how long do tapeworms live outside a cat's body?
My cat has tapeworms. All the previous posts have been very very helpful. I was just wondering how long do the pieces of the tapeworm (that fall out my cat's butt) stay alive? Or are they alive? I know they carry eggs--so, does this mean I should steam vacuum my apartment, my sheets, anything else that my cat has laid on? My poor cat. He's been acting different lately, I guess it might be the worms.
And, gross. Poor Brutus. He looks like he knows he has something nasty crawling out of his butt.
