    Maybe female, but a photo of the kitten stood upright would be far easier to sex.

    Much better photo, boy. The urinary opening is a fair way from the anus and looks like a dot. It's closer in girls and is a slit, so they are like an upside down question mark. Of course some kittens are a bit ambiguous especially before weaning.

    All I see is 'female' in all photos! I don't feel confident of that as I can't, somehow, get any size perspective from the photos

    Thank you. Yeah I originally thought boy then today think looks more like a line straight down rather than a hole but is a litter further away. I’ve been calling him he for 3 weeks so I think he is a he and is a singleton so not had any others to compare him to!

    Place the kittens feet on the ground and lift the tail to take a photo.
    Far easier to tell that way.

    Looks female but better pics needed.
