I just scheduled my 2 for a de-worming tomorrow, & I asked the lady if it was contagious cuz Mini sleeps with us. She said no, in other words, but it's not healthy, as in take care of it asap. I was talking to a guy at work about it, & he said he knew some people that got them, but they were REALLY scummy. They had like 5 cats, & kept the litter box near where they stored dry goods..they must have gotten into the food or something & the kids ended up with worms.
I think it is a given if you have more than one animal the vet would want to treat all of them. I have to take my 2 both at once, this should be one interesting afternoon!
I am pretty freaked out about it, too & will probably come home & start cleaning the entire apartment, thinking there are worm segments everywhere. Ugh!
