I think my cat had a miscarriage

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
I am a Siamese breeder. I have been breeding and showing CFA siamese for 2 years. I thought that my seal point Peanut was pregnant. I thought that she was in the very early stages of pregnancy. Like only 2 or 3 weeks. Today she started bleeding. It was not very much maybe 3 or 4 oz. I have never had a cat that had a miscarriage before. She is fine now. Does it sound like a miscarriage to everyone?

Megmar....Probably so, but it's best to let your vet assess the situation. It's always a good idea to follow up with a vet visit in case antibiotics become necessary and to get a clean bill of health.

In my breeding books it says that you should take her to a vet to make sure she has had all the fetuses out of her. It also says it can be a sign of in-breeding, I'm not saying that's the case, just what the book says.

I have CFA registered siamese. I have their geneologies. They are not from the same lines at all. My male is actually from New Zealand.
Should she pass dead kittens even though she as only a couple of weeks preganant.

I can't seem to find anything about that. Hopefully a breeder will come along and tell you. I'm still studying the whole thing and I am by no means an expert.

No offense about the lines intended I was just telling you what I found, I know you are CFA registered. Another forum I am a member of say that although it is unsual it can happen but that they would give her another chance at it. They also say that it could be an infection. I'll keep looking to see if she will pass anything.

Im really sorry about your girl.

I will give her another chance. Sorry, I did not mean to sound mad. I just wanted you to know that I am not a backyard breeder. I think that she miscarried because this is her first litter and my male just turned one year. At least I know that my male is does not have any fertility problems. Peanut my female will be 2 in Nov.

No worries (as Aussie's say) I know a lot of registered breeders can get a hard time from people jumping to conclusions. I think its better now as everyone had a good talk about it in a thread started by gayef in the cat lounge.

Do you have any pics of your girl?

It might be wise to have a vet check her. But I've heard of cats bleeding a little tho pregnant and all was fine. Don't take a chance tho - have her checked out for her health and your peace of mind

Peanut is doing fine. All of the bleeding stopped and she is acting like her normal self. Does anyone know if I could try again in her next heat? She was very very early on when she lost them .Her nipples were not even red yet. I was not even 100% sure that she was pregnant until the misscarriage. So she was only about 2 or 3 weeks preggers. Does anyone know if it is safe?

We've only had one cat miscarry-out American Bobtail as I found the fetus's stick on my bathrobe (gross!!) Bob's however developed a uterine infection and became sterile from this. I would get your cat checked at the vet. (we had discharge that's why we knew something was up.

I'd have a vet check her out completely for any infections, etc. before you attempt to breed again. Hopefully she will stay out of heat in the next few months. If she's got a clean bill of health, maybe breed her around January or when she comes into heat around that time.

Sorry about the loss. I suggest you post the question about when to breed again on the breeders board. Many of us on the kitten board are fosterers or people with oops pregnancies, so we don't know so much about TRYING to get kittens! LOL! Mostly we are trying to prevent another litter!

I would get her vet checked, to be sure she isn't retaining anything, or needing antibiotics. The vet should also be able to recommend how long to wait for the next litter.

Have a vet check to make sure her uterus is normal, if he didn't do this at the checkup you had before you began breeding. You don't want to keep trying with a cat that has trouble having kittens in the first place.
