My parents' "neutered male" had kittens this week. Six of them. Solid black.
I took him (and his brother) in to be spayed at 4 months of age, thinking they were both girls. The clinic called a few hours later, said they were both boys, and we said to neuter them anyways.
Anyone in MI want a nice black kitten a few weeks before Thanksgiving? Well socialized. Will transport for their spay/neuter. Have no major issues with indoor vs. outdoor. (Obviously. Since "he" managed to get pregnant.)

Wait. You thought the kitten was a female, took it to a vet clinic to be spayed, were told it was a male and the vet clinic said they neutered it, and now it had kittens?

You could contact the vet and give him or her a ration of ***. At least you ought to be able to get a refund on your service fee for the neutering.
I would think, however, that this might constitute a golden opportunity to get a kitten who would be good friends with your puppy. Then you can take your dog into the homes of people who own cats, and he will know how to behave himself. I introduced my dog to cats at an early age, and it has paid off.
Also, look at it this way you will have years of cute photographs if you can get a kitten to bond with your puppy. You might even be able to come up with a Pet Stars act and make your debut on Animal Planet.

Since my kitten exposure is very limited, I've got to ask. It isn't obvious whether it is male or female from the outside? And if in fact they did surgery, what exactly did they remove?

Please spay/neuter before they go to new homes. You don't want this to happen again. Many vets will speuter at 2 months or 2 lbs. whichever comes first.

My kitten exposure is also very low, however, I do know that it is very difficult to tell boy kittens from girl kittens. IIRC, most of the bits are inside, and even vets have difficulties knowing which is which.

It's the difference between a : and a ; so on a small or foofy kitten you have to be up close and personal, plus have a little experience, to tell the difference. Black kittens are perhaps the toughest (tabbies tend to have nice highlighting to emphasize their attributes!)

I agree with Suja though, the big question is what happened at that spay clinic? Did they get cages confused? Did they even return the right kitten to Emily's family? Did they put the same kitten under anesthetic twice and skip this one? Some kind of big screw-up has to have happened. (

Yeah and I would really check this place out and see WHO did the operating!

It's not as obvious as it is with puppies, and when the kittens are very young, it can be difficult to tell unless you've a lot of experience sexing kittens. I don't know at what age these were, ah, speutered, or not speutered. By 6 - 8 weeks it's pretty easy for most people to tell whether it's male or female.
And if in fact they did surgery, what exactly did they remove?

That's what I was wondering.
