Heat-induced random question:  
If you are familiar with how to sex a cat (: for females, ; for males), and have some background in cultural studies, how would somebody go around gendering a cat?

well, I would observe the cat's gender performance and see if it was performing "male cat", "female cat", "gender-fuck cat", "androgenous cat", "drag cat" or any more of thousands of cat gender constructions

then i would realize it's much more interesting to feed the cat catnip instead *g*

Hey, I never said it was a good idea - but it seems interesting in the abstract. And when we talk about cat's gender constructions, do we mean within "cat" society, or the gender roles we project onto the cat? And how does the spaying or neutering of the cat within its conscious lifetime affect its (our) choice in assigning it a gender identity? These, and many other questions, have been relegated to the arena of "too much time on my hands" . . .
