post #1 of 25
Thread Starter 
last night i noticed that the kitten moves much less and this morning i brought moma and the kitten to the vet and he said kitten has no chanse, he tried to feed the kitten but it didnt work, the kitten died right there.... vet said it might be internal problems that caused that. im about to cry.... this is so upsetting, its like my own child just died..... he said the kitten was way too small and considering that the was only one kitten its really weird why the kitten was so small, now mama walks around and cries looking for the kitten everywhere......
i dunno what to do.....

Sorry to hear about your loss. Try calling the shelters in your area about your momma fostering babies, if she still has milk and this is something you are willing to do.

Sweetheart, it is not your fault. Sometimes little ones are born with problems that we can not see, but that cause them to pass away. I know it hurts so badly, but I know that you are the kind of person that would not want the little one to suffer. Hugs and more hugs.

Aw I'm so sorry to hear you lost the little baby!

I'm sorry you lost this tiny baby! Poor Momma, to be missing her kitten. I guess my best advice, after offering her as a foster Momma, is to get her spayed so she never has to go through this again.
Condolences.

awww... I'm sorry you have to go through this and I hope mama kitty heals soon over her loss...

I am so sorry for your loss of the little kitten. We recently lost one too, but like others have suggested, perhaps your mum cat could find it in her heart to foster some poor babies who don't have any mums to take care of them. Sending prayers and good vibes to you and momma

Do you mean that you are going to try to breed your cat again? After this I would really recommend that you have her spayed. There are lots of groups that need fosters of pregnant cats and cats with young kittens. That may be the route to go.

Truth is...I don't know...but it's concerning to me that her first kitten was so sick. I don't recall if you ever shared how your cat became pregnant....was she purposely bred?

Did you mention wanting to breed her again to your vet?

vmf, while I can certainly understand that you want to allow your girl to become pregnant again, what you are proposing is called "backyard breeding". Is your cat pedigreed and registered with a legitimate registry organization and are you an experienced, responsible, ethical, knowledgable breeder well-versed in animal husbandry? If not, then what you are doing amounts to breeding simply to produce kittens. That should NEVER be the goal of allowing cats to reproduce. This is not something we here at TCS support, nor do we at all encourage it.

TNR and the other posters here have given you what I consider to be excellent advice. You should check with the local shelter or rescue organization where they may be orphaned kittens needing a mother's love - your girl could provide that to them and you would have the lovely addition of kittens to care for until they went to their forever homes. It would be the best of both worlds.

I strongly urge you to reconsider your decision to let this girl become pregnant again. Spay her.

Please don't breed your cat again, please get her desexed. What happens if you end up with 8 next time? and not just one dead one.
post #14 of 25
VMF, i thinkn yuo should let her have kittens, i know u had a bad experience, but it will get better. U'll never see anyhitng better than your own little girl given birth to her own little babies, I don't theink spaying is the way to go. Just my imput. I say let her be a mom. She'll be fine
post #15 of 25
If you end up with more than one, love them all, and if you decide your home isn't the best place for them yuo can always find another loving family. Don't let ur cat have her one baby dyign be her last memory of being a mom! that would be HORRIBLE, then she'll think ur punishing her? I thk you should let nature takes her course, if she gets pregnant then she gets pg, if not then its for the rite cause.

I know that your heart is breaking right now, but based on what you have posted, I would be inclined to spay this mama cat right now. There are several reasons for this- 1. Next time she could have more kittens, and more deaths (could your heart stand for multiple deaths?) 2. It will help stop some of her grieving and 3. She will go into heat very soon because of the birth/death and could come up pregnant again.

