Hi all, Pepe, one of our (now too many) cats, who is an outdoor cat (she was a stray), has worms! I am wary of giving her the worm medication that you can buy in the store b/c our first cat ever had worms and we gave it to him and he ended up dying, b/c it never got rid of them. Now here is my problem: Pepe is not one to actually get in a box or anything to get her to the vet to get it all fixed up. As she is an outside cat, is there anything that can be done so she doesn't get them anymore? Also her and her sister Zeb both had kittens about 2-3 wks ago, so when can I take her to the vet, and not have to worry about the babies? Should I get Pepe to the vet ASAP or is it ok to wait until the babies are old enough? Also when can I get her fixed? Do I have to wait until the babies are old enough to be weaned? I have wanted to, but both Pepe and Zeb are outside cats (strays), and I don't think either one of them would be crazy about going the vet to get fixed and leaving their babies behind. Never mind that it might be almost worth your life to get them into the box to get in the car and drive 1/2hr to the vet.....HELP!!!!
