“Matata” the male kitten
I initially mistook “matata” to be a female as i am not familiar with kittens unlike dogs which i bred previously and are easy to sex at birth. Doll-Faced Persian kittens being fluffy are very difficult for a novice at breeding to distinguish the male kittens from the female. On Tuesday (22-6-2009), i took matata to the vet for his first dosage of vaccination and hence got his sex confirmed which put all mysteries of the past two and a half months to rest.
I am sure that many “first-time cat breeders” must have faced the same doubts that i faced in detecting the sex of their kittens.
