One of my new lil' kittens had a tick. I read my cat care manual and it said to take it out with tweezers. It suggested something to shrink the tick if needed, but I can't remember what it was- I think rubbing alcohol. I just took the tweezers, grabed it as close as possible to where it was attached, and pulled. It was stuck in pretty good but came out completely. Make sure you dispose of it due to risk of disease to you - lyme disease is pretty common around here. I checked the location today, about a week later and it looks like it was healed. I did mention to the vet that it was there when I brought them in. She didn't seem overly concerned.
