Eww... For the last few days I've been seeing what looks like sesame seeds on my bed and couch. I couldn't figure out what was going on, but honestly, I didn't think much about it. Last night when my cat jumped off my lap I found a teeny, tiny worm on my leg. Ran to google. Turns out she has tape worms. I flipped her on her back to peek around...ahem...her goodies and also saw a single flea (of course there's more, I'm sure.) She's an indoor cat, not sure how she could have gotten fleas AND worms. Turns out those sesame seeds are actually tiny worm segments. They fall off and dry up :crosseyed. I'm so grossed out!! My cat sleeps with me (actually, on me most of the time, she's a total affectionate sweetheart.) My poor girl slept locked in the bathroom I frantically washed all my bed sheets and slept on the couch. Luckily tape worms are an easy fix, just a few over-the-counter pills, but unfortunately the closest pet store in town is 40 mins away.
