It's definitely not a tapeworm. The 2 cats out at the other house each had a tapeworm a couple months ago that we had to treat. Tapeworms are bigger and flat. These worms are white, and are about as wide as a grain of rice, but they are longer. This particular cat doesn't use the litterbox (she poops outside) so it's harder for me to tell, but there were definitely 2 sticking about a half inch out of her butt the other day, and they were wiggling around. So I freaked and called the vet. The vet gave me bags with the syringes already measured out with the right amount for each cat. It doesn't specifically say what it is. It just says it's Strongid Liquid. It's an oral treatment that I give them once now, and once again in 2 weeks. I haven't seen worms since I gave it to her, but I'm sure they're still there. They don't have fleas either, they get flea treatment every month, and I've actually been flea combing just to check because one of my cats seems to be scratching a little more than normal. I know what your talking about with the tapeworm though, I saw a couple segments on the other cats behind, and took them to the vet and they told me it was tapeworm, those were flat segments though, these things look like something pooped them out, but they're really small and white with a pinkish tint.
