What is a group of cats called?

April 10, 2016

A group of cats is referred to as a "clowder" or a "clutter" and also a "glaring",


If you want to refer to a group of wild cats, the correct terms are ‘dowt’ and ‘destruction’.  

A male cat, when neutered, is called a “gib”, when not, is called a “tom” or a "tomcat"  An unaltered female is called a "queen" or a "molly" and a juvenile cat is referred to as a "kitten". 


The word “cat” itself derives from the Old English “catt”.  Catt has its source in the Late Latin “catus”, meaning: “domestic cat”.  This Late Latin word probably derives from an Afro-Asiatic word: “kaddîska”, meaning “wild cat”.
