That should have read  'in a canned Sardine' - take it out of the can obviously!

Go to the vet, ask for a multi wormer for cats. Tell them approximately how much the cat weighs. Do not over worm - get the correct tablet for the cats weight.

Tricks to get puss to eat the pill can include hiding it in middle of a smallish morsel of:

Triangle cheese / other cheese

Pate

Rillete (it's similar to potted pork)

In a can Sardine (the Sardines in the tomato sauce go down well)

Or any other treat puss likes.

Its probably a good idea to take the cat to a vet for a health check as it could save you money in the future.  If you tell the vet it is a stray which you are prepared to take in they might not charge too much but will be able to access the cat and give you an idea of any problems it may have.  The vet will also be able to advise on worm tabs, flea treatment and annual vaccinations for  flu etc.  Good luck with your new furry friend.

Just a tip that may help you administer the tablets.

Our cat will never take them and even massaging neck aftwards regurgitates them.

We crush them between 2 spoons and then lace a bit of tinned tuna - job done woofed down.

We've had a number of cats over the years and worming tablets are the only thing I have found difficult to administer - they seem o hate them more than any other medication.

Fortunately they now do a spot on wormer - admnistered to the skin in the back of the neck usually.

 

As the ast poster mentioned - you need the right strength medicatio for the weight of cat

You can buy it cheaply on line at several places...here is one to try

Best to go to your vet.  If it is a kitten the tablet is around 3€ or 6€ for an older cat.  You probably won't need to take the cat with you.
