Been trying for days and still can't post on the original thread re kittens born dead.

Failure to conceive, partially reabsorbed kittens, small litter (especially when it's a proven queen who normally has a good number), stillbirths can all point to a uterine infection. Chlamydia in cats is often seen as a URI but just as in humans it is suspected that it can be an STD. Just as in in humans it can appear symptomless, festering away and causing a myriad of fertility problems.

This isn't, as far as I know, a proven 'fact' yet, mainly because it's almost impossible to test for the disease in cats carrying it as an STD but vets are far from averse to precribing Doxycyline for cats which have a history of any of the above. So although only anecdotal at present, a course of the right antibiotic seems to solve such problems in many cases.

Thank you toadvs, i have only just found the time to see this post i did tell the lady she should ask her vet what he thought, and also if Chlamydia can it be passed to the stud cat,i think shes worried it might have passed to the stud she took the cat to, and there might be repercussions if so :?
I havent heard anything back yet,she said she was going to take the cat to be spayed now, one of the kittens was born with its intestines on the outside, it was dead,but the other 2 died within a few days :(

It's such a shame when people resort to having a potentially good cat spayed in despair.

There's as much chance the stud cat passed it to the queen as the other way round and he'll have got it from some other girl. If a girl had been into my boy and this was the result I'd be furious if I wasn't told so i could treat my boy as a precaution. This is exactly how it's being passed around half the breeding population and there's no blame involved. There are no outward signs. If only people would talk to each other instead of looking to point the finger we could probably eradicate the problem.

The forum is very frustrating just recently Penny, I have experienced the same :?
My brothers rescue kitten had chlamydia and he had very obvious eye symptoms like Veejay says - perhaps all cats are different :?

Yes Clamydia causes sticky eyes, the mother is easily treated 7 days prior to the birth, it causes fading kittens. Penny :D

It has only been this thread so the threads must have contained a word that is commonly used by scammers or the like that I have previously blocked. Penny :D
