How do I remove a tick from my cat?

How to Remove a Tick

The easiest way to remove ticks from any animal is to use a pair of tweezers.

Grab the tick with the tweezers as close to the animal's skin as possible; this will insure that you remove the head as well as the body of the tick.

I have had better luck if I use a quick, jerking motion, rather than a continuous pulling motion, since this could separate the head from the body of the tick.
