What the cat dragged in. Yuck!

Thread Starter 
As usual, Purdy spent several hours outdoors today. And as usual, he spent a lot of time in my lap this evening. He is a long-hair, and has a lot of matting problems with going out in the rain. But he has a limited tolerance, so I combed him three different times. After the third time, I tried combing just a few more strokes while he was eating, and guess what I combed out of his fur? A small SLUG! Still living, too. I tell you, that cat can bury most anything in that mass of hair!

LOL! Oh yucky!! When I had outdoor cats they used to come in with bits of tree and stuff stuck in their fur.

Ick!

I'm glad you found it on the cat, rather than somewhere else crawling around your house at a later date!

Cats don't have pockets or purses - they have to keep their snacks SOMEWHERE!

We live at the Jersey shore. When I used to let my cats run, Tuffy came in with a crab claw stuck to his upper lip. LOL I had a heck of a time getting him to sit still so that I could get it off. It must have hurt like the dickens!!

And yuck on the slug! I don't ever get any "suprises" from Dori. She has short hair.

I just had a hard time believing that I had combed him three times and had him in my lap probably a total of an hour or more and not have found that thing earlier. Oh well, I guess it is better to have something crawling around ON him than crawling around IN him. It was only a month or six weeks ago that he vomited a four-inch-long WORM! Had to have him dewormed twice before I think we got rid of that problem.

Yes, there are distinct disadvantages to letting a cat run outside.

Our last cat used to go to the local supermarket and steal bags of meat/lunch meat from shopping carts while people were loading their cars. He also brought home a (dead) guinea pig and a koi. I think I'd prefer a slug!

Well, the joke is on me. The slug was back.

When I found that slug a few days ago, I got a piece of toilet tissue, picked him off in it, and threw him in the toilet. I didn't want to waste three gallons of water on flushing a slug. (It is an old-style toilet which does take a lot of water.) And I assumed that a slug would move so slowly that he would drown in there before he could go anywhere.

Well, I have more than one bathroom in my house, and apparently didn't use that toilet over the past couple of days. I went in to use it at 3 AM this morning and there was the slug - right on the toilet seat rim! Good thing it was in this bathroom and not the one with the master bedroom. At least with this one, I have to turn on the light, so I saw it. Had it been the other bathroom, I have a small nightlight in there and often use the toilet in the middle of the night without turning on the big lights. I would have sat on that thing and s-q-u-i-s-h! Yucky, oh yucky! The very thought!

He is GONE now!

No, no, we have wa-a-ay too many slugs out there, and slugs eat plants. They love my primroses and ferns, and just about anything else nice and tender.
