How To Tell The Sex Of A Baby Kitten?

A: It is very easy to tell the sex of a kitten at birth. Just look at the tail first. If it is pointing upwards, then your kitten is male and will have a large ‘snowball’ shaped tail hanging between its legs. Female kittens do not have this shape on their tails. The second thing you need to check for are the genitalia (penis). Look at where they open out from under his tail flap, if they are situated in front of each other then he’s male but if there is only one opening that points down, then she’s female! Also look inside her abdomen/ stomach – you can see where she was born by looking at how long or short her umbilical cord was when she was born . If it wasn’t too short or too long, take note of which end came out first as this will be important later on…
