I've always wanted a female (I like girlie-girls, I like girlie-names, I like girlie colors). Unfortunately, both my parents' cats and my new kitty are all male. I've heard the males can be more affectionate (certainly not the case with the parents' two!), so I tell myself that's why.
Skeeter's a male. I heard that boys are cuddlier and I've had a female before who was hardly cuddly at all, so we gave it a try! I also want a son when we have a baby, so that may have had something to do with it, too. :wink:
I love male cats! They are so mushy and sweet! When I move out... I'm getting a seal point Himmie to play with Halifax. He gets so lonely by himself (Tigger keeps trying to eat him... well.. ok... scratch him... a lot).
