What is Miscarriage?

Miscarriage in cats occurs when there is either a deliberate or unexplained termination of pregnancy in your cat. Miscarriage may be chemically induced under the supervision and/or advice of your vet. It can also occur for a variety or hormonal or physical reasons. If your cat is in the early stages of pregnancy, you may not notice any signs or symptoms and the fetuses may be reabsorbed by your cat’s body. In later stages, your cat may miscarry and then develop maternal instincts and behaviors, up to developing milk and crying or pacing, looking for kittens. If you expect your cat is miscarrying you should seek immediate veterinary care.

Symptoms of Miscarriage in Cats

The symptoms of miscarriage in your cat may be minor if the pregnancy is in the first several weeks. Generally, however, you will see noticeable signs of a miscarriage. These may include:

  • Bloody discharge
  • Disappearance of fetuses previously seen in ultrasound or felt via palpation
  • Abdominal straining
  • Discomfort
  • Depression
  • Dehydration
  • Fever
  • Delivery of premature, dead, or nonviable fetuses

Causes of Miscarriage in Cats

Miscarriage is a condition that may have a variety of underlying causes. While it may not always be possible, it is important to attempt to diagnose the underlying cause of the miscarriage to rule out potential infections or other conditions that may be life-threatening to your cat. Common causes include:

  • Infection
  • Feline leukemia virus
  • Feline herpesvirus
  • Bacterial disease such as chlamydia
  • Protozoal infections
  • Injury
  • Exposure to chemicals known to induce labor or miscarriage
  • Congenital defects
  • Inbreeding
  • Nutritional deficiencies
  • Severe stress
  • Hormonal imbalances

Diagnosis of Miscarriage in Cats

Diagnosis of miscarriage in your cat will begin with a thorough physical exam. If your cat has miscarried at home, you should arrange to bring the aborted fetuses with you for your vet to examine, if possible. The fetuses may provide important clues regarding the underlying cause of the miscarriage. In the initial visit, your vet may choose to order ultrasound or x-ray imaging in order to confirm there are no additional fetuses retained. Living fetuses may need support in order to avoid being miscarried and dead fetuses will need to be removed from the cat in order to avoid infection and potential death to your pet. These images will also rule out any injury to the internal organs of your cat.

During the initial exam, you should provide a thorough history of your cat’s pregnancy. Approximate date of impregnation and identity of the sire, if known, may be important facts for a proper diagnosis. Onset of symptoms and length of time of any unusual behavior such as lack of eating or your cat beginning to nest, will also be helpful.

Your vet will also order a full blood panel. This will allow your veterinarian to identify the presence of any infection and will provide an analysis of various hormone levels throughout your cat’s body. If there are signs of a cold or infection, various smears from the nose, ears and mouth should also be taken to potentially identify an upper respiratory or other type of infection. A stool sample may also be ordered in order to test for parasites.

Treatment of Miscarriage in Cats

Treatment of your cat after miscarriage will depend on whether she needs to be stabilized and the underlying cause of the miscarriage. In the event there are retained fetuses, your vet may administer drugs that cause contractions in your cat to help eliminate the remaining tissue. This will be conducted in your veterinarian’s office and will prevent your cat from becoming infected as the fetuses continue to break down inside of the uterus. 

In the case of infection, your vet may choose to prescribe a broad spectrum antibiotic pending identification of the exact bacteria causing the infection. If a cold is minor, they may recommend conservative treatment with rest and fluids. With parasites, your vet will prescribe an appropriate de-wormer. These are typically administered orally in the form of a paste, gel, or tablet.

If the underlying cause is injury, your vet may prescribe pain medication or anti-inflammatory medication to help your cat recover more quickly.

Finally, in some instances, your veterinarian may recommend spaying your cat to prevent future pregnancies. This is especially true if the miscarriage was caused by congenital defects, by hormonal abnormalities that cannot be easily corrected in future pregnancies, or after multiple miscarriages.

Recovery of Miscarriage in Cats

In most cases, your cat will recover well from a miscarriage as long as she receives proper treatment for the underlying condition. It will be important to administer all of the prescribed medications in the appropriate doses, especially in the case of infection. 

