We've been away for a few days and DH has been in charge of the cat. DD has just called me into her bedroom to find tiny thread-like wriggly things all over a blanket the cat has been sleeping on Anyone got any idea what they might be? Have just dumped blanket, various toys and DD's bedding in the washing machine but cat sleeps on sofa too so off to get hoover out. Do I need to go into manic cleaning mode or not?
Iirc the threadworm medicine says you can't catch worms from animals - just soil and other people - but I would double check that. I have only seen flea eggs/poo/fleas I didn't know they did larvae too!
You can buy an aerosol spray thing from the vets that you can spray on your carpets etc. to stop the fleas from hatching. It is expensive but it will help stop your cat being reinfested and give you peace of mind! We used it when we moved house and realised there were fleas in our rug!!
(you can not put it directly on cat, for household use only)
