What Words Would Cats Come Up With

Category: Captain's Logs
Posted by: weedles
Okay, so here’s the scoop.  What words would we, meaning us cats, come up with if we could affect the english vocabulary?  Surprisingly, that’s a question that has been asked a lot recently on my blog (not really…just go with it) and here are the answers.
  • Feedme.  This one was submitted by me.  FEEDME!!!! is loosely translated in english, to “feed me” or “give me food”.  I have noticed that it is very easy to add ‘please’ on the end, but that's just taking the "catt-i-ness" out of the word if you do that.  Please respect our new word.
  • Wy.  This one is the one that your cats may mew softly after being preceded by a “seriously, I’m trying to nap here!” look.  It is translated to, “why” in english.  And yes, yes!  I know it’s not very original…but coming up with new words isn’t my idea of a “priority” either.  Humans already had that covered a long time ago…
  • Im_getting_very_angry_but_you_probably_don’t_know_it.  Ocee said that this word was lame, and that it sounded like an email adress, but I don't see the resemblence between this word and an email adress at all.  However, I do see the "lameness", and I have a good exscuse: My schedule is chock-full of napping, and I don’t have ALL day to ponder new words.  Also this one is pronounced “Me-e-ow”.  And humans, this one will surely be easy to recognize when your cat meows it.
  • Meeh…  THIS one is my original, in fact I was saying it nearly every day before I realized that I had come up with it completely on my own!  So this one means “I want something”  or, “I want that” in english.  And it's put to great use!  You, and that means humans as well as cats, can use it in anyconversation.  Watch:
    1. Son:  Pass the corn, Mother!

                       Mother:  Absolutely dear, while we’re at it—Meeh (pointing toward the mashed potatoes, and choking down a hairball)  Also, I am a cat, so some of these "human" scenarios may not be entirely accuarate. 

  2. Sad stranger:  I’m so devastated!  So devastated!  SO DEVISTATED!

     Passing person:  Why?

    Sad stranger:  (between sobs) Meeh.

  3.  This one is for cats, and is a good example of how very cool you actually sound when you say “Meeh”.

                 Cat 1: Meeh.

                 Cat 2: Meeeeh.

                 Cat 1: You didn’t say it right, cool dude.

                 Cat 2:  That was an accident.

                 Cat 1: 'K

                 Cat 1: Meeh.

                 Cat 2. Meeh.

So really, as demonstrated above (Yes!  I know it’s not the cute, fuzzy, warm answer you humans were looking for in this article,  but this is MY answer, and if you haven’t noticed, I’m not a cute, fuzzy, warm cat!), Meeh, is a very versatile conversation piece.  I like to use it when I want attention.  I’ll lumber over to my pet, and then gently meow “Meeh”.  Oh, and I’m only gently meowing anything  because my voice box is just so hoarse from all the fights I get into, NOT because I am a gentle cat.  (Even though I am gentle toward my pets).

So really that’s all for today folks!  And good riddance, I mean good-bye for the rest of the weekend!

Signed, Shtankadoodle (Your furry, Louisiana, rag doll, ‘fluff-a-muffin” if you will.  Just don’t call me that and we’ll be alright)

A hospital bed.  Wha…?  Why? Again?  Nugget’s bleary yellow eyes struggled to adjust to the brightness of the cold, concrete room he was being kept in.  A long row of hospital beds lined the endless, grimy wall, but his eyes were too unfocused to see them.  Instead, it was the smell of weak alcohol cleaner that told him exactly where he was. Nugget tried to push himself up onto his legs, but a sharp, stabbing feeling rent his stomach.

Button’s paws pressed against the iron door, supporting her as she stood up on her two hind legs and tried to peer down the long, narrow row of identical white cells.  The only thing different about each individual cell were the foul creatures that inhabited them, and really, Button thought, even they didn’t seem to vary much in size or demeanor.

As if the threat of a comet bound for the Solera Station didn’t seem looming enough, with the entire ship induced into a nervous, whispered panic, Subcommander Ocee could only keep from biting her claws and resisting the impulse to shrink away into a tight cranny—a box, a nook in the insulation, a raccoon trap—anything would do, really, to get away from this news:  Lieutenant Lucky had just confirmed that the comet everybody was worried about was only seventeen minutes from impact.
