Poor Angel Miaow, budak’s owner. Seems like she got some unwelcome company because of his purrmiscuous hands.
When Kitty asks: “Mum, Dad, why am I itching?“, you don’t want the answer to be: “Because I gave some mites a free ride home and forgot to wash my hands.”
This is especially true if you’re a TNRM caregiver – you never know what the homeless kitties came into contact with. While we don’t shun contact with Marty, Ivan et al, btmao and I change out of our clothes and get a light wash whenever we get home after serving the clannies before we touch the slackers. A bit of a hassle, but cats like those two rub against us all over, and Marty always insist on nosekisses with btmao or at least to touch her face with his paws.
