    Hi all,

    Hopefully you can see the attachment on this post. We've just got a new kitten, and we were told she is a girl but we think she might actually be a boy! My vet is shut until Tuesday so I'm hoping one of you will be able to tell me!

    thanks, Emseth

    Most definitely a boy!
    I know I can only see his backside but he looks very young too, how old is he?

    Thanks everyone for your very quick responses! He's 8 weeks. Marley, our 3 year old male cat is not happy at the moment - but not sure if the kitten being a boy is making it worse - we wanted a girl as he tends to get one with girl cats in the neighbourhood but not the boys (he was neutered as soon as he was old enough so he's not getting on with the lady cats in that way!).

    Looks rather like our 8 week old kitten Silver who looked like a girl until about 2 weeks ago!! :p

    I doubt that your older cat is unhappy because your kitten is male, just not happy having someone else to share you with :) In general I think two neutered males will get on better with each other, just give Marley time to realise that the new kitten is staying (a bit like toddlers with a new baby :D)

    I have two boys and they are very much in love. Two boys are fine together as long as both are neutered when of age :)
