We took the cats to the vet the this week.
"Guess what," the vet said, "George is a girl."
Well we kind of already had a clue, since she had gone into heat. She is only 5 months old, so the vet wanted to wait another 3 weeks until her operation.
So now her name is Georgia, but we're still calling her George for short.
The vet said that Ginger is definitely a male. Hubby kept trying to change his name to Bear or anything else more masculine. Finally I showed him a picture of Ginger Baker, who used to play in a band called Cream. So he was satisfied that a man can have that name, and Ginger gets to remain Ginger.
Dusty is a female, as we thought. So in kitten sexing, we did not do very well: one out of three correct.
The younger kittens were born right around tax day, so they are about three and a half months old.
Jasmine gets along with all of them, except at feeding time, when she thinks that all food is her food.
