Today I am going to talk about words used to describe a group of cats. Please bear in mind that I have not been with a group of cats since I was a little kitten with my mommy and brothers and sisters. Whenever I see another cat I am scared and I hiss at them, so it took a lot of courage for me to write this post and to imagine a lot of cats in one place.
If Simon and Sammy came to visit me, Mommy would have a clowder of cats in the house. Mommy said that they may come to visit sometime and I have to be nice to them but it is scary. The three of us could also be called a clutter of cats. I wonder if that’s because we would clutter up the place. If Jinx and Morgan came from next door to visit me (But I hope they don’t) we could also be called a glaring of cats. Well, I’m sure I would glare at them. We could also be called a pounce. That tells what I would do.
When I was a kitten there were a lot of us in the litter. We could have been called a kindle of kittens or an intrigue of kittens. Don’t you find that intriguing?
There is even a name for a group of feral cats. Mommy’s friend Carol said there were feral cats living close to her. They would be called a dowt or a destruction.
DESTRUCTION! Oh, this is getting too scary for me. End of post.
