i need help on telling apart the girls and the boys.
i think i know.. but im not so sure.

well my sisters cat.. (Foxy).. had 4 kittens and she had one that looks like my old cat that suposably got taken.. orange fur.. but maybe a little darker. and they good news is that we're keeping him. I dont think he'll get as big as Friskie was.. because Foxy still looks like she's 5 or 6 months old when she's already a year.

Its really hard to tell when they're so little yet. This link has a diagram that may help you determine but you probably won't know for sure until they are a bit older.

i have found that it's really easy to sex the kittens when they are really young (under 2 weeks). how old are your kittens? the males appear to be *all* genitalia at this point and it's pretty easy to discern what sex they are -- not sure if this is because they aren't quite as furry yet or if they just haven't started growing into their "stuff"!! Shocked

just flip each kitten over -- on the boys you should see a definite area where testicles will start growing in, as well as a little bump just below that area. i'm assuming you have more than one in the litter, so a good comparison between kittens should help you sex them as well.

Are there eyes open yet? Do you have any pictures of them that you can post?

I think you might find this site helpful:
