#6 - 13 Cat-Related Words in German
Since I provided a brief introduction to some German cat-related words in "My Big Adventure" post, I thought I would make a list of handy words for cats to know auf Deutsch (in German). Note that all nouns in German have a gender: masculine, feminine or neuter. The article indicates the gender: der is masculine, das is neuter, die is feminine or plural.
- Cat - die Katze, plural: die Katzen
- Tom (male cat who has not been neutered) - der Kater
- Queen (female cat who has not been spayed) - die Kätzin
- Kitten - das Kätzchen
- Veterinarian - der Tierarzt (for a male vet), die Tierärztin (for a female vet)
- Litterbox - das Katzenklo or die Katzentoilette
- Cat litter - das Katzenstreu or die Katzenstreu
- Cat food - das Katzenfutter
- Scratching post - der Kratzbaum
- Catnip - die Katzenminze
- Cat toy - das Katzenspielzeug
- Wand toy - die Spielangel
- Treats - die Katzensnacks (plural)
das katzenstreu iz in das katzenklo.
die spielangel iz under da bed.

With the instructional list posted by you, Skeezix, and Jeter today, I am becomin' a very SMART kitty. Thanks!
That's great! Thanks for the lesson!
Oh Dragonheart,you know some German words. Isn't it great fun?
I used to speak a lot of german, and dutch, and peu un francais.

Wow, I never knew that I could learn German on a cat blog, this internet is wonderful.
Hahahaha! Excellent, Dragonheart. Now I know how to ask Mom for die Katzensnacks in German.
Viele Grüβe aus Belgrad!

My favorite is the second word for litter box. German is such a fun language! Thanks for sharing with us.
Fanks for the lessin on the most impawtant werds in German!

Jazper, Daphne & Chloe
A great list! I'm always ready to try to learn new words in any language. Thanks for sharing!!
Have a great Thursday !
I'm sure that knowing the German for litter box will be incredibly helpful in my political dealings... or maybe it will just be helpful to know a little German. I'm sure I can turn the conversation to the words I know...
Cool! I really love the last one, fun to say. Happy TT!
It's nice to read some german words...
I'm up too. Please visit my blog and have fun.
I will excercise for comments!
I find it interesting that the german word for cat litter has "toilet" in it. (sp)
My 13 are up.
that is so funny that there is even a word for neutered pets!
My kitty was part of my T13 too.
Very cool.... I don't know any German so thanks for sharing the words :D
A bi-lingo kitty! Wow Dragonheart I is im pressed wif all yur knowledge...yu know two bean languages and of course you knoos kitty!
Kewl! But, how do you know if the cat litter is neuter or female? All I know is it's dirty or clean.
Why call treats anyfing but Temptations??? Ok, Bonnie calls them "NOW!!!"
Mom knows a little Spanish an confirmed French is too hard fur her.
thanks Dragonheart! I'm printing these so I'll remember. How do you say "handsome" like, Dragonheart is a handsome kitty??? My mommy just wants to scoop you up and give you squishy face (she kisses your nose and you scrunch up your face - that is how it works in our house)
I just read your mommy's blog and your family blog. You are all so nice! Your mommy does lotsa running huh? My mommy walks, but running hurts her back so she walks for the cure (cancer walk).
It was fun reading about your family!
Dragonheart, you learn quickly german and now you are teaching it to your cat fellows, lol ! Don't forget that you have not to meow any more but to miau !
Is Ketchup a German word too? It has some of the same letters in it.
Great idea to translate to German. So I simply stole it and translate to another germanic language (forgive me). But which one?

thanx for the new words!!! It's always great to learn a new language! The MTLH only knows one German word and it's a *shh* curse word!!
I was just thinking about you and decided to come back...Do your parents speak to you in German or in English? I'm just a curious meezer...
I wish I knew another language! You're smart like my brother Eliot!

DaisyMae made us laff! our favorite is "die Katzentoilette". that's a really good list. we like learnin' stuff.
You are such a brilliant kitty! I never heard a cat speak German before. Wow! Thanks for sharing all these words. I'm going to practice now...
