weird pebble things in bed. what are they??

Question: So our cat, Kiki, sleeps with us on the bed in between our heads. Lately I've been finding (in addition to cat hair!) these pebble things on the sheets where he lays. They kinda look like sesame seeds but are yellowish. I don't mean to sound gross, but you know the hard thing that squishes out when you squeeze a black-head? That's what they remind me of. I know they come from Kiki because when he doesn't sleep with us, I don't find them.
So what are they and how do we stop him from shedding them?

Thanks!

Can you take a picture? They sound like eggs of some kind

Sounds like a vet visit is in order.

My grandparents had the exact same thing happen with one of their dogs. They kept finding seed like stuff in the bed and couldnt figure it out. It was the tape worms some one else suggested.

Tapeworm... And it happens to even those cats who are always inside. Sasquasch was diagnosed yesterday as have a tapeworm & treated. He has never been out in the time I've had him and was to the vet last year for standard shots & check-up. Must have missed it.
Did you know that he can spit a pill across the room even if you hold his mouth closed? What a PIA to give a pill to.

LOL! I've never had to give Kiki a pill before, so I hope he doesn't do the same!
