I got a new sister!

Well -- I don't know how to tell you this but I have a new sister!

I would like you to meet --
We had to take Oz to the Dr. because "she" was breathing funny so she got some medicine for it -- nothing serious....when we were there they told Beth Oz was a girl.  I guess it's hard to tell if a kitty is a boy or girl when they are little so when the first Dr. saw Oz at 3 weeks old
they were wrong....

Oz has been asking me over and over again why I keep calling her
 my little brother 'cause she was a girl. 
I thought Oz was just joking around with me.
Later -- Remington -- now I have a sister! -- out!

Gloria said...

That is quite a story! But Ozabella sure fits her. I kinda thought she was to cute to be a boy, lol Have fun you two!

Rebecca and Daisy Mae said...

Hehe... oops! We are glad that you know she is not a he! Its hard to tell when they are five weeks (usually this is the age our fosters are when we get them!) Well, the good thing is that Oz is still too little to know you had it wrong, and there shouldn't be any lasting identity crisis.

Zona said...

Now you'll have to be even more protective of her - that's what big brothers do with little sisters, right?

Did you know we have a BOY duck named Stella? Apparently, it's hard to tell boys from girls with duckies too.


The 'splorin' Wolfies said...

hehehe--those things happen sometimes. it seems to suit him better to be a girl anyways ;-)

Maggie Mae said...


Peoples can be silly sometimes.
Ozabella is such a cutie!

Woofs and Licks,

Madi and Mom said...

Oh my Cats and Dogs Rem you have mom rolling on the floor laughing. That look on your face is priceless. Give your photographer a raise.

Ozabella we are glad your little cough isn't serious we expect your throat was sore from trying to tell the Big Guy you were a girl.
You and Beth have your hands full keeping all the men in line.
If you have an girl cat questions, you can count on me to help you,

Frankie Furter said...

Well I'm thinkin' you could still call her Oz as a Nickname. That way it won't be too traumatic for her. Heck I can't even tell a full grown Boy cat from a full grown Girl cat. Butt I think that is beclaws they are always runnin' away from me.

Lian said...

Oh, she is cute! You are so lucky to have such a cute sister.

Sugar the Golden Retriever said...

Woof! Woof! That's FUNNY Remington. Poor Ozabella. Sending Oza my Golden Healing Thoughts for her quick recovery ...Lots of Golden Woofs, Sugar

Priscilla said...

What a lovely little sister you've, Ozabella is so beautiful, luckily I didn't think Oz was handsome before as I always thought 'he' was so cute!!! I'm so glad 'he' is a 'she' now : )

Any party or celebrations ???

Gus said...

Woo Hooo...Sissies are great fun. Particularly when they are NOS (Not our Species)


Stella said...

You should buy her a pretty collar to wear when she gets a little bigger, like Huffle wears. Ozabella is a lovely, unique name and she is most deserving of it!


A MilShelb Mom said...

Yay for new sisters!

Keiko (from Kitty Trio) said...

We hear of this happening a lot. Hi Ozabella! mawhawhaw!

Ruby and Penny said...

Ozabella is adorable, but she was adorable as Oz too. Congrats on the sister.
Love Ruby & Penny

Ms. ~K said...

Yes, it is difficult to know at that age...
Ozabella is a beautiful girl and sweet sis!

Bruschi said...

OMD! They sure don't mistaken us dogs like that! Cool that you got a lil sis though!!

The Army of Four said...

Ozabella!!!!!! Totally cool. Sisters rock, honestly!
Play bows,

Amy and The House of Cats said...

Wow, that is so funny! Well, I guess a Stella/Oz paring is out - but Gus is sure interested in Ozabella! And we think Oz works ok for a nickname for her still - we think it is cute! And she is a cutie no matter what! Of course, she may be a bit of a tomboy with you teaching her some boy stuff - but that is ok because we know she will still love to learn lots of stuff from you!

Tom, Tama-Chan, Sei-Chan, Yuu-Chan and Bibi-Chan said...

That is so funny, Ozabella! When I was about your age, they called me "Sir" and then I went to the vet... and the rest is history! Hurray for girls!


Leonardo said...

Hey Remy,
Boy you sure had Mom going for a second. She thought you were talking about a NEWFIE sister!

Since Delilah and Vinnie had a litter in May, Mom thought Mary might be heading to Minnesota sometime in July to make a special delivery.

Ozabella is such a beautiful name and I'm sure "Oz" will be just as great as a sister as she was as a brother. I hope her breathing problem is nothing serious.
Your BroLeo.

Jacqueline said...

Your post made our Mommy LOL!!(cats are hard to tell, we think that's happened to most cat lovers at one time or another!)...Ozabella is too adorable and you are such a wonderful big brother, Rem=nothing has changed but her name, sweetie!...Love the Ozabella tummy shot=cute overload for sure!!...kisses sweet friends...Calle, Halle, Sukki

JackDaddy said...

That's just like a woman - always changing their mind (or other parts!) :)

Lucy the Cat said...

LOL! And just when I didn't think she could be any cuter, that last shot is the cutest!! I just love her tummy and the way she's holding her paws.

Ginny said...

Wow, Rem!! Looks like you had a surprising and confusing day! But there's nothing sweeter than a little girl with a big brother to protect her! And your photos show just how gentle you are with her. I think she'll never come to any harm with big brother around. Alley cats beware!!

Dory and the Mama said...

Boy...those kitties start confusing you at an early ega don't they??

Congrats on your new sister Remington!!!

Mango the Maltese kiddo said...

What a pleasant surprise, no wonder I'm so attracted to you, muahhh!
I think I need to see the Vet, what if my first Vet was wrong?

The Teacher's Pets said...

Hello Remington!
The first photo of you is funny beclaws you look totally shocked and bewildered by the news that your brother is actually a sister! BOL!
Now, Remington, you know girls are smart, don't you? So how come you didn't believe your sister everytime she told you that she was NOT a boy? Hee! Hee!
Remember, she is going to start strutting around wearing pink collars and drinking from pink food and water bowls as soon as pawsible!
XOXO...Daisy the Coonhound


Oh Remington, your new sister is adorable not like the cougars in my back yard. Such pretty eyes too!!

My elephant's name is "Big Pinkie Poo" cause I gots a another stuffie that I call Pinkie Poo already.

Hopefully you caught the mistake before Ozabella was traumatized to the point of needing lifelong therapy and an appearance on the Jerry Springer Show! :) You are still a great big BROTHER, Remington.

TwoSpecialWires said...

Remington. Your sissie is just as cute as her name. And that's CUTE! Have fun with her. We have a feeling you are going to be best of pals.