Those are some of the reasons that this cat should just live in the comfort of your love, and not be a momcat. Cat's get pregnant easily- but not all cats are destined to be momcat of the year-

the reason why i want her to get pregnant is because i want to leave one kitten to me and a lot of my friends/relatives what to have a kitten from her and her husband her husband is also a big siamese male, i'm not doing it to make money or anything like this, im doing it because i want to keep one or 2 of her kittens for myself and give away the rest to ppl who asked for it. vet said we definetly can try again, if not with the same male then with another. i will give it one more try and if its not going to work then i might have to spay her....
but i really dont want to, i want my cat to be all natural, with claws and not spayed. its against the nature ways imho to spay the cat.

Spaying her will not affect her claws.... if anything, it will be more healthy for her

There are actually many benefits to your cat's health to have her spayed.

Katie

BENEFITS YOU
Spaying and neutering can eliminate or reduce the incidence of a number of serious health problems that can be difficult or expensive to treat.
Spaying and neutering can make pets better companions.
Neutering cats makes them less likely to spray and mark their territory with pungent urine.
Spaying a dog or cat eliminates her heat cycle. Estrus lasts an average of six to 12 days, often twice a year in dogs and an average of six to seven days, three or more times a year, in cats. Cats in heat can cry incessantly, and dogs and cats in heat may appear nervous and may attract unwanted males.
Neutering can make pets less likely to roam, run away, or get into fights.
Unsterilized animals often exhibit more behavior and temperament problems than do those that have been spayed or neutered.
Neutering may make dogs less likely to bite.


BENEFITS YOUR PET
Spaying and neutering helps cats and dogs live longer, healthier lives.
Spaying eliminates the possibility of uterine or ovarian cancer and greatly reduces the incidence of breast cancer, especially when your pet is spayed before her first heat.
Spaying can prevent various reproductive tract disorders
Neutering eliminates testicular cancer and decreases the incidence of benign prostate disease.


BENEFITS YOUR COMMUNITY
An estimated 8-10 million animals are taken in by animal shelters each year
An estimated 4-5 million animals are euthanized in shelters each year
The stray/feral cat population is estimated to be in the tens of millions
Communities spend millions of dollars to control unwanted animals.
Animal shelters are overburdened with surplus animals.
Stray pets and homeless animals may get into trash containers, defecate in public areas or on private lawns, and frighten or anger people who have no understanding of their misery or needs.

My name is Stacey and I have to agree with the others, your cat needs to be spayed. The miricle of birth is great but when you go into all the animals shelters and see all the babies having to be put down everyday you will understand why we are saying what we are. Their are just too many kittens out there and intentionally adding more is only adding to a horrible problem..pet overpopulation.
I just started a kitten rescue in my area.....and I feel your pain. Thursday night and then last night I lost two kittens that were found in someones yard. It is hard & I am sorry you are going through it. I know most shelters are soooo overcrowded they would welcome your help. If you think your cat could feed a litter I am sure they would love it. If you don't want to do that, what about you offering to be a foster home for kittens.
I am despertly looking for foster homes in my area and would love nothing more than having someone as sweet as you sound offering to help me.
It is great and you are saving lives that might otherwise never have a chance.

Good luck and please keep us updated.

My opinion is to get her spayed. If you and your friends/family want kittens so bad, the best way to go about that is to visit your local shelter. It's kitten season, so if you go today you could bring one home today! You'd be saving a kitten's life, who is already alive and needing a home.

Why risk going through the trouble of putting your cat through another unneccesary pregnancy, just to get kittens. There are easier/better ways.

You say you want your cat to be all natural, but breeding her on purpose is not.

So sorry about your loss. I would probably do the same thing in giving this mama cat another try at it before getting her spayed. I also think that fostering kittens was a good idea, I might try both - if you're up to all that. I can also understand how you must feel, & how worried you must be about suffering that same heartache again, along w/ your mama cat. It's a tough call. My thoughts & prayers are w/ you, & wish you & your mama cat the very best.

So why not work with a reputable breeder?? I'm sure that Gaye could help you find one. Even if your cat is a siamese...does not mean she should be bred and I am concerned about her health after having lost this little one. There is a wonderful rescue group that places siamese cats and kittens:
