HI all 😁 Cheet (cat) is today’s Animals in Scots.
Also known as a cheetie-pussy; an affectionate name is pussy-baudrons. Mew/Miaow is maw, miauve or piteously, waw.
All the Scots words for these posts are taken from The Concise English-Scots Dictionary, by the Scottish National Dictionary Association. The words chosen will be the generally accepted term, but as in all languages there are regional variations, as well as sub-species variations. For example, an owl is generally known as a hoolet in Scots, but an ool in Shetland & the NE. A barn owl is a white hoolet & a long eared owl, a hornnie hoolet.
Hae a guid day 😁
