Thanks to Joe DeCapo for his response to my offer of an autographed book plate for the new edition of Parasite Rex. And yes, his cat (named μ) does probably haz one.
I expected to see a picture of that fish-tongue-eating arthropod saying “OH HAI.” Or maybe a guinea worm saying “CAN YOU PLEEZ NOT PULL ME OUT? KTHXBAI!”
Buts the cat is cute, too. : )
