my boyfriends sister got these cats and my boyfriend claims they are both boys because they have a penis. i looked at my girl cat and she had the same thing. so is it a boy or girl? and what is that damn thing?
II'm assuming these are kittens. contrasting the two can be helpfu lf you have both sexes. The space between the anus and urinary tract opening in the male is greater than the distance in the female.
I was always told a female kitten's genitals will resemble an upside-down exclamation point (the vaginal slit below is the anus). On a male kitten the organ will look more like a colon. The penis is below the anus and separated by a space to accomodate his testicles. You may even be able to see very small lumps in that space thatwill grow into the testicles as the kitten matures.
