  • There are so many worms that cats can get. The most common are tapeworms, hookworms, roundworms. Its sounds like tapeworms that your cat has. The are white and come out of his anal. They are caused by fleas. The only way you can get rid of them is going to the vet and getting a prescription dewormer. The dewormer over the counter will not work. I am a registered Vet Tech if your were wondering. Yes your cat can get fleas in the winter!! Plus you need to get your cat on Flea preventative.

  • Sounds like tape worm they look like little tiny white piece's you are better off to take them to the vet to clear them up they get them from eating flea's and other dead animals I have a barn cat who gets them at least once a yr. You can buy the meds from the store but that doesn't always work and the meds for round worm wont help either. HTH

  • It sounds like tape worms which means he probably has fleas or has had them and swallowed one. I would get him on flea prevetative from the vet and a dewormer from them.
