Kitten Care

Determining the Sex of your Kitten

To determine the sex of the kittens, hold a kitten tummy-up in your hand. In females, the vulva is a vertical slit above the anus; they are very close together. In males, the penile opening is above the anus, but they are separated by a raised scrotal sac and thus seem far apart.

It is easiest to see the differences between the sexes if you examine all the kittens and then find two that donít have matching equipment.

Donít worry if it is unclear; by the time the kittens are ready for permanent homes, their sex will be obvious.