Some cats may need additional support if they seem depressed or lethargic or are pacing and acting agitated. In these cases it may be appropriate to isolate your cat in a quiet, warm and comforting space until the hormones triggered by the miscarriage and labor subside.

Overall, the prognosis for recovery from miscarriage in your cat is good and she should go on to live a long and healthy life.

How far along does a cats pregnancy have to be until it 'miscarries'?
Journee has been pregnant for 66 days and i know it can go to 72 so is it still possible for Journee to miscarry?

Dr. Callum Turner, DVM
Dr. Callum Turner, DVM
2973 Recommendations
Pregnancies of 70 days or more are uncommon with many cases being a calculation error by the owner; however there is no set time frame for a pregnancy to end and as long as Journee is doing well as eating I wouldn’t worry just yet. The length of a normal pregnancy is up to 67 days so she is still in the safe zone, I wouldn’t panic unless she shows signs of distress or sickness; if there has been no kittens by day 73 I would pop into your Veterinarian for a check up. Regards Dr Callum Turner DVM

She didnt try to clean them or nothing. But not she is acting weird. She i be worried for her life too? Its been 2 days since that happens

Thank you for your email. Given the signs that you describe in Panther, she should be examined by a veterinarian. It is possible that she did not deliver all of the kittens, and there may be a retained placenta or mummified kitten that is still in her uterus. She definitely needs medical attention if those things are happening.

Without examining Isis, I cannot say what the specific issue is or whether she has had a miscarriage or not; the presence of a blood discharge is always concerning and should be brought to the attention of a Veterinarian so that they can check to see if she is still pregnant or not since this may be an indicator of miscarriage or a pending miscarriage.

Dr. Michele King, DVM

The spots of blood may be normal, or may be a sign of a problem. Without examining Luna, I can't determine whether she has a problem or not, but if she is comfortable and acting normally otherwise, you may be able to continue to monitor her for her starting to have kittens. If she becomes lethargic, or stops eating or seems in distress, she should see her veterinarian right away. I hope that all goes well for her.

I think my cat was pregnant a year ago. She had all the signs but no babies. Its been a year and she still hasnt gone into heat? Could she still have the fetuses inside her? Shes also lactating now

Dr. Callum Turner, DVM
Dr. Callum Turner, DVM
2973 Recommendations
It sounds more like a false or phantom pregnancy which are rare in cats (much more common in dogs); if there was a retained kitten it would have died and started to decompose which would have lead to severe symptoms with a few days including fever, smelly discharge and is life threatening. Without examining Peaches, I cannot say what the specific cause is for her symptoms, but would recommend having your Veterinarian take a look at her and have her spayed to prevent any future issues.

Hi, my cat is acting strange since 2 days ago. She already has skin infection for few months ago and corona virus since she was born. She had babies before but they all couldn't make it. Since 2 days ago she keep looking for places to hide. She refused to eat, vomit a lot and extremely dehydrated. She walk very slow and in a weird way. I kinda have a feeling that the fetuses died inside. I'm going to take her to the vet soon but is there any advise or anything else I can do to treat her?

If Fancy is dehydrated you should visit your Veterinarian or an Emergency Veterinarian immediately since the longer the dehydration goes untreated the more severe the overall condition; if you suspect or feel kittens inside Fancy this is a more critical condition and most likely will require Fancy to be spayed.

Dr. Callum Turner, DVM
Dr. Callum Turner, DVM
2973 Recommendations
Cats are pregnant for around nine weeks, however an enlarged abdomen may be indicative of a few different conditions; but if the size of the abdomen has reduced significantly and there is evidence of bleeding it is possible that she had kittens or miscarried elsewhere. Without examining Skye it is difficult to say, does she have milk? Are the glands enlarged? If you have concerns take her into your Veterinarian. Regards Dr Callum Turner DVM

I have 7 barn cats. About a month ago one of the cats starting have a discharge coming from his eyes. Since them 4 other cats have it. Some sneeze some do not. I have given an eye onitment. it seems to help for a short time then comes back. Two of the cats just had litters. Each had five.

