Q: what is the discharge?
my kitty is having a discharge from her vaginal area. it is clear. major, my german shepherd will not leave her alone, wanting to lick. we are having to keep them seperated.i haven't had her fixed yet cause i have several people wanting kittens. i don't think she's in heat or my tom, bug, would be after her, right?

First of all, may I ask why you're breeding your cat? I'm not against conscientious breeders, who are careful with their animals, fully screen them for health problems, keep track of their toms, queens and litters, and generally breed to promote the breed standard. Not to sound rude, but I'm surprised, if you're a breeder, that you'd be asking a question like this on a generalized website.
Anyways, I'd highly recommend spaying your cat. Your cat (who IS gorgeous, by the way) may be pretty and there are sure to be people who want an offspring, but have you visited a shelter recently? It's one thing to have a cat accidently bred, but I think it unethical to bring more animals into the world "just because" when our shelters are so overcrowded that HUNDREDS of THOUSANDS of would-be family members are killed EVERY SINGLE DAY in this country, because we cannot find homes for them. I worked at the Humane Society, and it broke my heart so much I had to quit. I couldn't deal with the overwhelming death of these creatures who simply were thrown away and didn't have a place to go.
Anyways, your queen probably isn't in heat if the discharge isn't colored - that is to say, isn't reddish or pink to some degree. It's hard to say without taking a peek at the cat, but you may want to get her in to your vet anyways to make sure it's not an infection of some kind.
Best of luck to you and your pets!

Any discharge is no doubt related to the fact that your cat is not spayed. However, you should take her to your vet for complete evaluation and diagnosis. Following that.....
I completely agree with the person who first answered this question. You should have your cat spayed and refer those people who are interested in adopting kittens to a local animal shelter. It is currently "kitten season" and there are literally thousands of kittens looking for homes all across the country. It would be to bring more kittens into the world when thousands are dying needlessly every day.
