Cats that are bred indoors have lower rates of contracting intestinal parasites compared to those that are bred outside. However, it is still possible for the cats to get worms, which they can collect from the consumption of prey animals or through exposure to contaminated feces.

Yes actually, fleas carry round worm larva. So if your cat has had fleas it can also have round worms.
