How can you tell a female from a male kitten when their only a couple days old? I really need to know. Thanks
My cat had 4 kittens and I need to know the sex’s so I can advetise them in the paper to give away. How to you tell a male from a female when their only a couple days old. Is it a dot and a line or a line and a dot (that’s what I heard) but don’t know which one is which – I really need help on this one – thank you.
If there are two round circles on top of each other, it’s a boy, if it’s a circle on top and a slit, then it’s a girl.
How can you tell a male kitten from a female kitten?
Even the pet shop staff often get it wrong. My ‘male’ cat, to which I gave a male name, later gave birth to kittens.
Cats’ external parts are similar in appearance, especially when they’re kittens.
Here’s another website ……with PICTURES of male & female “rear ends”……..Check them out and compare to your kitten.
Hope this helps……..Good luck.

my boyfriend is getting me a pure white blue eyed kitten but i need to know what sex it is thanks so much I’m so excited
Buffalo Alice is right. Males have a larger space between the anus and urethral opening, and females’ is shaped more like a slit. But unless you have a sure female to compare it to (like a calico kitten), it can be tough to gauge the distance.
If you’re not sure, you can also (gently!!) rub a finger between the two holes. You will be able to feel a male’s testicles, they will feel like small round lumps about the size of a pea. You may only be able to feel one, and they will like to slide away from you, but if you feel one then you’ve almost certainly got a boy.
And @Buffalo Alice, not all blue eyed cats are deaf, but a greater percentage of them are. But most blue-eyed cats can hear perfectly fine.
Male Kitten vs. Female Kitten?
I sent in a question a couple of months ago on how to tell a boy kitten from a girl. I have waited a few months, and now I tried again. The kittens are now 9 weeks old and growing fast. I still can’t tell if they are boys or girls. I have looked at a ton of pictures to try and help, but the kittens are either too old, or to young. Both of the kittens have little bumps on there back ends, so at first I thought they were boys. But I looked at their mom, who also has sort of a bump on her back end. Another thing, all of the pictures I look at, don’t seem to match the kittens. They don’t look like girls, nor do they look like girls. Is there any good way to determine this without looking at how far the parts are?
I have named the kittens( who I have thought of as girls) Emma and Katie. Emma is grey and white calico with a striped tail, and some spots. Katie is a grey, tan, brown, and white calico with a striped tail. Snuffles, their mom is also a grey, tan, brown, and white calico. And Lucky, who we think is the dad, is orange and white calico, with a striped tail, and spots. If the kittens Emma and Katie are boys what should I name them?
My vet once told me that you can tell if a cat is a female if they have an opening in the back that looks like a vending machine coin slot! I’ve handled many kittens in rescue/foster care since then, and it works like a charm.
Also, calico cats are almost always female. If they are male, they will be sterile.

difference between male and female kittens?
i found a litter of kittens under my shed about a month ago, i am going to give them up for adoption, but everyone always asks “is it a girl?” “mom, is this a boy, i don’t want a girl” and different stuff… but how do you tell female kittens from male kittens?
It can be difficult at an early age to tell the difference, but if you look Real close, the Male Kittens will show signs of Small Testicles (Lumps) growing. I just received a new kitten from my Daughter. He’s Male but the little Fellow is Loaded (Big Balls) so it was not too hard to tell his sex…I hope you find good homes for them all.
