I usually clean the litter box in the morning before work and then in the evening when I get home (it's like she doesn't want to "go" while Im there- ITA with the "potty in privacy" ethos.) ANYWAY, I was cleaning the litter box, and hadn't put the lid back on, when Kat used it. No problem, I went to scoop, and saw a worm! maybe 2 (long , white, thin, GROSS) in her stool.
I think it's roundworm. Im guessing this isn't enough to justify a trip to the emergency vet, but no ones open until MONDAY!
She was a stray, I only got her @ a month ago, but I never noticed this before...... could it just be because it was fresh? and- does the pet store or maybe TSC sell dewormer for this kind of worm? or do I have to wait until Monday??
I have to say, last night, I did notice her belly was rounded, but I just thought she was finally settling in and eating well. She's also in heat (it doesn't rain, but it pours!). She's got an appointment Feb 27 to be spayed. will worms/meds affect that?
