    Do you have a Gender preference for your pets? Feel free to share, I feel liked I tend to have this conversation with people so I figured it might be an interesting to hear people's preferences, reasonings or stories.

    I have 3 Bengal boys and I feel like the boys are all around friendly and easy going all the time. My savannah girl is literally bi-polar. She can be the biggest lover I have ever known, and then want nothing to do with you. She's also extremely over dramatic. Maybe it's just the breed difference, but I've always had females that love you one day and not acknowledge you the next, where as all of my pastboys have all been pretty similar in personalities regardless of breed.

    Every female cat I've ever had has been a drama queen Diva. Talkative, demanding, prissy. I loved them to pieces but I prefer boys. My guys are lovers with enough pi$$ & vinegar to make life interesting. I still have an 18yr old female DSH and her divaness has grown in proportion to her age. She makes life a bit rough for the savannahs.

    I have always had boys until Zuri...I also think the boys are more laid back. I love Zuri to death, but she is very demanding, chirps quite a bit and I call her the whiner because she always seems to be whining for me to play with her, to feed her to entertain her...and everything is hers...poor Taj just sits and wait for her to take a nibble of his food before he can eat. Zuri eats whole prey and Taj eats canned so when I put his down, she hurries over to his bowl and he patiently waits for her to take a few bites and then he eats.

    She is a princess...maybe a queen :eek:

    Well at least we can all agree that the females are drama queens. My f5 is more dramatic than my f2, she's the biggest growler I have ever heard. We have had our GSA puppy for 2 months now and she growls when he enters the room, and the whole time he's there even if he can't see her, she growls over food, and every other thing that could potentially make her mad. I love her to death but boy is she over dramatic.

    I absolutely love your personality descriptions here. Talkative demanding and prissy. I think you may have just summed it all up there.

    Oh, my boys are definitely much sweeter and even-tempered! This includes the stud boys and my fat neutered Oci :) Most of my girls are prissy princesses....I agree that one day they are all over you, demanding affection and attention, and the next day (or hour) you don't even exist. The boys always seem to get along with everyone equally. The girls have to have their little spats over who is the reigning queen for that day.....;p

    I'd agree that mostly the boys are more laidback and sweet...but then Baz is very very demanding of my attention! Out of all of them, he's the most needy of me all the time.
    In most the litters, it is the girls that are the naughty ones...the first out of the crate, the first to learn to climb things and get into trouble... the boys just follow along like sidekicks :)

    Now, translating that into human behaviour...
    Jokes aside, I do recognize our girls in the descriptions above, but we do have boys that are very much there, too. However, they are more constantly (mis)behaved. And the difference between castrated and intact males is absolutely there. I agree with what missmk1 says, the girls almost act bipolar. At the same time, they are usually the culprits (sorry, the cats that are never anywhere near) when something happens, they act far more inquisitive and technically proficient than the boys.
    But which I prefer?
    Impossible to answer on a gender basis, and really on an individual basis too, like all cats they go out of their way to be loveable when they want something, and they sucker me into it!

    This is how I describe male versus female in the cat world...

    Males- even SVs- tend to worship you. They think the moon and stars were hung upon you. They ADORE YOU.

    Girls- they love ya, but only when they want something. LOL.
