Skinny Pete, as it turns out, is NOT A BOY. I was pottying the kittens Saturday, and I looked at Skinny Pete’s back end to be sure he was clean, and I thought “Hmm. Well, that is NOT a boy!”
I called Fred in for a second opinion, and he agreed.
Skinny Pete is a girl. I guess I really just NEVER look at kittens’ back ends except to be sure they’re clean. And Fred only looked at their back ends once or twice, so I’d know whether I had boys or girls. Last time he looked, they were about a week old, and it’s not super easy to tell the sexes of kittens at that age.
So, I repeat (and I will be repeating it again in the days to come for the skimmers) – Skinny Pete is a GIRL.
I have no plans to change her name, though I did joke about renaming her “Slender Petra.”
As I’ve mentioned, Fred never bothers to learn the names of the fosters and gives them all nicknames to keep them straight. Yesterday I let him steal this awesome picture to post on his Facebook page. His caption is below the picture.
