    It came from the cat ...

    About 1/2" long when stretched out. Not sure if it was coughed up or exit stage rear.

    No, but I've had a fair amount of experience with cats.

    Probably a tapeworm, probably acquired by eating a flea, probably exited kitty through the back door.

    Take kitty, any worms you've collected, and a stool sample (from the cat, not you) to the vet. It's an easy cure, but home worming methods are not reliable.
