Dilly queen smallYou have to wonder at the lists of collective nouns that persistently overlook a very ‘obvious’ observation.

I got rid of the old armchair in my study a while back and put two oversized cushions under the radiator for the puddy-tats.

I have seen cats collectively referred to as a:  Clowder, Clutter, Colony,  Comfort, Intrigue, Kindle, Litter and/or Pounce.

But all are wrong. The most obvious  collective noun for our feline overlords has to be…