One cat lost all five. in less than two weeks. some were getting the eye infection. Mom does not have it.
The second lost two due to outside disturbances. (Dogs like to play with them, not knowing how gentle they need to be.) One to suffication. She seemed to not have enough milk when she had all five. I started supplemental bottle feeding the smallest one. Was doing great then all of a sudden was dead over night. two of the kittens was getting the eye infection. The last one is responding to the onitment.
I just found an miscarage of kittens in the barn.
Because I have 7 cats, I can't afford to take them all to the vet. Could I give them all a tiny dose of antibotics? Would the help? Would it hurt?

Cats that live in herd situations can have specific challenges, especially if they are not vaccinated or spayed or neutered. If you are able to take one or two of the cats to a veteirnarian to have them examined, they may be able to advise you on treatment for all the cats, since you do have a colony of cats happening. I hope that they are okay.

My cat miscarried 6 to 7 kittens yesterday. What do I do about her milk if anything and how long do I have to wait before having her spayed? she was far enough along to have babies we thought but when she pushed them out the were still in the sack and bout the size of a quarter. She still seems pretty big though to have pushed out that many.

Dr. Callum Turner, DVM

The milk should dry up on its own but if there is any discomfort a warm damp towel may be used to offer some relief; but if she has aborted you should visit your Veterinarian for a general check especially if she is showing signs of illness (fever, vaginal discharge etc…) Your Veterinarian will advise you when to spay her, but you wont need to wait long.

Dr. Callum Turner, DVM
2973 Recommendations

Cats may miscarry due to various causes, it is important to know if there are any retained foetuses or membranes; other foetuses would be easily palpable using gentle pressure either side of the abdomen. Causes of miscarriage are infections, trauma or hormonal disorders. Keeping an eye on Ethel is important, look out for signs of fever, fetid discharge, increased thirst or loss of appetite; given her lack of thirst or appetite, I would advise you visit your Veterinarian. If you are not wanting to have kittens, I would recommend you have Ethel spayed to prevent future pregnancies and possible health related problems. Regards Dr Callum Turner DVM

I have a cat and she is pregnant about to give birth to babies in two three days and my family is not willing to tolerate more cat as they hate mine too and I love my cat so can I get advice how to cope out of this problem

I NEED HELP PLEASE HELP...
Heres the story
so my dads friend found these cats out on a dirt road homeless and she had 4 babies with her not sure how old they exactly where but they had teeth full body of hair eyes open and all (I think that they where about 2 to 3 months old but not so sure) anyways so my dads friend asked if I would want to keep them and heck yeah I would I love animals so i took them in and so we have some cats that live around our house and I know that we have a male that romes our barn so about a few months ago I seen how big my cat with the 4 babies (Blue) belly has gotten. I figured that she might want to get pregnant again because she lost 2 of her babies, one (feonna) got sick and died and her other baby (little bit) dissapeared she was so depressed and she is such a great mommy she clingse onto her other two that she has left (cookie and little man) so and I know this is messed up and I hated to do this but I wanted to make sure so I didn't feed her for at least 5 days and her stomich was still the same size and I seen a few days later that she was leeking milk so just yesterday I took her in a craight and put Blue in my room and took Cookie and Little Man in a seperate craight. We left and I let them rome around my room and shut the door so they couldn't get out (cause my mom is very illergic to cat hair) I came home and went to my room to check on them and I seen that cookie and little man were nursing on her and so I got 2 bottles with warm milk and tried to get them to drink that instead of drink on her so they wouldnt do that so I asked my dad if it was ok for them to drink on her even if she is pregnant and he said that it should be fine so I let them and I went to go pick little man up and he was laying on her by her vag so i picked him up and there was blood on my fingers and i checked him and he didnt have any cut or any blood on him so i look over at Blue and blood is just running out of her vag so im really pretty sure that she had a misscariage i told my dad that we need to take her to the vet and he said no we dont a lot of cats misscarry and never go to the vet and they are fine but i dont believe that so do i need to take her to the vet

Diarrhea

S’mores was a sray kitten that we have been caring for for the past 10 months she would come inside but liked to be outside most. We started keeping her outside only bc last week bc she wasn’t going to her litter box and was having diahera. Then I noticed outside a few days ago it was reddish orange. she had 2 kittens yesterday and she didn’t know what to do with the first one so I cleaned it up the best I could and kept putting the kitten next to her. About 30 mins later she had the 2nd... and cleaned it up herself. My question is could the reddish orange stuff I saw been her having a kitten (and she just didn’t know what to do)then a cpl days later have the other 2? Or is that a normal discharge or diarrhea that happened? I haven’t noticed it since she had the kittens.

