poor little guy just freaks out when you get to a certain spot on his back. no blood, he's not chewing the hair off. makai said his little dog is the exact same way when he gets a tick on him.

guess i'll have to immobilize him and have a look :crook:

immobilizing tiger is no easy feat! :lol: :eek: :undecided:

:funny1: I am a bad kitty Mom, as I can't deal with their sounds of being tortured either.

Call back and recommend ear plugs? :dunno:

well it's still sensitive but he did let me pick him up which lawrence couldn't believe since he tried to pick him up early in the day and got those tortured cries.

later i think we're going to try to subdue him and i'm going in :pimp:

I'm lucky whenever Tiger or Desmond has anything they cannot contend with on them they come to me first thing. Did you try dosing him with nip?:wink:

well, i actually left the day after the tick incident so i am just getting reports. not sure if it was a tick, forest said that there is just a little black scab now that he can actually investigate with out getting his hand mauled. maybe there was one and he chewed it off :dunno:

in any case, he's fine now :)
