We have had our kitten, Clover, for a month. Everyone is entirely smitten. She is playful but loving and is extremely tolerant of Jasper carrying her around everywhere. Basically her grace and poise make Maggie look like a pathetic dolt desperate for attention (which is exactly what she is. But she’s a sweet dolt.) Clover likes to rile up the dog at times:
We are enjoying our cat but there is one small detail that we overlooked until recently:
Clover has testicles.
She is apparently a he. I have to say that I’m very disappointed. I just like girl creatures better; being a girl myself and all. But in a couple of months Clover will be an “it” anyway. I guess it’s for the best–orange cats don’t look good in a pink collar anyway. Sigh.

But true, blue and green and brown look better with orange, so it was destined to be a boy!
this made me laugh out loud.
Oh, you crack me up.
How could you not know? Ha ha! That is really funny.
What cute pictures! Especially of York!
What?! I thought ALL cats were girls.
Men are NEVER moody, finicky, or unfriendly.
HA HA, that's a funny revelation.
And how did you get that first picture?
And HOW are girls not fawning over York ALL THE TIME?
I hate it when I find out that my cat has testicles.
I'm not a cat person but she/he is darling! And I can't believe that's York!
So stinkin' funny!
Totally wasn't expecting testicles, but I guess neither were you.
Since I read this post and the previous one all in one gulp all I'm thinking now is "testicles – just another accessory for Clover!"
Seems like there is someone you should give credit to for the testical discovery. You might have gotten all the way to from spaying to neutering if it weren't for me. I mean that person.
That happened to my neighbors' kids with their new dog–he went from being "Nikko" to "Nicole." At least Clover won't need a name change.
I have a boy cat named…Lucy…he unexpectedly grew testicles too, darn it. But, by that time his name had stuck, so we just went with it.
