Random disgusting insect query

Well, arachnid technically. Is this blood-sucking piece of garbage an American Dog Tick?

tick from my cat

I think it is. A female.That marking behind the head seems distinctive, and the brown dog tick has a much shorter mouth. I asked elsewhere online, but then I thought “Hey, I know a group of smart motherfuckers who hang out in the outdoors and have animals, I should ask them.”

I had to cut it in half with a spoon to kill it. You can’t pinch a tick to death. Hardy summabitches.

And that’s the story of why I posted a fucking tick picture on the blog. :)

    You know, shit like that is why I’m not an environmentalist.

    The greens say we’re killing mother nature. I SAY MOTHER NATURE FUCKING STARTED IT!

    Sonofabitch. It’s the neighbor cat. She adopted us after her owners abandoned her when they got a dog. She’s sweet and adorable but lives outdoors, and Donna found a tick on herself after playing with the cat yesterday. She didn’t know they need smashing or burning so she threw it in the garbage. We found it on our indoor cat tonight. Thank God he’s got white fur! Just ordered the Fronline Plus. Some cats is gonna be gettin they necks wet soon.
