My 3 new kittens



the one on the left is Pete, the one in the back is Amadeus(o-muh-day-us), and the one on the right is Yoda.







They are 1/4 Siamese, 1/2 orange tabby, and 1/4 unknown. They are a little over 2 months old now.

*grabby hands* What sweet looking Tortie girls! ...and I simply *love* the name of "Pete" for one of the girl-kittys.

Re: My 3 new kittens

The thing is that I didn't name them and I am the only one who thinks they are girls. Everyone else thinks they are boys

So which are they? Boys or Girls? lol they are adorable. But how in the world do you tell them apart! They all look alike in the photos.

Re: My 3 new kittens

It is a *very* rare occurance if a calico/tortie is male. It is a genetic oddity, making the cat XXY and usually sterile. Torties and Calico's are black and red because the color genes are carried on the female "X" gene. Boys can only be one color (XY) and girls (XX) carry a color on each X-gene. If the colors are different, like red and black, then the cat is calico/tortoiseshell. Solid colored female cats are either both red X's or both black.

Re: My 3 new kittens

I think they are all girls, and everyone else thinks they are all boys. But whatever they are they look like they are all the same gender. I can tell them apart because Pete has bright markings around his eyes, Yoda is more gray, smaller, and three of his left toes are white. And then Omy doesn't have bright toes or bright eye markings.

Martho, have you checked to confirm the kittens' gender? You'll have to lift their little tails and examine their "equipment", so to speak. Males would look like this: :. Females would look like this: ¡. I'm sure Heidi, or someone else, will post better pictures or even links to better pictures.

I'm going into a cute coma.

The last time people tried to elimate free roaming cats it resulted in The Black Plague.

Yeah, there's a lot of cuteness. If you want to recover from your coma, then DO NOT look at the thread entitled, "My Rescue". I fell off my chair from the cute. You've been warned.
