Boys or girl kittens?!

Ok so one of the outside kittens we thought was male, turns out to be a female! Now I'm completely confused about the kittens inside! I have looked all over the internet at diagrams, colorings and stuff and am still not sure on all of them.
(I'm pretty sure that JD and Kit are both female now, but not completely)

One thing I have noticed is tiny nipples on most of them. Is this a for sure sign that their female? If so then all of them probably female. It's very hard to tell with some of them by looking at their bottoms. -.-

Does anyone have any suggestions besides taking them to the vet? My sister is going to paris in a week or two, so we can't take them to the vet until next month (to get fixed), but I really want to know NOW. :cry:

Nope all cats have nipples. And they can have a varying number of them too, mine have between 4-8. The males should have little knickers by now so you could tell them apart. (Don't worry either they don't take it personal, I took in a stray I swore was a male and turned out she was the mother cat!) Best of luck with the kittens!:D

My Vlad also has nipples. When he was a kitten I thought he was female, but I got him when he was about 6 weeks old I believe, and he had a teeny tiny little um...sack. :D

You would not be the 1st to make a mistake (I've done it ,myself, lol). Here is a good page that may help =- I could list a bunch of ideas I have always used but it often comes just with experience and time but even then, we make mistakes, lol:

That was one of the links I used, and was going to look for it...you beat me to it.

Good luck with the kittens, Kit'sGirl.

The *Ahem* holes are farther apart on a male, it's easy if you have more then one kitten and more then one sex. Hold 2 at a time together, then you will notice the difference (unless they are the same sex) :o

Sometimes the males have a wider, heavier head than the girls and aren't as delicate looking.
