    Hi everyone,
    My name is Gem. I'm a new member to the pet forum.
    I recently adopted an orphaned kitten (22/3/19) who had been rejected and abandoned by it's mother. The owner was unable to provide the required care due to hours at work. (Frustrating I know) I have been providing around the clock care and the kitten is doing fantastic. Steadily gaining weight and confidence. ( I am in Love)
    I was informed the kitten was a female, however I'm unsure. Regardless of the sex I plan on having the kitten vaccinated and neutered. Despite it being an indoor cat.
    However that won't be for a few more weeks.
    My family and I named 'her' Mimi.
    Thank you in advance to anyone who replies. 20190401_083123.jpg 20190324_122739.jpg 20190401_123704.jpg 20190331_201938.jpg 20190401_143524.jpg 20190323_122346.jpg

    A little fluffy to be sure from the photos but I think 'she' may be 'he'
    Very sweet, whichever

    Thank you for a fast response. Yes quite fluffy down there. Haha. I watched YouTube videos which implied Male kittens shoot out urine when stimulated. 'Mimi' dribbles. It appears more of a slit in person than a circle however I was unsure of the sex due to the distance.

    I love the photo of your siamese cats. My youngest daughter loves the siamese breed after watching Lady and the Tramp Haha.

    Gorgeous kitten; not surprised you are smitten. TBH it looks male to me, tho' not a very well developed one. When I fostered a pregnant female, I managed to sex all the litter at a week . . . the boys' bits were noticeably more prominent. Have you got a boy's name lined up . . . just in case??:Cat

    If 'Mimi' is a boy I hope he doesn't mind the colour pink. Haha. We haven't at the moment, but I'm sure something will come to us with time. I have probably watched most YouTube videos on how to sex a kitten and looked at most photos. And I'm still puzzled. Haha.

    Please excuse all the 'bottom half photos' I've tried to include lots of 'top half photos' to balance it out. Haha. Hopefully this will help to identify the kittens correct sex.

    I estimate approximately 4 weeks. 'She/he' weighed 225 grams when I collected 'her/him' and now weighs 475 grams. Obviously in an ideal world 'Mimi' would of stayed with mum until 'she/he' was between 8-12 weeks.
