Bring them both in to the vet for some proper treatment. The vet might agree to only charge for one office visit for the two of them, hopefully.
About the crying, I don't know. My kittens "cry" all the time, but they seem just to be needing attention, orphaned kittens also. They want their momma.
And here, take a look at this thread on the worms your kitten may have and the advice given.http://www.thecatsite.com/forums/sho...t=counter+worm
I just want to say a HUGE thank you to you Vik61
for posting that link!
Last night I was petting my baby, Rascal, he's 5 months, and suddenly on my hand I spotted something small, rubbery, gelatiny in appearance. I freaked out because I was convinced it was some kind of worm!
Well, I searched in this forum and found the link you had so kindly posted; and sure enough, I knew what I had seen and destroyed was a tape worm, the picture, especially left no doubt in my mind about it.
Of course, I brought both my babies to the vet this afternoon. They had tapeworms
. Well, that is taken care of now! So thank you once again for that link!
I do have a question though. I'm going to follow through with some Revolution tomorrow and I am going to treat the carpets, chairs, couches, etc. with some fleakiller powder, which I got at WalMart, the brand is "Enforcer, Flea Killer for Carpets", hope I made a good choice
followed by a thorough vacuuming. I am also currently washing my bathroom carpet which Rascal loves to "knead and suckle on" to make sure that is ok too.
How often should I do this treatment? Weekly, monthly? Just once? Will it be enough or should I get my carpets professionally cleaned? Also what about vinyl floors? Should I wash them with bleach (carefully and thoroughly rinshed afterwards, of course
What about our clothing ?
Any help would be appreciated! Thanks

P.S. So glad I found this forum!
