Hello,

Bless you for saving a shelter kitty!

I am sorry you found these maggot like things. They have nothing to do with Roger. They are as a result of a fly laying eggs.

all you need to do is clean the floor with a solution of one part bleach to 20 parts of water and you will not see them again.
