We just brought 2 kittens home yesterday, and had been told they were both girls. DD decided to name them Minnie and Daisy (Mickey Mouse Clubhouse fan ) We took the kittens to get a check up and vaccs this afternoon, and the vet checked
So here is the dilemma MNers- do we leave him as 'minnie' (including pink collar a la Minnie Mouse) considering he will be neutered in the very near future, or change his name, try to explain to my autistic DD (5) about boy bits, and then answer every conceivable (and inconceivable) question her little autistic brain comes up with for the next year (or 10)?
Just had to respond to this, My mum also has a cat who is 13 named Thomas. Thomas went to get "neutered" at 6 months old. The vet then told mum that that he was a she. It seemed wrong to change her name.
I'm sure Minnie wont care one bit what his name is as long as you keep the food and cuddles coming
One of my boy cats had a fluorescent pink collar for months - it was just a nicer colour than any of the others. He must have liked it, as he didn't lose two within a week, unlike his brother (who had slightly more butch yellow ones).
He has red now and at least one of the vet nurses still refers to him as her/she all the time ... he is a VERY pretty cat. Mind you one of the vets was saying his brother was 'too pretty to be a boy'. He's a CAT!
