I once agreed to adopt a sweet young female kitten when my best friend developed hives shortly after bringing her home. Knowing my husband would balk at a female cat, I showed up with him, saying, "Isn't he sweet?" Since the kitten was named Chablis, we renamed him Arthur, after the Dudley Moore movie and song popular then. A couple of weeks later, feeling guilty about my deceit, I mentioned casually that I thought Arthur might really be a girl kitty. Asa lifted her tail, took a look and said with conviction, "Balls is balls!" a statement I teased him about long after Arthur was spayed.

How do I determine the sex of a kitten? My cat slipped outside awhile back and recently had kittens. I'd like to keep one of the males before finding homes for the others. How do I determine the sex of a kitten?The litter pictured here was only a little over a week old when this photo was taken. Except for the calico markings on one kitten, they were really too young to be sexed at that time. However, the gray kitten on the left is my Joey.
