...but no, there isn't a new kitty in the house. There are still only four of us Ballicai.
In short? Brainball, our Alpha Cat and Fearless Leader, is a Mancat.
To find out how this painfully obvious fact was missed by the beans, go read MaoMao's post on the subject. Beans can be so dense! And they can be untrustworthy secretaries. We kitties know whether our siblings are male or female, it's Mom (and a VET) who got confused! Floofiness can obscure private parts rather well, it seems!
Oh well, Mom -- all of us Ballicai forgive you, even if we are rather amused. *smile*
Please purr for Brainball -- he's doing better but is still under the weather. And we Ballicai do love our big BROTHER, *giggle*. I was so happy to see him when he came back from the vet yesterday that I gave him a very affectionate nose kiss.
(Darling Mickeybear -- what would you do if beans mistook you for a girl?)
