How can I tell if my cat has worms?

Sometimes, trying to tell if your cat has worms can be very difficult. One of the most common types of worm that a cat can have, he contracts from fleas; they're called tapeworms. Tapeworms look like little rice granules. Sometimes, as your cat's walking away with his tail up in the air, you may see this little white thing literally crawling out of your cat's bum: this is a definite sign of worms. Or, if you see what looks like little sesame seeds dried to your cat's derriere, this is another sign of tapeworms. Take a stool sample in and your cat in to the vet. Have your cat de-wormed at least once a year.
