Chaiyka Enjoys the Spring

Well, when the vet came over to take out the drainage "pipe" from Longfellow's healing abscess, he also checked over our new little one, Chaiyka. After a careful (ahem) examination, we were astonished to hear that she is actually a he! And, he is already operated (and sadly declawed, but we already knew that). We've had a lot of cats in our time, and I must say we have never been wrong about this type of thing. She, oops, he is petite, but maybe is young and will grow. Trouble is, we cannot get over saying "she" all the time!

As always, there's more to see at The Friday Ark and then Carnival of the Cats on Sunday.


  1. Are you going to keep the name now that you know she is a he?

  2. Well, Chaiyka is Polish/ Russian for seagull - regardless of sex, as far as I know....
