I am not sure about their worming schedule at this point- I took them in from 
another volunteer/rescuer b/c she was overloaded and they weren't getting 
proper care, so she has their records.  All were given Advantage before they 
came to me.  I'm pretty sure they got a deworming tho, b/c I know they give 
dewormer to kittens even smaller than these and I doubt the other volunteer 
would have had them in her house with her other cats w/o first deworming.  
Plus, I look for worms all the time and have never seen any.  
Do I need to take them to a vet?
