Good afternoon, I'm new to this forum but wanted to find out if anyone has had a similar experience to me. Ok here goes... 9 years ago I got a rescue cat from the SSPCA, they told me it was a little girl 3 years old and I called her Millie. Recently she's been urinating over the house so this morning I took her to the vet and discovered she has a urinary infection. However I also discovered she is actually a HE!!!! I cannot believe I have thought for 9 years that my cute little girl is in fact a boy. I've never had to take her/him to the vet before and just took the animal centre's word for it when they said she was a girl. I've never had any reason to doubt it. I'm still in shock and don't think I'll ever get over it. I don't know whether I can get used to saying he and Millie certainly isn't a boys name. Just wondering if anyone else has had a similar shock.
