Transmission of Tape Worms in a Kitten?

So I got this kitten about 2 mos. ago, but I'm not sure how old she was when I got her. She got fleas really badly, we're still battling on that front, but I think we're winning. Now the other night I noticed these teeny tiny worms crawling on my mattress (which she is always lounging on). To say I was freaking out doesn't quite cover it! My husband, "Mr. I lookedituponline", says they're cat tape worms and I can't get them from the kitten. Needless to say I would like a second opinion. Please help!

Please take your kitten to a vet for a diagnosis of the worms and neceassary treatment. The "worms" will not disappear without medication. You can also ask the vet if you might have contracted something from your kitten. Note that the vet should be better able to answer your question than a people doctor. A people doctor may not know what your kitten's problem is and will not be able to answer your questions.

Yes people can get tapeworms! Wash your Linens don't let the cat sleep with you until a week after she has a tapeworm medication on board.
