Rare kitten of ‘neither sex’ confounds vet

A homeless kitten has caused a stir among staff at an animal charity after it was found to have neither male nor female sex organs. Hope was originally thought to be a female cat when it was admitted to Cats Protection’s rescue centre in Warrington, but vets found no external sex organs. Vets said they have seen hermaphrodite cats – with male and female sex organs – even though they are very rare, but Hope has no sex organs, externally or internally.
