They can get tapes from rodents & certain insects, too. They are not the same 
tapes as they get from fleas, just as the tapes we get from pork are not the 
same.

look like kernels of rice....

There are different kinds of tapeworms. They can get them from fleas,
rodents, roaches, etc.

It is a great honor for the cat to bring you their "kill"...I've always
praised the cat then disposed of the item (sometimes this frustrates the
cat, so you have to decide if it's best to give it back so you don't have a
cat going nuts looking for the mouse he just brought you).  My mom's cat
Lucky is the best hunter I've ever seen: possum, rats, birds, etc.   Hard on
wildlife though.  Now he's "retired" and living indoors at my house.  He's
gotten a little fat, but otherwise seems fine with his new status.
I have to believe that the cat's body can deal pretty effectively with the
results to hunting, for the most part.  I know the world is different today
with the introduction by mankind of poisons to the environment.  Hopefully
we can help keep our cats healthy, even if we can't 100% control their
behavior.

Unfortunately, every time they kill wildlife and eat at least part of them,
they can become exposed to parasites, mainly roundworm......which means
using poisons to get rid of them....

Copper and Thomas like to go to the garage to hunt---farm, lizards, snakes
etc come in and need to be removed from the genetic pool---cats have
occupied the house for too long for them to have an excuse for coming in.  I
usually leave the door to the garage open so the boys can come and go.  They
love to bring me their trophies and will even bring them into our
bedroom....more often alive than dead.  I tell them how proud I am of them
and their hunting skills--and I really am.  Then I take their trophies out
to show all the world how great they are.  Cats...........aren't they
great?????
