    Have had Willow and Mizu, both ragdoll girls since they were 8 weeks old in January (they are not siblings). Always wondered why Willow was so much smaller but thought it might be down to dodgy breeding/health issues she had when younger where she wasn't eating a lot for a long time.

    But turns out, there is a simple explanation. The vet pointed out Mizu has testicles today! I'm in shock! Especially as I'd asked a previous vet to check as I did feel that Mizu looked more like a boy? I even checked online about the space between the anus and the genitals and she looked like a girl, but perhaps the testicles weren't prominent enough at that point as it was about 3 months in? I don't know.

    Had them booked in for neutering anyway but trying to get it sped up.

    I'm in shock!

    Yes giardia went thank god. That was a nightmare!

    Slightly concerned Willow is pregnant :( They are six months old. Had them in to be neutered a few weeks ago but was cancelled due to mizu getting sick from vaccinations (she's now sick again after her second one!) And they said it would be easier to do them together.

    Have booked them in for the soonest I can but next slot is the 17th.

    What are the chances willow is pregnant at this age? She does look a bit bigger :( Vet said she couldn't detect anything but doesn't seem like that's very reliable when they're early anyway.

    Its possible but not a given is she showing signs? Pinking of the nipples etc? They may not both be sexually mature yet but equally they could be at this age. At such a young age and with her being a non-breeding cat a spay abortion would be the best option for her anyway, and if vet cant detect anything its probably not too late to do this xxx

    Not sure how likely it is she’s pregnant but I would definitely still have her spayed on 17th even if she is pregnant, especially after her health issues. Claws crossed she’s not though!

    Ring them, explain your concerns, they may well be happy to proceed with the 17th which is only 10 days away.

    At least you don't need to change the name; it's not as if you gave him something really girly like Florence!

    Yes so glad I don't have to change his / her name!

    Glad it seems like it's not the end of the world waiting 10 days. Willow is meowing quite a bit more, and trying to get out of the flat a lot. She's also a bit more affectionate, and I can see she has tiny nipples but not prominent ones. I do think something may be going on though as Mizu is sniffing and licking her vagina a lot more than before?

    I haven't heard her 'call' though. The meowing is episodic and not very consistent. Certainly havent heard Mizu call either.

    Agreed, so most likely not pregnant. If mizu isnt showing interest in her he rprprobably isnt sexually mature yet so willow is almost definitely UNpregnant :)

    Oh.

    He is licking and sniffing her vagina, and they are generally very affectionate. But havent heard him meow a lot or seen him try to mount her. Or could it be less obvious than that?

    Hold on Mizu, don't mature!!!
