Suggestions for deworming a feral cat
We have a feral cat in our yard who visits us throughout the day, every day. A male, approx 1.5 years old. About two months ago I trapped him, had him neutered, vaccinated, and dewormed. I feed him well. He's gained weight, his fur looks good, and overall he appears healthy. About a week ago I noticed his butt looked a bit raw and irritated. Today I saw him scooting across my lawn. I know this can be caused by several things, but I'll take a conservative approach for now and assume he has worms of some kind.
He's friendly enough that he will come to me when he sees me but does not want to be petted and I don't push the issue. So my question is: how do I treat this guy for worms if I can't get him to a vet?
