We were told Luna(originally Charlie) was a female kitten. Today after some curiosity from my bf, we looked up how to determine sex of a cat. So sure enough, we lift up the tail only to find what appears to be a penis sticking out. Time for a name change, I guess.

Sometimes it's hard to tell what the gender is shrug Boys don't have the penis hanging out. You can see the testicles kind of further dwon the butt area.

Oh no, this was most certainly a penis. When he lifted up the tail it poked out to say "yes, hello, I am boy." And then went back in.

Aww, LOL! Poor kid has to have his name changed! A friend of mine just got a kitten who was so young, they couldn't tell, so they gave her a gender neutral name and called her Pepper, eventually finding out that she was indeed a girl.

Violet's hair is so long, and she was only 2 mos. old when I got her, so when I took her for her first vet visit, literally the first thing I asked them was to just double check that she was a girl. They confirmed that she was, and I said, "Good, now I don't have to re-order her name tag so that it says 'Benny' on it!" big grin

My best friend from high school had a cat who she thought was a boy, so they named the cat Herbie, and then found out Herbie was a girl. But they kept the name because they thought it might be confusing for her if they changed it. Which, a year or so later when the cat became pregnant, lead to confusing outburts such as "Mom! Hurry up, Herbie's having her litter!"

We decided to keep him Luna since cats don't have the social construct of gender roles like people. He still going to be my pretty little princess. Lol
