Why do you want to give dewormer to a feral cat colony?  Are they your pets?  If so, what you should be doing is bringing them to the vet for dewormer.  I never buy dewormer from the pet store, they usually make my cats sick. 

They are feral cats that I've TNR'd and now continue to feed. I can't keep trapping them to bring to a vet... so was hoping there was a medication out there that can be put in food, etc.

they should have dewormer at your local pet store!  Who knows, they may not get sick from it.  Try that.  Also, have you contact your local SPCA?  Normally they do stuff like that for free when its feral/stray cats.

Thanks Amanda... I did get de-wormer from a my vet and was able to separate each feral - took some work - but did it!  

Do you care for ferals?  Very very different from indoor pets!!

Thanks for taking the time to respond!

Most of my cats were feral - I took them all in, and yes it was difficult in the beginning because they are much different!  But I've had most of them for a few years now, so they're a bit more tame =)
