Cat Facts #1. Ailurophile

Do you adore all things feline? So do we.

But why adopt the crazy cat lady label when we can call ourselves ailurophiles? This fancy schmancy term comes from the Greek ailouros for ‘cat’ and -phile for ‘love’ – translating to cat lover.

Oh, and that’s pronounced “eye-LOOR–uh-fyle.”

How do you use it in a sentence? Well, here’s a quote that also serves as an example sentence(s):

“It’s said in publishing that no cat book ever loses money. Maybe it’s true: bibliophiles tend to be ailurophiles, and both are tenacious breeds.” Toth, Emily, Meow mix, Women’s Review of Books, 1 Jul 1995.
