 I was pulled over by a police officer while driving in Iowa. It was one week afterI
 had arrived in the USA for the first time. I had accidentally made a minor
 mistake disobeying a traffic sign. Back home in Australia it's considered polite to
 get out of your car and walk over to the police officer's car and hand him your
 license so he doesn't have to get out of his seat. I wanted to be extra polite so I
 immediately jumped out of my car and walked towards his car while reaching
 into my back pocket.
 I'm lucky to be alive.
 If you come from a gun-free country like the UK or Australia you don't have any
 natural instinct for gun culture. You don't realize that police assume that
 everyone is armed.
 Things got immediately serious. The police officer's hand went to his weapon
 and I responded by dropping to my knees with my hands up. He yelled a bunch
 of things at me but my memory is vague because my heartbeat was suddenly
 pulsing in my ears blotting out all sound. I don't know if he drew his weapon or
 not. I was staring intently at the ground, shaking and trying to project non-
 threatening vibes. My next memory is that there were three police cars around
 me and a bunch of cops who'd been called for backup. They were all keeping
 their hands close to their guns. After some time passed (a minute? 30 minutes?I
 have no idea) the tensions de-escalated and they told me to get up. I gave the
 officer my license and tried to explain why I'd approached him. It was completely
 incomprehensible to him that there was a place where people don't fear cops and

Make sure your pets are on flea/tick/heartworm prevention and get your dogs vaccinated against lyme! The sun is shining and the grass is green in minnesota today, what a lovely beginning to the impending TICKPOCALYPSE Remember to cover yourselves appropriately if you鈥檙e going places with lots of wildlife! Ticks are dangerous for people as well as pets! I鈥檝e always heard to avoid long pants because ticks are easier to notice and remove when they try to climb a bare leg, but I think it鈥檚 a matter of preference tbh. What you really need is to use a good repellant made for use in tick heavy areas. I鈥檓 not talking citronella essential oils, I mean a real repellant like Deep woods OFF that uses DDT. Spray it on your shoes and inside your shoes. You would be surprised how many ticks start in your socks and work their way up. I have had waaaaaay fewer guests on me after spraying my shoes as well as my legs. If you want to get REALLY serious you can treat your hiking gear in permethrin, or get permethrin treated exercise gear. It鈥檚 a very potent, effective substance that kills ticks and other parasites on contact. It鈥檚 present in some flea and tick treatments for dogs. But the kicker is, permethrin is also VERY toxic to cats, so if you have a cat and you feel like you need permethrin treated gear, you MUST keep the gear where kitty can鈥檛 get it. Friendly reminder to stock up on tick meds for your pets, and repellent for yourself! This year is going to be a BAD one. ALWAYS check yourself after a hike, or any trip outside. Wear bright clothes so it鈥檚 easier to see ticks on you, and make sure to do a full-body check when you鈥檙e done. This includes checking your hair line and under waistbands or underwear (last tick I found on me was on my butt, and I had been hiking with pants and a long shirt on鈥rust me, check under your underwear). Remove ticks as soon as you find them, and keep them in a small container or bag (heads completely squished) for identification purposes just in case your bite looks iffy later on. Clean the bite site thoroughly. Be on the look out for any flu-like symptoms, rashes, or red rings around the bite site like a bulls-eye (note: a slight red ring right afterward is normal, see below for what 鈥渂ad鈥 looks like). Usually if you get a tick off in the first 24 hours you鈥檒l be ok, so long as you didn鈥檛 agitate the tick, but if you notice anything abnormal go to the doctor ASAP. If your tick was engorged when removed, be especially on the lookout. It鈥檚 always better to be safe than sorry when it comes to the nasty diseases ticks can carry. Remember: if you鈥檙e buying tick preventatives for your pets, make sure you get one that鈥檚 meant for them. Don鈥檛 use dog-specific medicine on cats, or vice-versa, and make sure you get the correct weight range for your pet. Failure to do so can lead to serious complications for your pets. If you鈥檙e not sure what you should use or what鈥檚 safe for pets, contact your local veterinarian and ask. If your pet is bitten by a tick and displays any abnormal behaviors or symptoms of sickness get them to your vet as soon as you can and bring the tick with you. This has been your tick safety reminder post for the season. Reblogging for both human tick safety and the note that permethrin is really deadly to cats. important addition: when you come in from your outdoors activity, as you do your tick check put the clothes you were wearing directly into the wash (or, if you can鈥檛 wash them immediately for some reason, into a sealed plastic bag). Don鈥檛 sit on your furniture, don鈥檛 put the clothes in your hamper with your other things, and don鈥檛 delay the tick check. If a tick is on the removed clothing and the clothing isn鈥檛 cleaned, they鈥檒l head for the nearest delicious mammal, whether that鈥檚 a person or a pet. After you quarantine your clothes and check your whole body (get a buddy or use a mirror for your back), it鈥檚 also wise to shower, although that鈥檚 by no means foolproof, and won鈥檛 have any effect if a tick has already latched on.聽 When you do your check, focus on the crevices of your body- on people and animals, ticks are most likely to latch on in warm and protected areas.
