Klinefelter is actually a syndrome. You’ve heard of it before, but maybe not by that name. I actually stumbled across the term this week by accident. So what does it mean? It’s the term for a male cat that happens to have calico or tortoiseshell markings.
Have you heard of a Caliby or a Torbico? These are names for calicos or torties with tabby markings. Then there’s the calamanco (a tortie) or the clouded tiger (another name for calico).
Here’s another cat-related name I’ve never heard of—Grimalkin. It’s a term for an old female cat.
I think you know that in Britain, a cat is affectionately called a Mogie. That is a cat of no particular breed.
Here’s a fun website listing cat term puns—you know like those I use in my book titles—like Pawful, Purrfect, Clawful, pawsome, meowmoirs.
