Surprise! Lily is a BOY!
Remember Lily, the little foster kitten we have had here since mid July? Well, the past week I've been looking at the back of that cat thinking it looked like "she" had the same plumbing in the back end as her two brothers. I took the kittens back to the shelter Wednesday afternoon so they could be spayed and neutered on Thursday. I forgot to tell them that I thought perhaps Lily was a male. Thursday morning the shelter called me to inform me that Lily was a BOY! Ha! I told them I suspected as much. We cracked up because on the bottom of the form for Lily was a section for Comments: "Sex Change: Lily > Lyle" says the vet's office. ;o) It feels very strange now thinking of this kitten as a boy instead of a girl. Our daughter has chosen the name Lalo (pronounced Lay Low) for him. We're trying to remember not to call him Lily. Think maybe we've given him a complex?! The last batch of kittens had one male and two females except Claudia looked like she was packing some testosterone makers and they confirmed it when we took them back. Claudia became Claude, just like that. Why can't cats have their plumbing in different places, like dogs and llamas?
