I was spading through the soil today to prep a bed for planting and there were buckets and buckets of earthworms. Probably 2-5k worms in one bed.

  1. Your cat has internal worms, when they have an infestation the worms will leave the cats anus. You should really treat the cat ASAP, if the worms are leaving the body he is badly infested.

  2. Those are dried up Tapeworm segments. If you have a regular Vet just call them and they will dispense the proper medicine for your cat. You should also treat your cat for Fleas since they get the Tapeworms from ingesting a Flea during grooming.

  3. Gross, it will either be flea larvae or worms. Get some Frontline or Advantage from your local vet clinic. It kills the fleas, the eggs and the larvae. Also get some broad spectrum dog wormer.
