    Hi everyone i need some general advice. I have been putting my girl in with my stud boy every time she calls for about eight months now and each time she fails to fall pregnant, she has had two previous litters of two kittens, so she doesn't have many, before with him. I know he doesn't always do the job first time as I have experienced with my other queens most recently with my colourpoint girl who didn't fall pregnant. Although I have just have a girl give birth to 6 kittens and a girl give birth back in February to 4 kittens so he can reproduce. I'm now thinking of getting her spayed. Any thoughts would be much appreciated as to what this could be before I spay her she is 3 years old.

    Strep G? Which is difficult to test for so most breeders just do the treatment if there are concerns.

    Could also be as simple as giving a vitamin E supplement to boost fertility in both cats.

    I read through the article, thing is I cant see where she would have picked chlamydia up from as I have had her from a kitten as well as my other girls and she and my girls have only ever been with my stud by and he is closed stud to only my girls.

    I treated all my cats a year ago for Strep G as a precaution as I was having problems with kitten reabsorption and kittens born with organs and intestine on the outside.
    Think I will give the vitamin E ago.

    Update. I decided to get Betty spayed as I felt there was something wrong, we know when something is not quite right with our cats. Operation went well when I went to collect her the vet said she had polycystic ovaries which was the probable cause of her not getting pregnant.
