Hurry up, every buddy! We're going to the PARK!
I've got everything I need to visit nature today! I've got my Waffle Wagon, I've got my harness, my leash and my treats. I've got Glogirly. And most important (ok maybe not as important as Glogirly) ... I have my purr-tection: My flea and tick collar from the nice people at Seresto.
Why does such a fiercely handsome mancat need purr-tection? Even though we live in the city, just a few paw-steps from downtown Minneapolis, there's lots and lots of fleas and STICKS living it up in our... Wait, Huh? TICK season??? Ok, but there's still some good sticks, right? I was told there would be sticks.
Hangin' in the grass and weeds.
The park I'm at today is called Boom Island. It's a small park just across the Mrs. Hippy river from downtown Minneapolis. Glogirly says that the ticks can lay in the tall weeds & grass all summer long without a meal, just waiting for a handsome mancat like me to come along.
Like a good neighbor.
Glogirly says that some ticks are so close to home, they're practically our NEIGHBORS. Don't worry, George & Harriet from next door, I don't mean you. But watch out! Even on your patio, you might not be alone.
Glogirly says that anyone who likes hot and sticky summers is crazy. I guess that makes ticks crazy too on account of they love Minnesota in the summer. They don't like dry desserts though– I mean deserts.
Uh, did someone say dessert???
Uh, seriously. I'm pretty sure I heard 'dessert.'
