Do boy kitties have nipples?

Got a new, young, furry love in your life? This is the place for you to ask all of your questions - big or small! Just remember that you are receiving advice from other cat owners and lovers... not professionals. If you have a major problem, always seek the advice of a vet or behaviorist! Most important is to remember to have fun with your new fur baby.

I know this is a really stupid question. red face I've had cats all my life, including males, but never noticed this before. Lurch has a black coat and pure white skin. When I got him less than a month ago, his coat was very thin and had small bald spots. Today I was checking him out and it's much thicker and softer.

BUT... he has bald spots on his belly, and they all seem to have a small red dot in them. The first one looked like a little pimple, then I saw there were a number of them. He is certainly male, so I guess the reason I never noticed them on other cats is that their coats were thicker?

Yes, I do! Freaked my human sister out! Can't really see them on Smudge, but with my long hair they are really obvious.

I have nipples! My meowmi freaked out when she first got me because she thought they were flea's or ticks. I have long hair so when she was feeling around on my belly she felt them and tried to get one off. OUCH. I laugh about it now but at the time- not so funnylaugh out loud


I know I can, I- know I can!
