Questions about Cats Worms

  • Can I catch worms from my pet?
  • Only indirectly. Worm eggs are passed out in a pet’s faeces when it goes to the toilet. However, at this time, the eggs are not infective, so, as long as you clear up after your pet as soon as possible, there is no risk to you from worms. However, if you leave their faeces hanging around in the garden, the eggs will have a chance to mature and become infective. Worm eggs are very tough, and can remain infective in soil for a number of years. So, if you worm your pet regularly (every 3 months) and clear up after it, you should have nothing to worry about. The common type of worm that infects people (pinworm) is in no way connected to the worms that our cats and dogs carry.
