    Hello All. I purchased a siamese kitten and the breeder said she was 14899451114351484343499.jpg 1489944786905-1715172979.jpg 14899451114351484343499.jpg 100% sure it's a female. After getting home and looking the kitten over, I think it is a male. Can some one that knows please let me know what they think because I'm not for sure 1489944786905-1715172979.jpg . Thank you!

    The best way to take the photos is with the kitten stood up, hold it's tail out of the way. However looks rather like a boy to me.

    I'm not at home to take a picture and it won't let me upload what I have. I will post a front pic as soon as I get home. Thanks to all for helping me out.

    Did the breeder not take the kitten for vaccinations? The vet should have picked up the sex being wrong.

    Be sure to let her know your pedigree papers are incorrect.

    I do have the vaccination records. I did let her know that she was wrong about the sex and she said the vet gave her the sex of all the kittens. She had blue and pink ponytail holders on the kittens as collars and I guess her son switched them all around on the kittens. Now that I have learned how to tell the sex myself, this should never happen to me again. I took him to the vet and he is healthy and that's all that matters. I understand mistakes happen but I would think if you are a breeder you should be able to tell the sex of kittens yourself.

    Oh, he is stunning.

    Am not very impressed by a breeder who doesn't double check these things before you take "receipt" of the kitten and doesn't know which kitten is which.

    I'm glad she's sorting that out for you :)

    I assume your girl went to another home and can't be swapped?

    She is sorting it out for me. And yes, my girl went to someone that wanted a boy. The breeder is contacting the other family and we will go from there.

    Hmm. :Grumpy
    Just how
    old is her son? -- if he was my kid, & he was over 5-YO, we'd be having a less-than-comfortable chat about messing with the kittens' collars!
    I think his social life would be very, very limited for a while. Grounding sucks, but it gets the point across - some things are simply not acceptable.
    .
    OTOH, the breeder should have noticed something was awry, in any case. // The parent doesn't get off scot-free 'cuz the kid swapped the collars!

    He looked to be 4 or 5 and he is autistic. She feels really bad. She's going to make it right with me and the other family.
