How to make cat paw print
Phoebe Cates was walking her cats when she noticed something peculiar: her cats were carrying around the cat paw prints that were left by the worms.
It was not a coincidence, Cates said.
The worms had been laying their eggs in cat paw patches, and when they burrowed into the pet’s skin, the eggs were deposited.
But how did the worms manage to escape their nests?
The answer was a simple but intriguing puzzle.
The parasites, which are known as helminths, feed on their hosts’ sweat glands, and, if they were to invade the cat’s body, they would immediately start producing a sticky fluid that would attach itself to the host’s skin.
That sticky substance would then spread to other parts of the host, where the worms would hatch.
This would allow the worms to get to the next stage in their life cycle, when they would attach themselves to the cat.
It is believed that the worms can also survive in soil and water.
If so, they could be present in cat paws, where they could form the foundation for their worm-infested homes.
The researchers, from the University of Illinois in Urbana-Champaign, then turned their attention to the worms that the cats had been eating.
They collected the worms and sent them back to the lab to be tested for helminth infection.
What they found was intriguing.
They found that the worm parasites were present in the cat saliva and urine, as well as in the body fluids of the cats.
In fact, in the urine, the worms were almost all found at the same level.
In the cat feces, the presence of the worms was even more pronounced.
So the scientists thought the worms may have been getting into the cat and, with the help of a cat’s saliva, had somehow made their way to the dog’s mouth.
“We thought, if the worms are doing it, maybe it’s in the dog, maybe the dog is doing it,” Cates told The Wall St. Journal.
In a study published online by the journal Science Advances, the researchers found that worms in the mouth of a dog were able to get into the mouth and begin producing the helminthal-infected poop.
They also showed that worms could also get into cats’ mouth, which is where the parasites would be most likely to infect.
The worm parasites can infect the hosts’ hair follicles, which they then attach themselves and lay eggs in.
When the eggs hatch, the larvae would grow and begin to live in the host.
But once the parasites attach to the hair follicle, they cannot escape.
The eggs then hatch into the pupa stage.
The pupa would eventually hatch and grow into a worm, which would then pupate into a cat.
The presence of parasites in the cats’ body fluids may be an important clue to how they manage to survive long in captivity.
In addition to the helminioth worms, there are other types of worms in cats that are known to survive and infect other animals.
There are worms that are found in the blood of cats, and the presence in saliva of worms that can attach themselves inside the mouths of other animals has also been reported in the laboratory.
But it is unknown if other kinds of worms are also present in cats.
The new study suggests that the parasites may be responsible for the worms’ survival in cats’ saliva and in their urine.
