This was her first litter, is this normal?
I must start by saying, "No, this is not normal".
Many of you in the group will understand what I mean when I say that
this post sounds exactly like one of my own posts only 9 months or so
I feel for you.
I was a breeder of Birmans & Ragdolls, & I said everything that you
have just posted too. I also understand your outrage with cyber,
because I felt exactly the same way that you do, then. However, I
decided to stick around and keep reading & posting, if only to further
my knowledge of cats in general, & talk to other people regarding cat
issues, that I wouldn't normally have been able to had I not bothered
The reason I didn't like her remarks and took them personally was
because I felt they were rude & directed @ me personally. I was wrong
there & I can see that now. It is simply frustration of people asking
the same question time & time over. But I couldn't see that @ that
I had been breeding for several years before coming here with a
problem with one of my Queens, who turned out to have ringworm in the
end. It took me roughly 5-6 months of reading to understand that *I
was part of the problem.*.
I have since done what you are deciding to do right now & I applaud
you for that.
I am going to show you a photos that was posted to me when I announced
that I had decided to give up breeding, for guilt, love, & being able
to live with myself too.
Now this poster could have posted this [email protected]
any time in all of the 5
months that I had been posting, asking advice & adding my own
contribution: in fact anyone here could have posted it, had they
really wanted to hurt my feelings.
Believe me when I tell you that no one would choose to hurt your
feelings here. It is merely frustration @ the same question being
asked time & time over. People here can't see your cat, so it would be
highly irresponsible to tell you what was right, or wrong, based on a
few lines of writing.
However, your vet does know your queen, so It would be best for you to
talk to him / her., & decide where you go from here.
Finally, I am so sorry that you went through this. No one deserves to
cope with miscarriages, be they feline or human
Now this really made me look @ life differently. Phil could have
posted this any time he chose to.. but he didn't, he waited until I
saw my own mistake, & I thank him for that.
I wish both you & your cats well. Please believe me when I tell you
that it is better to love your cats & loose her kittens, than it is to
loose both, because this is what you face if you allow her to become
If you look up the word pyometra, you will understand that what I tell
you is true.
Good Luck & Best wishes,
