I feel so bad for my Jordan. Not only does he have the acne thing, but I'm almost 100% positive he's got worms. I've been noticing these little white things that look kind of like grains of sand on his but once in a while. Well tonight I saw two of them the first one didn't move so I didn't think much of it, but the second one did move. I don't know if it will be of any help, but I sealed it in a plastic bag to take to the vet's office with us on Wedness day & I'm going to do my best to get stool samples from both of them. From a book on cat health I have it looks like a tape worm which would make sense because he was so flea infested when he was found the people who brough him to us had given him like 5 flea baths & we still gave him one at the shelter. At any rate I'm wondering how contagous tape worms are from cat to cat & cat to people. They boys share a little box, a water bowl & they have two food bowls but you know they eat out of which ever one strikes their fancy. So do I need to worry about Levi too? Also, since they were in a foster home should I inform the foster Mom about the worms assuming since he's been with me only 3 1/2 weeks & been inside the whole time he must have had them before he came here? Especially since I noticed the first little white thing after he'd been here 2 weeks? Any ideas or info?
