Hello from Asheville, NC!

Hey everyone! My name is Courtney and I'm from the good 'ol mountains of NC. I created an account here because I recently adopted a kitten from a farm nearby. They have a feral group of about 30 cats, and it was tough to catch this kitten! Once caught it bit my thumb through the gloves I was wearing!

It has been 2 weeks since the capture and the kitten is warming up terrifically! She (I think it's a 'she,' thus the reason for this account) acts no different now from any other kitten her age, but still I can't figure out if 'she' is actually so, or if it's a 'he.' It's about 6 weeks old, and it's little bottom looks like a slit instead of a dot, but I'm very unsure of my kitten gendering techniques. Could anyone help me?

I'll just post the URLs here, in case some of you unsuspecting good people don't want to see kitty bottoms.

Hm, I'm not an expert, but a girl, I think.

Whichever sex, she's absolutely gorgeous!

Definitely girl!! At 6 weeks and already two weeks with you, it's time for a vet visit! A vet will determine it's sex for sure and check it for any medical issues you need to know about. Congratulations, it looks very cute!!!

Cat owners' prayer: "Lord help me be the person my cat thinks I am"

I Did a search. I'm going for male. Look at the two little shadows above to each side.

I'm thinking your kitty is a boy. I have two boys and two girls and the pictures you posted of your kitty's bits look more like my boys than my girls.
