Bert and Ernie

i think my kittens may have worms. more specifically, bert has them, although his brother probably does now as well.
currently skeeved out.

(GRAPHIC AND SLIGHTLY RAMBLE-Y DUE TO THE TIME OF NIGHT)
they went to the vet for the first time on Friday, on my way home to NY from PA for the weekend. had their first set of shots and a de-wormer. bert had a rough time with it, not wanting me to touch him and flinching away from me for the 24 hours following, (which was rough, he IS my little cuddler...)but returning to normal this past afternoon. however, i noticed tonight, his butt looks sore. then, as i was scooping the litter box, i found what looked like a piece of string. then it occurred to me that it may be, and most likely is, a worm. thus, my current state of slight panic and worry. to be as juvenile as possible-ew.

vet is currently 3.5 hours away, although i am planning on heading home tomorrow. do vets have office hours on Sundays? probably not-and dammit, i know that worms aren't an EMERGENCY-most kittens come with them, and this is most likely just a side effect of the wormer-he's passing the adults that were in his system, and he'll just need to be re-wormed in a few weeks to completely wipe them out. the biology major in me knows this. but the rest of me....is just saying EW.
