    My stepdad took their female cat which they have had for several months now to the vet to be spayed. He took Shell-Bell yesterday and was to pick her up today.

    When he arrived at the vet's office he was told the cat was a male. :blush:

    Not surprised. You can't tell a male unless the are *ahem* cleaning themselves.

    Cats are really hard to tell, especially when they are young. We had that happen now, which is why the mama cat on my parents' farm is named Abraham. lol.

    It's hard to tell if the balls haven't dropped yet. Did the vet tutor him? It is cheaper for a tutor than a spay.

    Yep just had that happen to us. The runt of my cat Shyannes first litter (she is the cat on the bottom in my avatar) well, we were sure it was a boy! Acted like a boy etc.


    She is a girl, still named Rufus (she won't answer to any other name) Poor girl was so traumatized that she hid in the basement ceiling for a month and would not come out! She is only now starting to forgive us. She will allow us to be in the same room with her. We are just not allowed to look at her or touch her! LOL

    This happened to my aunt's cat. They thought Hazel was a girl. Nope, Hazel is a boy.

    Apparently this happens a LOT

    we gave my mom a kitten that she named Hannah...now HIS name is Gideon.

    When we took Gideon's brother to our vet, he made she that Bob was BOB not Bobbi and laughed his head off at my mom's vet...they are friends...and said it happened to him as he was doing the SURGERY one time!

    :lol::lol::lol::lol:
