Good luck with catching him/her.

If you do manage to get it somewhere for tick removal and you would like to do it yourself in the future, ask if then can show you. It’s the same as removing from a dog and I assume yourself. The bit to get right is NOT LEAVING ANY IN so there is a knack. The other bit is getting your little friend to unroll. We use a soft toothbrush gently stroked along the spines which worked!
Probably best to have someone show you and try it while you are there to see how you feel about doing it.
Keep us posted
