The part about the worms really disturbed me. How do indoor cats get tapeworms and are you supposed to put your kitty on regular medication to prevent it?
Mine are entirely indoor, and have had worms off and on the past year or so--and I have no idea how it's happening. My vet said that fleas can cause them--even though I've seen no fleas in my house! (I ripped out carpet, to put in laminate floors throughout the house for this reason--and also because one of my guys urinated on the carpet.) Now, the fleas WERE on the foster strays I took in last summer--they were quarantined upstairs--but I guess the fleas traveled on us, without us seeing or feeling them (or they come inside from outside that way). And I care for my cats very well; they are not neglected nor abused, I can assure you! I also try to keep a very clean house, so it doesn't make sense--but I have seen the worms on the cats, and took them to the vet, so the vet is not making up the fact they had tapeworms. (Actually, even though I had all of my 9 treated for worms, I only saw them in 2 of the cats.)
