    I am curious about this myself, after 4-5 years without a cat I recently adopted 2 kittens that appear wormy....

    Strongid (pyrantel pamoate) works on cats [​IMG] It pretty much works on everything...except tapes.

    For tapeworms, you can get praziquantel OTC.

    Strongid is only indicated for rounds and hooks. Panacur (safeguard) is a wider spectrum, but I don't know if it gets rounds. You can use the goat suspension. I don't have the dosage handy, but its easily googled.
