Trixie’s Bookshelf: The Dictionary

September 18, 2010 trixiecat

There’s lots of words in the English language named after cats! For example, CATalog, CATapult, CAThedral, CATsup, CATtle, CATcher, and CATerpillar. “Caterpillar” actually comes from a French word that literally meant “hairy cat.” Hmmm…I don’t see the resemblance. I definitely don’t see the resemblance between cats and cattle. You can find dictionaries under the call number 423. Mr. Blinn is telling me there’s one more word to add to the list: CATastrophe. Ha ha. Very funny.
