|Oh my, that IS a load of crap. The animal should be healthy when you adopt them, if not then you should have been made aware of any pre exisitng problems or conditions. How unfair.
I have not had tapeworm experience with cats, but the dog I saved had an insane tapeworm that he literally strung across my HUGE yard. I had to work hard to get rid of it, it took a few months actually of all the damned segments, on the carpet, his kennel, constantly cleaning to make sure nobody ingested a segment since we have a house full of animals. His tapeworm was around 10 ft long, and let me tell you.. I was VERY unprepared for the entire thing to come out at once!
I found this, herbal treatments are easy to make at home and cost sometimes pennies! http://www.ehow.com/facts_6828323_holistic-homemade-tapeworm-pet-rem edy.html
I used garlic and yogurt for my dog. But I know herbals well, and do not recomend this. Dislodging the tapeworm all at once can cause it to collect in one spot and cause a blockage requiring surgery.
That tapeworm your kitty has is crazy, I did some research and it actually says to check the vet manual for treatment. :o
Good luck, and I hope this helps. I would seriously be asking for SOME sort of reimbursement from that organization you got your cat from.
