...Mosquitos? I recently found what looked like tiny tiny tadpoles (worms) swimming in my cats water fountain. Could this be from a mosquito as they look like a picture I saw or should I contact my vet?

Do you keep the water dish outside or do you have mosquitoes regurally in your house? If so, it's pretty likely. Mosquitoes are attracted to any stagnant water, even a water dish. Make sure that you are regurally rinsing out the bowl or even consider purchasing a cat "water fountain" with moving water to deter larvae:

When it is very hot outside,it can happen that insects lay eggs in the water,what you need to do is change the water 2 or 3 times a day when it is so warm.

hope i helped
