Not Just for Kids

Not Just for cat-herine:
Cat’s Dictionary

Cat got your tongue? Have you ever been caught catnapping? Or made a caterwaul? Or seen a cathedral? Or caught a catfish?

If you thought cats had no job but sleeping away the day, now you’ll see that they’re busy holding together the many words cat are part of.

Here’s some of the words in the cat’s dictionary.

catechism catnap
catty catamaran
cat call
catharsis cattywampus
catbird seat
cattail catalogue
catchy cat’s paw
cathedral catholic catgut cattail
CAT scan
cat food
copy cat
Catherine catapult catwalk
cat burglar
cattle catsup
cater catacomb catalyst cathead
cat-o’-nine tails
catkin catnip

But some cat-words in our list have lost their letters. Fill in the missing letters to finish this sentence from the Cat’s Dictionary.

Can Cath_ _ine catch the cat b_ _ _lar before he steals the cat f_ _d and escapes on his ca_ _ _aran. Oh, c_ _ty cata_ _ _ophe! Or will kitty have to shop by cata_ _ _ue for a catfi_ _ dinner?
