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.

How pretty they are!

I just learned a new cat word: bunt. That's when a cat butts you with his head so you'll pet him. My cat bunts better than Phil Rizzuto.

That's fantastic, thank you! I always thought it strange I couldn't find an English word for what we in Dutch describe as kopjes geven.
