William the Cat gets worms. Animated. Illustration by Lynn Chang.

Monrovia, California–This story is true and particularly disgusting. So if you get grossed out easily, do not read on. I can guarantee you won’t like it. William, a grey, striped, blue tabby was found with worms today. This was evidenced by a worm coming out of his bum that resembled a piece of rice, except it moved in a particularly revolting manner. Why? Why? must it look like rice I ask you?

Thankfully this will be remedied soon by picking up some medication at William’s vet which thankfully can be purchased without having William present. The vet’s office declined my offer to bring in a worm sample.
