New member and kitty owner with questions!
I am new to the forum, and a new cat owner in general. I received my kitty from a friend when they were about 6 weeks old. He said it was the runt of the litter and a boy. I named him Jarvis. I have had him for quite a while now, since February. He is my first pet, and has become the love of my life. I live by ,myself, and Jarvie keeps me great company, especially if I become bored or lonely.
Jarvis' balls never dropped, and he is almost a year old, so I have become curious and even somewhat concerned. From what I read, it can take up to a year for this to happen. I did some more internet surfing and watched a video on how to determine a cat's sex. After watching multiple videos of a similar nature, I have determined that I think Jarvis is actually a girl.....I am really upset, embarrassed, and not sure what to do. Any suggestions are welcome. Should I rename him to a her?
On another note, I have never taken my cat to the Vet. My friend who gave me the kitty said he got all the shots shortly after birth. My kitty is indoors only, in my apartment and sometimes for short multiple day visits at my parent's house. Any thoughts here? Thanks!