Dr. Michele King, DVM
Dr. Michele King, DVM
1397 Recommendations
There is a normal discharge before and after having kittens, and the stress of being pregnant and having kittens can cause diarrhea sometimes. If she is bright and happy and eating, and nursing the kittens and having normal stools, you may be fine monitoring her. It would probably be a good idea to have them seen by a veterinarian at some point to check for parasites, as intestinal parasites are very common in cats and kittens.

I"m unsure how many weeks along she is, as she was a stray when I found her. I would guess anywhere from 6-8 weeks (very noticeable belly and nipples). She had a bit of thick brown discharge. Not a lot (it wasn't dripping), I just noticed it when she sat on my lap. She still has a good appetite, healthy BMs, and is very affectionate and playful. Is this discharge a concern or normal? I can't tell if I see the kittens moving like I did yesterday.

There is a certain normal discharge as cats get ready to have kittens, and if Tinker is eating, drinking, and acting normally, you should be okay to continue to monitor her. If she becomes lethargic, stops eating, or the discharge worsens, it would be a good idea to have her seen by a veterinarian to make sure that she is okay. I hope that all goes well for her.

Pregnancy, false pregnancy, uterine infection among other causes may lead these symptoms; you should visit a Veterinarian regardless of cost to give Princess a once over to be on the safe side. If money is an issue, you should try to visit a charity clinic or contact a nonprofit for assistance.

Green discharge

my cat that is pregnant has recently been sick from a food switch and had really bad diarrhea and was puking up her food, but still drinking lots of a water and still wanting to eat. I have been keeping a close eye on her because of this and noticed some green discharge coming from her vag. this to me seems like an infection of some sort im guessing by what iv read. Should I be really concerned? and is this a vet emergency? this is her first pregnancy and she is about 45 days along.

Dr. Callum Turner, DVM
Dr. Callum Turner, DVM

At around 45 days Coffeeee is around 70% through the pregnancy; green discharge at this stage is concerning and may be an indicator of infection, dead kitten or placenta issues. You should visit a Veterinarian immediately to check Coffeeee over to be on the safe side. Regards Dr Callum Turner DVM

We had a cat show up age and history unknown. We have been feeding her and giving her plenty of fresh water but she has had diarrhea for about 3 weeks now (that we know of). Is there anything we can do? She eats and drinks and chases birds, we just can't get the diarrhea to stop.

Lilly may be affected by any number of parasites. It would be best to have her seen by a veterinarian, as they can check a stool sample and determine if parasites are the problem for her, or if she has any other issues.

Thank you for your email. Cats are pregnant for approx 60 days, give or take a few days, so if she got pregnant in December, it is early for her to be having kittens. Since she is having abnormal signs of giving birth, it would be best to have her seen by your veterinarian to make sure that she is okay. She may be having a false pregnancy, or the kittens may be in distress. Your veterinarian will be able to examine her and recommend any tests or treatments that she may need. I hope that Fluffbottom is okay.

All she passed with the milky white substance but never anything "fleshy". In your opinion, what could this have been? Maybe she wasn't actually pregnant? That still leaves the substance she was passing.

My cat is about due to have her kittens 61 days.....she had a kitten at about 4am this morning,the baby was stuck in her birth canal,so did not make it,the kitten was very small. And now it’s been 5hrs since she had that 1st kitten & she has not had anymore,she is being clingy,loving her belly rubbed, licking her private & having a few small contracts a hour. I can still feel the babies move. Could there be a problem with the delivery or could she have had 1 baby miscarry & not be in actual labor now?

