Tammy I would want to bleach my whole house! But when you think about it, these are natural things, and they will be okay! (your animal children!) : )

When Bailey was a little puppy he had worms, but they only came out when he took a round of worm meds and then he would poop them out. They looked like actual worms though but a little smaller. I had to pull a live worm out of his bum with a plastic bag once...that was sick! I know that when I was at the vet, there are several different types of worms that look different...they had a poster on the wall which I studied in detail....I have heard about the rice looking worms before though...I don't blame you for wanting to disinfect! They are so small and it's hard to see them...worms are more dangerous to children cause they can get really sick from them. Pets just get worms if they are in contact, but it doesn't make them sick as far as I know.

[shudder] Seriously. Wow, Tammy, that is gross. I have no words of advice, cuz I dont know anything about worms, but I can sympathize with not being able to think about anything else and feeling dirty.

Note to self...If I start craving chinese food, come read this and go eat a salad. Yucky. You'll get it cleaned up for sure. I know you have the crazy expensive power vaccum. God you deserve one heck of a medal for what you do Tammy :)

Tammy,

 

I'm so sorry about the worms. Yes, its gross and nasty but easy to fix. In the meantime, swear off the rice and hire a cleaning lady!!! I guess the good thing is that the worms are dead right? Anyway, we have put our dog on a regular deworming schedule with all the fosters we get in. We deworm the fosters three times and sometimes they still need more....eeeewwww. Just a suggestion so your own pups don't get the worms.

Yuck! I rescued/fostered a cat for a few months and have a similar story, but not quite as intense. I had just cooked spiral macaroni and cheese, ate it as fast as I could and then noticed something on the ground. It looked exactly like a piece of noodle had fallen out of the pan before I mixed the cheese, milk and butter in. I bent over to pick it up and it started wiggling and spread out double it's size. I like you, totally flipped out. I had taken the cat to the vet a day or two before hand, had her de-wormed and apparently some of them crawl out durring/after the process. I searched my apartment high and low for little white worms, I vaccumed, scrubbed, stripped my bed, and then did it all again. I was totally OCD about it, and felt like they were crawling everywhere. I wouldn't worry about your other animals eating them. I think that once you scrub down your house and vaccum, it will take care of it. I would keep your little foster guy confined maybe to the bathroom or something for a few days, until the worms are out of his system. BTW, I still can't eat spiral macaroni and cheese. Good luck!

OMG that is sooooo gross!!!! I never knew that worms just fell out... sick.

 

What are you going to do with him until the worms are gone? I think I'd put him in one little area without carpet and crazy vacuum that area, until his worms are gone. There is no way I'd let him wonder the house dropping worms everywhere. Bluck.

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
