What are these my cat has in her faeces

Asked April 24, 2016, 4:53 AM EDT

I saw this on your site, but my cat did not vomit it up, it was in her faeces That is a free-living insect larva ingested by the cat. The cat ingested grass to induce vomiting. The larva was to pupate into a cocoon and emerge into an adult flying insect. It is not a worm. It is not a parasite or worm of cats. so is it the same and What can I get to clear it, she is a little stray cat that comes to us for food. I have two small dogs so worried about them, I live in France

I did not see an image of the worms. My best advice is to contact a veterinarian, take the fecal sample into them for their diagnosis and treatment.

Sorry I could not be of more help.
