You probably have a cat on hand right now!Soft and cute, that's it!
Today we're going to learn some cat vocabulary and see how much you know!
The word "xī māo", although it literally refers to a cat owner making a strenuous sniff at a cat, the more common usage of the word in practical use is to refer to an extreme fondness for cats, which often leads to such endearment as kissing and cuddling.
"lū māo" is to stroke the body of the cat, let the cat feel happy. Face, head and chin are areas where cats like to be touched, and if people are considerate, cats purr to show satisfaction.
猫奴 【māo nú】
Cat-lovers are collectively referred to as "māo nú". This is probably because, for animals, humans have always felt that they are the highest being. If a person desires to be emotionally equal to or even lower than cats because of their love for them, these "depravites" are said to be "māo nú". In short, "māo nú" is a slave to a cat, the kind who is willing and slavish.
铲屎官 【chǎn shǐ guān】
"chǎn shǐ guān" are a tsundere way of making fun of themselves -- after all, they love cats so much they don't care how smelly their poop is.
云养猫【yún yǎng māo】
"yún yǎng māo" means that a cat owner who cannot keep a cat due to family conditions (e.g., the parents are not allowed, the family is not rich, etc.) or environmental factors will appease his desire to raise a cat by watching websites, forums, or apps to view pictures and videos of cats.
