Can you tell me if my kitten is male or female?

If I can figure out how to post a picture of my kittens butt would you be able to try and tell its sex? The vet told me that he couldn't tell me for sure but I would really like to know.

Er, those are balls aren't they? But actually, that looks like an, er, opening....hmm!! Sorry, I'm no use.

I need to see the kittens face!

I think a girl but thats about 70% sure!

I say girl.

Is it tortoiseshell? Torties are female except in rare genetic cases.

How does the vet not know? Is it a very young kitten or maybe has undecended testicles?

I cant tell but dont ever google "sex a kitten" and then click on images.

I think it's a round lower opening for a boy and a slit for a girl from what google eventually told me.

A face shot might be more help if the kitten has recovered from having it's genitals photographed and put on the internet.

I'd say a girl. How about a full face photo?

Girl I think.

Argh mumsnet is not cooperating and letting me post a picture of her face. Now I look like a cat bum troll! I think girl too but then I think her face looks like a boy. She is 10 weeks so still quite young. I shall try one more time to post a picture of her face!

Quite clearly female ano-genital distance is short.

I hope this works.

Quite a delicate bone structure though. Very pretty cat no matter what gender though.

IEatBadgers Thu 16-Jul-15 21:38:27

Yeah, she is lovely. Quite the trouble maker though, I think that's why the vet couldn't get a proper look, she wasn't making his job easy. The kids have picked the name Fang for her which I think is quite fitting given her love of gnawing on us!

Ah. I'm guessing that Lone has had to scrutinize more animals' private parts than the rest of us have had hot dinners.

(And she looks like a little girl as well.)

My bread and butter cozie.

I haven't examined the bits of many cats but that does look like a pretty girly face!

TheWomanTheyCallJayne Thu 16-Jul-15 23:05:24

I think girl

CharleyDavidson Thu 16-Jul-15 23:07:09

The 'bits' look round if it's a boy and like a line if it's a girl.

I'm going with girl. Our boy looks different.

She's quite a beauty. smile

Girl, our boy kitten has very distinguishable testicles blush but seriously you can tell if it was a boy, that's a little girl I think!

She's lovely. I much prefer the pic of the front end!
