DaisyMae's "Word of the Day": GENTLEMAN CAT


Here's another informative vocabulary lesson to build your FELINE LEXICON ...

From DaisyMae's Feline Dictionary of Terms and Phrases, the phrase of the day is:

GENTLEMAN CAT 1. (noun) ... jehn-tul-muhn kat ... An honorific signifying one who was formerly a "tom" has been neutered and is now free to enjoy more stimulating intellectual and social pursuits rather than simply "roaming 'round the hoochies" leaving kittens in his wake. (See also: post-hoohahectomy male)

Sentence example:
1. The Feline-Americans are a group of five gentleman cats and one lady.
2. After becoming a gentleman cat, Scraps ended his wandering and stayed closer to home.

My Mum says she prefers gentlemen cats as they are more cuddly and don't smell. Cousin Huna will soon become a gentleman cat.

Ah yes, "stimulating intellectual and social pursuits." Describes me to a "t".

It's nice to have so many "gentleman cats" in the blogosphere. My mom likes gentleman cats, too. She says that they're more cuddly and purry. Of course, she likes ME best ... Right, Mom?

I think most guys in our cat blogging community are gentlemen, as are Max and I. We can enjoy the ladies for the finer things in life.