Dr. Michele King, DVM
Dr. Michele King, DVM

If she is comfortable and having only occasional contractions, Harley may be in the early stages of labor, and cats can have hours go between kittens. It would be best to give her space, quiet, and keep a close eye on her. If she is actively contracting for more than 20 minutes and not having a kitten, she may need veterinary help.

The blood started red but now it is brown and seems thicker her teats are very swollen but no sign of milk

Without examining Harley I cannot determine whether she is pregnant, having a false pregnancy (rare in cats - more common in dogs) or there is something else going on. Since Harley is bleeding from the vulva, it would be best to visit your Veterinarian immediately for an examination to ensure that Harley is OK and to determine the health of the pregnancy (if she is pregnant).

Reine may be acting perfectly normal, but may be having a problem if she only had one kitten and is was a miscarriage. She may have a retained kitten, or she may be fine. Without seeing her, I can't determine that. The fact that she is eating and drinking and affectionate is good, but if you are worried, the best thing to do is see a veterinarian. I hope that she is okay.

Blood Discharge

I have 5 cats at home; just starting to breed cats. Now, 2 of my cats are pregnant. One of whom is due maybe a week or two from now. However, a while ago, these two cats fought with each other. I was not able to stop them right away as I was doing something in the kitchen. After they fought, i saw spots of blood all over the floor. I got worried. I immediately found out that it was my cat who is the closest to her due whose blood came from. I calmed her down and isolated her in my room. After a while she started to lick herself and just acted normal as if nothing happened. She also did not bleed at all. I am worried, do i have to get her to the vet? I dont have really sufficient budget for that for now. I hope you could help me.

Whether Evian needs medical attention depends on whether she sustained any injuries in the fight that resulted in infection or trauma. If she seems fine otherwise and is eating and drinking normally, she may be fine. As a side, note, however, if you are going to be breeding Persian cats, it would be a good idea to have access to emergency funds, as they are more prone that other cat breeds to having problems with giving birth.

If Baby had one kitten, and it died, and she is bleeding now, she needs to be seen right away by a veterinarian. They will be able to take x-rays and see if there are any more kittens, as she may be having a problem with delivering the kittens. I hope that she is okay.

If Browny is not spayed, and has been outside, she is probably pregnant, as that is what cats do. I'm not sure if she is pregnant, or if she has an infection or bladder problem, without seeing her. If you do not have a veterinarian available to see her, you may just need to wait and see how things progress for her. If she is not eating, or is lethargic, or continues to have blood in her urine, she should probably be seen by a veterinarian, somehow. If she is pregnant, she may have kittens in the near future. I hope that everything goes well for her.

The way to tell if Smokey has a retained kitten or placenta would be to have an x-ray taken, which can be done by a veterinarian. Her breed is a little more prone to problems with having kittens, and if you are noticing something unusual about her, it may be worth having her seen by see what is happening and if she is okay. If she is eating and playful, she may be fine, but if you are worried, that would be the best route to go.

Hi, my cat has already given birth to 4 kittens on Monday night but 2 died that night. My cat has started to vomit and my mum suggested that there may still be a kitten that is dead inside her. I felt around her stomach and I think I can feel a kitten in her that is not moving. Should I be taking her to the vet first thing in the morning or wait to see if it will pass?

By now I hope you have found a Veterinarian to take Lufi to; the placenta (or afterbirth) normally gets expelled soon after the foetus, if it is retained it may lead to infection or life threatening complications. Whatever you do, do not pull on anything; visit a Veterinarian as soon as you are able to and keep Lufi comfortable and hydrated in the meantime. Regards Dr Callum Turner DVM

Thank you for your email. It would be best to take your veterinarian's advice on treatment, since they have seen her and know her health status. Cats can go into heat shortly after giving birth, so she may be going back into a heat and that is why they are having this behavior. If you do not want them to mate, the only way to have that not happen is to put them in separate houses, or have them spayed and neutered. I'm not sure why she didn't carry her kittens to term, other than she is quite young. I hope everything goes well for her!

But im thinking to have injected so she wont go in heat for couple months since i cant neutered her for few month . Is it ok to have her injected?
