That's hilarious! And, it's how my Minky and Mitzi morphed into Mikey and Garfield. glad it all worked out.

I completely agree. and I don't think I'm being "cruel," just practical.

hohohohohoh

so are you going to keep him? I know Julia would never tolerate another cat in the house, but many other cats are not quite so territorial.

Don't worry, jen. Buck and I were snuckered a time or two when it came to sexing kittens. That's why our shop kitty, Julie, really should be called Julius and why our outside twins, Thelma and Louise, became Thelma and Luis.

When I was a little girl and my dad was doing his medical internship we had an orange Persian kitty we called Mitzi. One day Daddy decided he was going to take her to the med school to spay her. Just as he was about to pack her up and go he noticed s(he) had "jewels." Good thing he didn't follow through because all the other interns would've surely had a field day with his "mistake."

I wouldn't hesitate one moment to spay even if she was preggers..........we had that dilemma, too, after taking care of one litter and trying to find good homes for the 3 of them........Mama Cat was in NO hurry to wean them, either.........finally had to separate her from the 3 kittens and get them used to kitten food..........vet said to do so.........we kept the male and 5 years later she still treats him like Everybody Loves Raymond.......what a Mama's boy............she still hugs him and licks him.........yes, they are both fixed........we thought she might be pregnant, too, but she wasn't........

Ya, everyone at work thought it was hilarious. They said only something like this could happen to you. I'm glad it turned out this way though. I'm going to take him to my regular vet in April when I have a day off of work I'm taking for another Drs appointment. Anyway... here's the infamous Ebony lol...

What a beautiful cat! LOL at the gender mix up. As others have said, I've done it myself, and needed to get creative on the name change. At least you chose a non-gender specific name!
