My cat is very photogenic. Has been since she was a wee kitten in Meknes:
Have I mentioned that my cat is Moroccan? When I found her she was so small, and I had another, very large cat, so I just started calling this one “Little Cat”. Eventually, that became “L.C.” (and only sometime after that did I hear about Lauren Conrad, the girl on the reality show Laguna Beach (now The Hills). I also call her “kteta” (k-tay-ta), which sounds like a cute nickname but which really just means “female cat.”
She does prefer Arabic to English though, and if I tell her to “scutz” she knows what to do. If I affectionately call her “habiba,” she comes running and if I find her scratching the furniture and sternly call out “baraka” she stops in her tracks (okay, that last one’s a total lie).
And she also regrets that there’s no Lolcats in Arabic. So she made her own:

Why “Little Cat”? Why not “mshisha”? It sounds better than “qteta”, doesn’t it?
I don’t know, L.C. just kind of stuck! I actually prefer “kteta” to “mshisha” (probably because the latter is more difficult to pronounce quickly, when you’re calling her!)
But has your qtita gotten the Green Card? Will it be granted American nationality?
I meant American citizenship . It’s Ramadan, you know.
