Oh, it's lucky that you @bdubwim don't have ticks where you live! In our yard in the village, where we moved to live in the summer, live two older cats and they have a lot of ticks on their bodies all the time. That's why we were worried! But I understood from the beginning that later the children will get used to it and will let our cat go for a walk on their own. We did antiparasitic prophylaxis for him and everything is ok :) Thank you for the comment.
