    Looks like a girl but the photo is not clear enough. Very dirty bottom too.

    How old is the kitten? I assume they irresponsibly let the kitten leave entire if the sex isn't known

    Yes the kittens bottom is dirty. I clean his bottom but took my chance to take a picture whilst in view.

    Kitten is not old enough to be spayed so it's nothing to do with being irresponsible. The kitten is from a rescue as they trapped the kittens as mother had sadly died.

    Kittens can be neutered from 1kg which is usually around 8 weeks so yes, it is irresponsible to place without neutering

    The charity have said once the kitten is of age/weight that they will be neutering... So I don't think that's being irresponsible.

    Underage as well, poor baby :( good rescues keep them until they're of age and a good weight

    We are fostering the kitten as there was no room at the rescue.
    I wish people would know the full story before they assume as we all know what assuming does.

    We get numerous threads with underage kittens, its frustrating. Nowhere in your first post did you say you were fostering, you said you got a kitten from a rescue. We can only go on the information you provide

    I took these posts to mean you adopted the kitten from a rescue as fostering wasn't mentioned

    Well that's a load of crap and you know it.
    You started a thread on 15 November asking for advice about what kind of kitten to get because you wanted a second cat. You were advised to wait until whatever kitten you chose was old enough and you thanked the poster for that advice.

    Don't be disingenuous. You're not "fostering" an abandoned kitten, which would imply you're nurturing a kitten in professional level conditions until it is old enough to be adopted. You've been given an underage kitten which you're "trialling" for 2 weeks (presumably meaning you'll be giving it back if it doesn't work out).

    Whatever charity you're working with seems pretty shady to me. They've given you a 6 week old kitten to "test drive" and they haven't even told you its sex?
