We get REALLY weird email: "The Ear Wax Test"


From a reader who for his or her own protection from the authorities will remain unidentified (unless he or she chooses to unmask him- or herself publicly right here in this forum) comes the following email, complete and unexpurgated.

Have you ever tried the Ear Wax Test with Gray Cat? It's simple: Clean your ear(s) out real good with a Q-Tip or ear digger of your choice, then hold the wax-harvesting tool up to Gray Cat's nose, giving her time to sniff. Laurie goes NUTS when I do this — he licks and bites and slurps & gets all excited. Jane not so much. Of cats past, I had a boy Siamese and a boy tuxedo who loved it, too. A friend says her cat invades the bathroom trash can to dig out the used Q-Tips so he can roll in them. Weird!"

Res ipsa loquitur.

I cringe a bit in anticipation of what joehead Nation's about to deliver in response to this post: I will NOT be accepting packages for the next few weeks, let's just leave it at that.


Ear Wax Candy as pictured: $1.99.

I cannot for the life of me imagine what kind of weirdo freak would think about presenting ear wax to a cat. And then send an email encouraging somebody else to do it, too. Internetz has gone straight to hell. I'm contacting PETA. Good grief. Hmph.
