Thursday Thirteen: 13 Cat-Words

For this Thursday Thirteen, I've been thoroughly thumbing through my thesaurus and dictionary. You see, I think it's very important for a cat -- especially we executive mancats -- to be literate, to use appropriate cat words and to understand their meanings ... lest we appear to be thick-headed, unthinking third-rate thugs, thrashing around in the throes of thunderstruck illiteracy!

Therefore, I would like to share with you Thirteen Cat Words from my voluminous vocatulary:

1) Catcall: A signaling device we use to give marching orders to humans to fill food bowls, open doors, give us chin scritches and their undivided attention.

2) Catty-corner: The proper location for our litter box.

3) Caterwaul: What we sometimes hit when we miss the litter box.

4) Catwalk: Our daily exercise regimen, consisting of short shuffles to the food bowl with occasional detours to the catty-corner.

5) Catkin: What happens to kitties who didn't have hoohaectomies or ladygardenectomies.

6) Catalyst: What humans use to do our shopping, i.e. 1. Stinky goodness 2. Temptations 3. Litter 4. Toys 5. More Temptations

7) Catacomb: A device used on kitty spa days to remove cat-a-mats from our furs.

8) Catapult: What we do when the catacomb gets caught in a cat-a-mat.

9) Catnip: What we do when you "pult" too hard with the catacomb.

10) Catgut: An essential part of our insides, which requires constant filling with stinky goodness and Temptations.

11) Catsup: Mealtime; a method for filling the catgut.

12) Catnap: What we do when we're not catsupping.

13) Category: The yucky stuff we yak up all over the house when we've catsupped too much.

Those are great new vocabulary words. We will have to write them out 5 times and then use each one in a sentence so we remember them.
