Gender of my kitten? Picture included!

Hi there!

I simply want to know if my kitten is a male or female. I don't have any other kittens to compare my kitten to since I only have one and he/she was a stray. (Not to worry, my fur baby is doing just fine smile )

I apologize for the dirty anus, but the link below has a picture of my kitten's genitals.

I'm no cat expert, but based on pictures I have seen online, my kitten looks like a boy.

This is a picture of my cutie's face (not that it will help determine the gender very much, but it puts a face with the... parts. Haha).

I originally named my kitten "Mika", a Japanese female name meaning perfume or scent, but if she's actually a boy, I will obviously need a name change. (I was thinking of Kyle).

This site with its pictures made me think my kitten is a boy. He/she is only about 8 weeks old, so I'm thinking that the testicles may not protrude yet.

Thank you! Have a wonderful weekend.

Mika is also a Finnish boys name.

While Micah (a more masculine spelling and pronunciation version of Mika) was playing, we saw a part on him that no female would have.
Many thanks to you both! big hug
