Friday Fanglish! Review Your Cat Slang Fluency!

Friday! It's time for Fanglish and this week we have a review of the past few weeks' lessons. Test your cat slang knowledge!

Annoyance expressed by flattening the ears

The Lady removed Maurice from the counter and he responded with clear ear-itation.

Big Tipper
A cat who enjoys tipping over glasses of liquid

As The Lady left the room, she picked up her glass of water because she remembered Snowball was as a big tipper.

Writer's Block
A cat's ability to block a human's attempts at typing

Mittens walked across The Lady's lap and rubbed his face all over her computer, giving her extreme writer's block.

Eddie Vetter
A cat whose low howls on the ride to the vet sound not unlike the vocals of Pearl Jam singer, Eddie Vedder

Snowball didn't like riding to the vet with Maurice because he was a real Eddie Vetter.

Lord of the Flies
A cat who's trapped a fly between the sliding glass door and screen

Maurice became Lord of the Flies when a wayward fly thought he could escape through the screen door.

Window Shopping
The act of cats birdwatching through a window

While spending an entire afternoon window shopping, Snowball spotted the cutest little red number.

Sticker Shock
A cat's panic, realizing a sticker is stuck to his paw

Maurice experienced intense sticker shock when he walked across The Lady's return address labels.

Walking Papers
Any sort of paper (wrapping, news, copy) on top of which a cat feels he must walk

The Lady began wrapping birthday presents, therefore presenting Mittens with his walking papers.
