At what age does hmmm become visible?

At around what age does testicles become visible? I have had Pong what 2 months now and I still don't see any. Could I have guessed his gender wrong and he is really a female?

You can tell males from the time they are born. If you wait till later, sometimes its not as evident till a few months old.

But you can feel around to find them. Has your kitten been seen by your vet yet?

With all my medical expenses at the first of the month no. But other than that little eye issue (vet recommended some meds I had for that) he has been fine. I will get him in when I have the cash for that. Hopefully within the next 2 weeks I will have some extra cash coming in. Looking at pictures and the area I think Pong might be a Pongette. I mean I see what could be sacs but I feel nothing in there. Also the area looks more like a slit instead round.

My guy's weren't visible for a while, and I wondered too if I was told the wrong thing, esp since a couple of his nipples are visible through his coat, even though common sense is that boys have them too... they told me he was 4 mos when I got him and it had to be a few months later they were there, because it took him a good while just to come out enough for me to get a look...

My kitty was clearly a boy but he had no testicles down there either. In his case they were undescended.

Bucky was a boy....(I thought)....until she went to the vet! That was pretty embarassing

Hmm I don't know what to say.

I can tell you about Ryu, it was quite clear he was a boy but his sack was tiny, and when the vet squeezed them as such I thought he has to be very young coz the sack virtually flattened, anyways 6wks later they are almost as big as Diego's, I figure it was coz he was so starved they shrunk or didn't develop well.

If you didn't have Pong so long I would have guessed that he might be still filling out too.

Maybe he is Pongette

I don't think you could miss them at any age really. But you never know.


Thanks for the pic Susan.

Do you want me to paint 2000 words with some shots of Diego and Ryu?

Your quite right, I thought I was the only one that took ball photo's. We thought if we could take a pic to the vet he could tell us he can fix Diego at 6mths rather than 8, but he said he needs to play with them first.
Not just go by a photo.

I do believe it safe to say from those photo's darling, that Pong is indeed Pongette. I think all that means for you is a slightly more expensive vet bill when it comes to spaying.

It looks like Pong could be a pongette

Uh oh...looks like you have a Pongette...but don't worry...Ike has really warmed up to her boy name
Man, I thought I was the only person "slow" enough to not realize my big boy Ike was an "Ikerina"

.. or a Ponga ......... Congratulations on your new girl
post #23 of 28
Definitely a little girl!
post #24 of 28
Definitely GIRL!

Girls look like upside-down ! and boys look like :

I used to confirm the sex of our guinea pigs as part of my research work.

OT: I had one male who was so well-developed by 9 mos, that when I took him in to set up his appt for fixing, even the vet commented on that -- LOL!

forgive me for giggling, but I can't help it. As everyone else points out, Pong is a girlie cat. Surprise!

There you go, the reason he doesn't have any testicles.
