All of us Crew members have been around The Cat Blogosphere for about 5 1/2 years now and we've learned lots of cat talk!! Here is just a small sample, in no particular order, along with the "human" translation. We can't wait to see everyone's lists!!

It's funny how some of those words have found their way into our vocabulary and we haven't even noticed!

You have a great list. We only did the one word for Squillions and posted lots of our old squillion pictures.
