must have a purpose. Not a higher calling type of purpose...but who eats them...who do they eat (well besides us)?
Do I really want to know?
Which brings me to cats. Our sassy domesticated cat seems to exist for companionship. And I think we are *her* companions. We serve her. It's pretty funny. She is the most self-centered one in the house. Which is a good thing...I'm glad it's not me :o)
Maggie the Scratchy Cat likes Emma the most. She shows this by sitting on Emma and sleeping in her bed. Other than that we are just big door openers and water bringers.
Two amusing things about Maggie. She is the heaviest footed cat I have ever heard. Clunk, clunk, clunk...trods our kitty up the stairs.
Where are your quiet feet?
She also runs to the door when someone knocks. Who is she expecting?
Ok...I just remembered a gross tick story.
A long time ago Mom had a Dr. appointment. The appointment was scheduled for a few days after a vacation in Hayward Wisconsin.
At the Doctor's office, Mom showed the Dr. what she thought was a mole. It was in a spot she couldn't see very well.
To her great surprise...IT WAS A TICK!
Encourage one another...and check for ticks,
