native...if money is an issue (vets are damn expensive!) contact one of the rescue agencies for felines in your area and explain your situation. Often
they can and will help with vet bills as they have accounts with vets and sometimes can get help for a pet owner who's on hard times. They may also
have someone experienced enough that can come out and help you make a determination whether Kitty needs to go the vet or if a simple treatment like a
tapeworm pill or mite treatment will do the trick (they often have these pills and treatments in their stock).
Here in Vancouver the resucers will often help out regular pet owners having money troubles and many seniors rely on the extra help as they can't get
out to the vet all the time with the kitties or dogs due to their health.
Just search for a few rescue organizations online in your area and shoot them an email explaining your dilemma.
We all fall on hard times at one point or another and there are great people out there who can help out when needed, you just need to ask.
Try to ignore the jerks and just do what's best for the kitty and yourself...call a rescuer who can drop by and check out kitty and they'll likely
be able to give kitty the tapeworm treatment right on the spot
Please do this as I know (as a former rescuer) that they will help out!!
