Sshhh...neutering scary word...

Until September 7th I will give 10 cents to an animal charity for every comment. It is a way to help animal welfare without much effort at no cost. Comments help this website too, which is about animal welfare.

Sshhh...neutering scary word...

Hi everybody! It's Furby! I'm putting together a dictionary of words used by cats and their human servants and I need some help. I'm going to tell you what I've got so far and then you can help me add on to it.

My wonderful Godfather Michael wanted to do this article when mama was explaining a "poop-fest" to him a few days ago. I emailed him and told him he's not cute enough to get away with talking about poop. I AM!

So that's gonna be my first word. Then I'll give you some others and you can send me what you've got and we'll put them together into a BIG book. Maybe then our human servants will know what we're talking about.

POOP-FEST. This isn't a word just about poop. It's an event! A wonderful event involving lots of tasty food and hopefully even some good grade catnip to get the party going. A cat has a small stomach and to be able to eat a LOT, we have to...um...get rid of some of it. I don't like to puke it up as the dogs will gross me out by eating it. (How barbaric!).

I just go over to the litter box and poop. A lot. And then I dig in it like I'm trying to dig to China. I guess if you're a cat in China you can say you're trying to dig to the U.S. Teeheehee. Anyway, when a cat poops a lot for the sole purpose of being able to eat more food, we call it a poop-fest.

SNEAKERDOODLED. This means I've been snuck up on by one of my humans. Usually when I'm in the middle of a cat nap or when I'm doing something I'm not supposed to be doing.

HEEBEEGEEBEE ATTACK. This phrase is named after my best friend and cohort, Rat Heebeegeebee. He's usually fussing at me about my overindulgence in catnip. Or forgetting to invite him to a catnip party. Sorry, Rat. Rat lives across the world in the U.K. Sometimes I have to rent him a vacuum cleaner so he can fly to my house. Brooms are so out of it in the 21st century. He doesn't come to see me anyway. He's in love with our rescue Cassie. At least he can't fuss at me over sending a catnip junkie home under the influence. We always invite those too...well... you know... to sleep over in one of our many cat beds. I AM a responsible party giver!

SNOTTSNBOOGERS. This means exactly what it sounds like. It has a medical name. I think mama calls it an upper respiratory infection. You got a runny nose and every now and then you sneeze something across the room. Mama, I'm really sorry when I do this without any warning. Cats, if you ever get this, be careful where you sleep or you'll be meeting up with my next word.

VIOLATED. This is the worst word in the dictionary for cats. It always happens at the vets office and often follows hearing the word snottsnboogers. The vet or vet assistant usually does this near the beginning of the visit. Unless you have an experienced cat mama who's brave enough to try this at home. Violated means a thermometer has been inserted...never mind, I don't won't to spoil the surprise. It may also mean you're being checked for (shudder) intestinal WORMS! Eewwwhh! I'm SO happy I've never had those.

CAT-NIPTION. This happens a lot in my house. Usually around 3 a.m. It means the cats all go crazy at the same time playing or after food (or catnip). We run back and forth like something is chasing us. Or we may have a catniption when our humans are eating something we really really want a bite of. I want to warn you that during a true catniption, a cat may do anything to get what it wants. The word makes it sound like we're under the influence of catnip. We may be. Or we may just be wanting some catnip. All I can say is you'd better figure out what we want in a hurry during a catniption or somebody's gonna get hurt!

I hope to hear back from all of you with words I can add to my new dictionary. Cats, do your humans use any interesting words you'd like to share?

Good Show Furby NEW

Keep them coming, love it. Sure makes my day. Mind you, I may not let my four sweeties - Simba, Little Joe, Snickers and Bootstie see these, they might get more ideas than they already have.

Love this article
by: Ruth (Monty's Mom)

What a funny article! I just love Furby.

What is it about cats and 3 in the morning? Mine trains for the kitty Olympics at 3 a.m. by jumping on and off our waterbed. You know how some waterbed mattresses have baffles in them so they don't slosh? Ours isn't like that. Nothing like a 12 pound cat bouncing on it to make you feel seasick after awhile. He will be sleeping in his own room tonight. I hate to do that to him but I'm getting exhausted again and so is my husband. On the other hand, Monty is kind of chubby, so it's probably been good for him to jump on and off our bed for a solid two hours in the morning.

I like the poopfest one too. Monty has been having his own poopfest in the middle of the back yard. If the grass is long or if there are leaves on the grass he'll go in the middle of the yard. In the fall there were all these tiny piles of leaves back there, as if little elves had come and raked our yard for us. My husband used the sweeper back there to pick up the leaves and what was left when the leaves were gone were little piles of poop that had been buried under each pile of leaves by a small cat. Jeff calls these poops "Monty bombs."

On the bench
by: Walter

If you have a bench outside in the sun like we have each you can get your mammies to call you a Magistrate.
Sometimes our lad and me are a Magistrate each side of the front door and people admire our handsomeness and the mammies tell people we are important Magistrates.

Cats dictionaries is good
by: Jozef

As well as my real name I gets called The Tiny Man and Mr Cold Feet cos I was such a tiny boy when I comed and the mammies had to leave the heat on cos my feets got cold at night.
My buzz word is TAXI which when the mammie who I sleeps with announces it at night I makes my body camel shaped to be picked up and carried up the stairs to bed.
Furby I thinks that would be a CAB in your language. Gets your mammies to be a TAXI CAB and saves your legs.

One word per comment!
by: Michael

I think we all have a "Furby Dictionary" or Furby language. I certainly have. My Furby Dictionary is full of weird and wonderful (?) words.

I like poop-fest! In fact I like them all. I am a great fan of Furby language.

It would be great if everyone who visits and makes a comment, left one example out of their own Furby Dictionary.

For example Charlie my cat has a nick name: "Chag Boy" Totally weird but that is the fascination of the Furby Dictionary. You enter another word with a parallel language!

Maybe you have started something Elisa. Maybe we should have a competition or create a proper Furby Dictionary.

another word for you
by: Betty Dwoske

Hey Furby - the Dwoske cats have a couple for you....

Catattiutudy - it can refer to any one of the many "attitudes" of the cats in the house but it usually refers to one cat in particular who gets a little snotty if she's playing with another cat and the other cat is winning (mind you she started it). then she gets a huge cattitudy. or if you are petting her and she decides she is going to turn around and chomp on your fingers all the while still purring. you never knew it was coming. she's a foster and mom is worried she may have too big a cattitude for another family to handle....

Mooches - usually means moochers. like when you are trying to eat in peace and all you get is a furry tail in your face as someone is trying to help themselves to your dinner.
