Kitty pics

From Wikipedia, I've learned that a group of cats is referred to as a clowder. I never knew that, same as I didn't know that the word for a neutered male is a gib, or that a female cat is a queen. I wonder if these terms are only used by breeders and people who take their cats to shows.

My moggies will never win any prizes, but that won't stop me showing you them. They've been my constant companions while I've been recuperating; lying down next to me or sitting down on top of me, sometimes the three of them together, sometimes just the two.

I knew the queen and the clowder, but not the gib.

Nice pics. I love the distainful glowers cats give!

Leila, Queen (and now in more ways than one) of the Baleful Glare! ;-)

I think clowder is a very strange word. It reminds me of chowder to much, and makes me hungry.
