Help needed sexing a kitten

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
I found a kitten a few days ago, I need a little help determining its sex. The pictures aren't the greatest, but the kitten didn't really want to hold still for a better one!

Any help? I've tried comparing to pictures online, and initially I thought male, but I'm not too sure.

kinda looks like a girl to me... but i'm not positive.

I'd say your kitty is female.

hmmm, looks female to me, too....but not 100% sure. Sorry! Could we see the other end as well?

I'm going with boy, because the 'openings' look too far apart to be a girl.

Well, kinda looks like a girl to me - No little furry torpedos to speak of

But again, can't be sure!

Same here.

I'm going with boy. Make an appointment with the vet and have him/her check for sure. I'd almost guess that the kitten was neutered as I don't see any balls developing (tho you might be able to feel a little lump on either side that doesn't show now in the picture)

It spacing is more apart then for a female.

So about half and half on it, eh? Looks like I'm not the only one having trouble with it.

For what it's worth, the kitten was feral when I found it, and can't be more than 7 or so weeks old.

Looks like a little boy to me too.

I'd go with boy too ... get a vet to check him out, it's kinda worrisome that I don't see any hmmmmm "torpedos" as someone said!

I would also say boy.

I say you've got a little boy.

I'd say a female, 2 out of 3 of Pixie's kittens were hard to sex and I kept changing my mind on what they were! By about 6-8 weeks if a boy the bits would be developed more so it would be easier to tell. Ours are now 11 weeks and no 'bits' have developed so turns out all 3 were girls! Even when, everyone, including me and people on here had differing opinions!

I know another way of telling but it involves a bit of minuplation in a certain area - don't really want to type it in general. If you want to know, just PM me and I'll explain

Whenever my kitty cleans his genitals his penis comes out so if you ever see your cleaning it take a look and see if you notice anything.

You definately have a boy on your hands!

Here's a link that shows good pics and points everything out. Check here and "compare" so you can see for yourself:
