(I hate to go into details but it's a fact of being a cat owner) Sometimes she would scoot her rear on the floor if one was Hanging out and it would end up on the carpet... I know, it's gross but it happens. Keep an eye out on them both and see who could have them and treat it accordingly. They can pass the worms back and forth very easily. Say you rid them of one cat but the other one had them worse and it's taking longer, the other cat could very easily give them back to the other one. It's a cycle you have to watch carefully... don't mean to alarm you, I just know what I went through with Reilly and Tiger...
Tapeworms...the segments come out all wiggly out of their anal region.
But as for a maggot story, we had taken in a stray and very feral cat (who we ended up having to let back outside for a number of reasons.) One being he was attacking my daughter viciously.....beyond help.
Well after he took off (and we never saw him again). He wouldn't let anyone touch him either......anyways.
We would notice pieces of meat missing....never thought anything of it figuring he took it and he had eaten it.
I had a bag of old maternity clothes and we were going through things preparing for a move and inside the bag was a rancid piece of meat covered in slimey squirmy maggots.....and also solved the mystery smell we had been smelling for a week.
I can't remember if we let him outside or if he ran out the door and never came back...several of the strays we'd take in when we lived on base would do that.....it is sad.
