Other symptoms of worms in cats may include:

What are the consequences of not treating internal parasites?
In some cases, apart from slight irritation, your pet may not be too concerned about a mild worm infestation.
However a number of internal parasites can be life threatening, particularly in large numbers. Some pets may even develop a hypersensitivity to worms, which can cause serious complications.
If you are concerned about your petís symptoms consult a holistic vet for advice before resorting to over-the-counter remedies.
How are worms usually treated?
When it comes to getting rid of worms many people head straight for over-the-counter treatments, many of which are excessively harsh and often less than effective. Some may even be harmful in the long run.
What is Heartworm?
Heartworm (Dirofilaria immitis) is a parasitic worm which infects mostly dogs. However, more vets are realizing that cats may also be infected with heartworm. Although all internal parasites can be harmful to the health of your pet, heartworm infestation is serious and can be fatal unless treated in time.
How can natural remedies help?
When it comes to your petís health, natural remedies are usually a good place to start.
Although a number of conventional de-worming treatments are very effective, most, if not all, are chemically-based and may be harmful to your pet in the long-term. Continual de-worming with conventional products may also weaken your petís immune system.
Holistic practitioners recognize that the whole animal should be treated to maximize health and reduce imbalance in the system caused by a variety of environmental and dietary stresses.
A combination of natural medicine, healthy diet and regular exercise will help to protect your pet against parasitic infection.
