Does anyone know if there's a dictionary out with cat speaking terms? I like the idea of making one. The tabbies just invented a new one, SPOING. I love it! But we all have so many words we use that is "our" language. Is there one? If not, what if we did one!!! We could sell it! What do you think? If so, I'll start jotting them down.

Just read through the wealth of all the beloved Catster diaries, and we are sure you will find tons of stuff that is known as catspeak!

Meowmy learned all these purrfected mewsings and o-purr-tuna-tees fur words that were kittenish right here!
And just think of all the words we have for barfies, newmies and IP's...MOL!

Newmies was one of the first ones we thought of. MOL

How about "purritos" for when we are all wrapped up and snuggly?
Mom said that the other day to Rusty's doc and she just kinda looked at Mom and grinned. She had never heard the expression but she understood what I meant!

YES! Love that one and I'd never heard that one either. So do this. Give me Purrito and your definition for it and I'll jot it down in my notes. Any others you can think of do it that way too.

Okay then! I call dibs! I'll start putting one together. I'll have to request everyone's words and terms for them.

I think purrito came from the LOL Cat website. It is when you wrap up a cat in a snuggly material or they wrap themselves up (like my brother Ivan when he got stuck in the coat sleeve!) Picture a burrito wrapped in a fuzzy blanket with a cute kitty inside!

Thanks Tigger! I'm sure we'll get many more over the next couple of days. I don't think they have to be necessarily from Catster. I'm not going to be writing who made them up, just that we kitties speak it.

We have this one at home but I'm sure you would be able to improve it with all the terms on Catster

Thanks Mr. D. I figured there had to be something out there. I'll check it out and see if it's anything like what we could do.

Mom told me that one time she was talking to someone, I think work related, and she said to the person "that's pawsome!" And she realized she was doing Catster speak! MOL!!
