Guide :: "Cat-speak" Dictionary

Post by Willowstorm on Tue Apr 11, 2017 6:27 pm

This is a list of the currently accepted terminology of our Warrior cats; credit to the Warrior Cats Wiki.

General Terminology:
Carrionplace - A Twoleg dump.
Crowfood – A dead prey animal that has begun to rot; can also be used as an insult. Also known as buzzardfood, or chickfeed.
Cutter – A veterinarian, often referred to as one that spays or neuters cats, but this is not always the case.
DarkClan - the afterlife for bad Clan cats. SoulClan visitors can visit here too, though it doesn't often happen.
Dirt ('Making Dirt') - Feces, defecating.
Fresh-kill – A recently killed prey animal caught for the purpose of consumption. Also known as "caught-prey". Elders, kits, queens, and sick cats eat first, then warriors and apprentices. Extras stay in the fresh-kill pile, and stores can be built, but typically only using 'forest' prey, as fish does not keep well.
Gathering – The monthly meeting of all the Clans when the moon is full, at the Gathering Island. There is a truce on this night, and no fighting is allowed.
Greenleaf Twolegplace – A place frequented by Twolegs during summer, such as a resort or camping spot near the lake. There are a few dotted about our Clans' territories.
Halfbridge – A boat dock.
Horseplace – A place where horses are kept, such as ranches and stables.
Hunting Patrol – A group of cats hunting for fresh-kill to bring back for their Clan to eat. May fight if there are trespassers.
Kittypet/Housecat – A domesticated pet cat.
Loner – A cat that lives by itself and doesn't defend its territory.
Monster – A vehicle operated by humans; cars, trucks, buses, the like. Boats referred to as "water-monsters". 
Mooncave - the area where our cats go to share tongues with SoulClan. Located between FrostClan and DuskClan territory.
Rogue – A usually hostile cat who does not have a permanent home, roams around, and does not care about crossing Clan boundaries.
Sharing tongues – Cats grooming each other while sharing the latest gossip. A cat lies on the ground, talking, while the other grooms their fur, listening. Also known as "giving of close comfort."
She-cat - A female cat.
She-kit - A female kit.
Silver boulder - A boulder that, when the silver disc is pulled off, holds Twoleg rubbish. A rubbish bin/trash can.
Silverpelt – The large swath of stars in the sky (believed to be the Milky Way). These stars are a direct representation of SoulClan.
Silverthorn - Barbed wire.
Smooth boulder-thing - Twoleg ball.
Snowmelt - A term used to describe slush or dirty, melted snow.
Soft boulder - A pillow or cushion.
SoulClan - where good Clan cats go when they die; an afterlife. Medicine cats and leaders visit here when they 'sleep with SoulClan' at the Mooncave. 
Tree-eater – A bulldozer.
Thunderpath – A paved road with an extremely acrid scent that cars often go across. Common in Twolegplaces.
