What a beautiful face Chester has. I am suspicious that my Florence may be a male. She will be two in August. I may have to take some pictures and get them on here too.

Thank you.
My first Florence was a male and renamed Hugo. Our Florence now is definitely female.
There's so many torts turning two this summer. Summer 2013 must have been a bumper year for SW new arrivals.

Still young but I would think Chester needs a name change or she will be getting a complex

Plenty!
I've compared her to the other girlies today and although her tail is a bit longer she's very similar and the boys had much longer tails at the same size. So I guess she is female.

We're renaming her Esme.
It means beloved, esteemed and emerald. My engagement ring and favourite stone is an emerald, so it fits perfectly as she's very beloved too.

Unless anyone else wants to have a bash at sexing and thinks different to female, we're going to start calling her Esme tomorrow. I know it'll take a few days to get used to the new name but it compliments the other female torts names and we like it here.

Esme is a beautiful name for her! I love your reasoning behind it.

Thank you. Have you had any thoughts for Florence yet? I'm sure you'll think of something equally lovely.
