Breaking News: Utah and Maine are GIRLS!!!
OK - in my defense, they were tiny when I checked for gender and I never rechecked. Utah was dozing yesterday so I decide to get some kitten love. He rolled over and lo and behold...no boy parts. Which prompted me to check everyone else. OK - except the calico girls....though maybe I should check. :) Anyhow, Nevada and Dakota are definitely boys and Utah, Maine, Carolina and Georgia are girls. Which means the three tinest kittens are in fact girls.
Everyone was out in the pen playing yesterday and having a blast. It is getting funnier to watch now that the other kittens are big enough to start giving Bug a run for his money. :)
Loved the title and the "Breaking News" line! :-) When they're that tiny, it is so hard to tell. I had 4-week old kittens seen by a vet, and she even gave them "tentative" genders.ReplyDelete
Last season, my Foster Home Coordinator had a Male Calico. She didn't even check his gender, just checked off "spay" on his medical paperwork that went with him to the APL. He came back neutered! About one in 4000 calicoes will be male, due to a genetic mutation - they will be XXY rather than XY.
