post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Okay I just brought my kittens home tonight and I am not sure what sex they are.I think they are female,but I am not 100%.

Does anyone have pictures or anything that I can see,to see if I can figure out what they are???

BTW they are 8 weeks old or just about.

I can help you if you give me the color of the kittens and the color of the parents (if known). If you have calicos/torties, they are 99.9% female, so you can use that as a guide.

They are both grey tabbies.The mother is also grey tabby.I am not sure the father/s,as the woman just let her cat out when she was in heat.

I think they might be males now.
I have to get a better look...but they are sleeping now.But I do think they may be males.

Well if blue (grey) tabbies then they can be either sex. I've been fooled once or twice. Sometimes its hard to figure out if you have no definate sex (like a calico) to go by!

When the kitten is too young, it's quite difficult to sex, even with pictures guide. I really thought that my Lucy Belle was male, comparing her privvies with the guides. I think it's easier to tell once they are older.

This is true, because weve had so many members here think they had female kittens until their vet checked them over and discovered they were male, and vice verse.

That happened with one of my mom's cats.He look female,has a female face and for the longest time we thought he was a he...then after he got bigger,we all assumed he was a "she" and he has long hair,so his parts were not visible.When he went to get "spayed"...turned out he was a male afterall!

I bred rexes and it was easy to tell. However one of the last kittens (she was an "only" kitten) was white. When born she looked very much like a little boy with balls. So I was planning on keeping her to show as a neutered cat.

Only when I went in the vets for shots for her, did the vet come out and tell me "are you SURE its a boy? - cause there is nothing there - you have a little girl."

I had nothing to compare the kitten to and she really looked like a male when born.
