Today Chloe was sitting on the bed bathing herself when I was writing a letter. Something pink caught my eye and when I looked up, I realized it was her wee-wee

All this time I have thought Chloe was a girl!


Even the vet has him listed as a female


So ya, I feel stupid now and we've got to come up with a new name

Hmmmm you think maybe my Sassy should have told me he was a boy before I named him also. I just stuck with Sassy because it suits him....He doesn't seem to mind..

I like the Joey/Chloe switch.

We had an Amazon parrot that we got from a breeder as a baby. Amazons are not sexually dimorphic and don't have visible wee wees.

The breeder assured us that the parrot was female but we said look at the size she is so much bigger than her clutch mates! Nope, the breeder said that her breeding pair produced large alpha females.

Well since he or she came to us on the Fourth of July, we called it Liberty. We had to get some blood work done and we asked to have the bird sexed. Sure enough, Liberty is a girl.

Reminds me of years ago when my sister first got her (now RB) kitty Ashley. Turns out he was a boy but she kept the name saying she named him after Ashley from Gone with the Wind!

We inherited (from some questionable neighbors) a litter of older kittens when I was in high school, wore up and down that Fluffy (LH orange, RB) was a girl... we all checked... no obvious... external male appendages...

We took them all in to get speutered later on and they shaved Fluffy, opened her up and found no girl insides... no uterus, etc... hhmmm... vet checked the backside, sure enough, there they were... small, but there...

We changed his name to Fluff... He was truly humiliated... but he was a love of a kitty. the whole litter was awesome.

I like the Chloe/Joey change... similar sounds...

OT but interesting. I was reading a book written by a surgeon at the Angell memorial hospital in Boston, MA USA. He has a case of a Male dog (some type of PitBull or Rottie) that started to exhibit Female behavoir's. Well, his owner was mortified, he was a super male egoist type. They saw a mass in his nether regions on the xray. Opened him up and it was a UTERUS!!!! This dog was born with it. Can you believe it. He says it's in the textbook but extremely rare. He almost fainted when he saw it.

Maybe Chloe has both too?

That's too funny. Look on the bright side, it will be a much simpler surgery and cheaper too

Sorry! Had to laugh out loud after I read all these, they are so funny!

Poor kitty though... Bless his heart!

Geez, funny as it sounds (and it probably was!), its a scary thought that vets cut cats open thinking they are female BEFORE checking their backsides for little berries. I know sometimes cats are speutered before they even reach 6 months of age, this makes it even more difficult to determine if berries are even there. Vets should really make the extra effort, seriously!

Several years ago, I gave 2 of Kiki's kittens to a friend. We thought they were both girls. Smokey was a short haired grey little girl while the other was a long haired black kitty named Bear. I was hold her one day, supporting her bum, and I felt something. She was a HE! Bear was a name that fit both, so my friend didn't rename him. He looked like a teddy bear!
