well obviously a girl can get pregnant, not too much of a problem if its going to be a house cat, boys can be 'smelly' unless castrated, i would either spayed/castrated when they are old enough, great choice of pet :)

As long as you get the cat neutered you shouldnt have any problems.
I have had both males and females....always had them doctored.
Toms have a habit of 'spraying' to mark their area which can be a nuisance sometimes!
Females are a smaller cat and cost more to get neutered than Toms.

Either are loving animals.

Have alook around the rescue centres where they offer neutering and tagging at reduced or all in prices.

know a little about them.

I have two girls now 10years old, both have been spade, never had any problems with them, apart from bring dead birds, mice etc into house, and live ones too, which is fun!

i cant say much about male cats as i have never had one, but my females are great, very easy, but the same as most pets suppose it depends on their background and how they are treated in the begining.:)

but good luck iam sure not a lot in it, just personal preference. :thumbsup:

Hi,
I know a bit - i have 4 rescued Persians .Cats are fantastic pets - not recommend a kitten though to any one with small children they can injure them too easily by pulling them about.
I have 2 males and 2 females - i actually find them all very loving animals -maybe the boys more than the girls if i had to choose -but it depends on temperament , where they have come from and if rescued -what from and what sort of cruelty have they experienced !!??
Definately need neutering whatever sex- too many unwanted in rescue centres now.
Anything else please feel free to ask me.

On Blue Peter it said that boy cats are more likely to affect any alergies than girl cats because it's their sweat that people are usually allergic to and tom-cats are usually sweatier.

Yup I have to agree Tom cats are sweatier!!

I have 3 moggies,2 female 1 tom and my tom cat has sweaty feet!! He is the most loving though,loves his strokes and cuddles,the females can be a bit more aloof at times.All cats vary widely in temperament,I have a highly strung female,a soft,soppy smelly male and a huntress!!

Given a choice I'd go for a female cat. My 2 male bengals still spray despite being neutered.
If its going to be a housecat, it'd be worth reading up on which breeds are better disposed to being kept indoors. I planned to keep mine as house cats, but they had too much energy so I had to install a cat flap (and get them chipped).

i would personally get a boy they are very much lazy cats i have 3 boys and they are great ive had 2 girls in the past and been nothing but trouble i find the girls always brought dead animals birds etc in but boys just are very homeley all my boys only ever go out for a pee and love being indoors where females seem to be so more active this bear in mind is after the cats have been done they turn into lazy old men lol where girls still wanna have fun!!

I agree! :giggle:

thanks for all the advice....i think it may come down to what one i warm to now really...

I'd go for a boy cat, in my experience they're more affectionate and friendlier.

I think spraying is only a problem with cats that weren't snipped at a young age, I own 3 cats now and have lived in houses with 7 others over the years, none of them ever sprayed in the house.
