Mine hunt and eat all kinds of yucky stuff, so they get wormed routinely, just ask your vet how often is good.
Frontline would fix the flea problem, but it's probably not affordable for that many kitties...
what do you feed them, if I may ask?
My cats are safe and happy indoors with the exception of one who I will let out occasionally, sometimes, but I am weaning her off of going outside. She is begun to stop begging finally.
I feed Premium Edge, Chicken Soup or Authority. Whichever store I am at when I need cat food and which ever is cheaper.
Starting April, I am buying the large dog Frontline and dosing it down for my cats. It is $42 for one box of Frontline and that can treat 21 cats. So all of my cats for 3 months. Can't beat that!
As for the worms... since they were treated today I dumped all the litterboxes and bleached and refilled them. My boyfriend said he say tapeworm on one of them awhile back, but didn't tell me for awhile and that cat was never treated but I have not seen anymore and the cat shows none of the typical signs of having worms... I am 95% there are no fleas, but as I stated earlier, with a many cat household, you can never be sure there isn't one hanging around. I flea comb and check all the time though.
