When Colleen Clarke-Murphy's vet told her the news, she said: "Did I just hear you right?"
After an exam of her cat Mittens in October, it was determined that the feline had both female and male genitalia. The vet recommended that Mittens be assigned a male sex.
If shock was Clarke-Murphy's first feeling, compassion was a close second. Clarke-Murphy told Canada's CBC News that she plans do whatever it takes to ensure the cat is healthy, since the feline currently has bowel issues and problems urinating as a result of having both male and female sex organs.

You may or may not investigate this matter depending on your reaction to the above video, which features a Russian cat that has a profound reaction to a can of olives. Without even touching the actual olives, the cat seems to become overwhelmed with … something. Euphoria? Disgust? It's hard to read the kitty mind.
What is certain, however, is that plenty of other cat owners have experienced this unusual, catnip-esque behavior and then posted online inquiring if anyone else knows what's up.
