Awww cute little kitty...CUTE...isn't the arabic work for cat a Gatwa?
UmmKhaled: Nope, lol. Maybe emirati gatwa, Omani Senora, Saudi Bisa,but Arabic is kitta.
It's interesting to see the different words used in the Middle East! Very cool!
in jordan they say bise (bis-eh), in egypt utta (ut-ta)more words to add to your vocabulary ;)
ahh what a coincidence, I just asked my fiance this morning how they say Cat in Oman hehhehe
that's very interesting! : )
HiI want to add something her.Many people they don’t know “even Omani themselves”, The word “sannoorah” is very old Arabic word which mean cat. But because only Omani people use it, people thought this Omani word! Myself, I checked in one of Arabic dictionary, the word “Sanoorah” is stated in this dictionary and its mean the male cat.But Omani people use it for both mal as “sannoor” and female as “sannoorah”.And I said because this phrase used only by Omani people, people thought it’s Omani Phrase not origin Arabic.
It is fus'ha! It's used in al-Jahiz's Kitab al-Hayawan, if that's of interest to anyone.
