thank's. not gonna lie, i wasted several hours working it out, but it's useful to have a full list of characters with the relevant genders, particularly if, like me, you plan to perform it

The Cheshire Cat is male! :p (well at least is refered as "his" in chapter 8)

`Well, it must be removed,' said the King very decidedly, and he called the Queen, who was passing at the moment, `My dear! I wish you would have this cat removed!'

The Queen had only one way of settling all difficulties, great or small. `Off with his head!' she said, without even looking round.
While I DO envision the Cheshire Cat as male, you have to remember that the Queen ordered the execution without looking around. In other words, she didn't even look to see what gender the Cat was. She just assumed it was a he.

Or maybe I'm reading too deeply into things.
