How to Tell the Sex of Your Kittens
This kitten sexing guide will show you how to tell if a kitten is a boy or a girl at a glance. After reading this short guide sexing kittens will never be a problem for you again.
When your new kittens are born and mum and babies are settled down it is not unusual to want to know what sex the kittens are………in fact I would say sometimes that some people find it vitally important to know just what sex their new kittens are!
Your queen and the new babies could not care less though and as far as I know still do not come with little labels on so I thought it may be useful to put down my experiences on this page.
When comparing a male and female kitten together the differences are usually fairly obvious but imagine having a litter of boys or a full litter of girls!!!!
I find the best time to determine a kittens sex is either when they have just been born ‘still wet’ or when they are about 2 – 3 weeks old. I personally prefer to check them when they are born.
For the purposes of this article I have decided to use 3 week old kittens in the photographic examples in conjunction with diagrams to try and show the clear differences that can be seen in a small kittens genitals.
So how can you tell if a kitten is male or female?
