1/4" worms in cat's stool.

I asked about these worms yesterday and was given the answer of round worms.Which I am grateful for, but the problem is, they aren't even an inch long. They are between 1/8 and 1/4 of an inch. I asked about them in this question.

    Tapeworms eggs look like grains of rice. When they are excreted and dry out, they will break open and infest whatever area they are excreted in. The worms can infect humans, so always handle the cats litter or feces with gloves on. Actual pieces of tapeworm or roundworms are a little longer and can be seen moving in the stool. In any case, if you've actually noticed worms in your cat's stool, it needs worming medication asap.
