The Chatoyant link-up ends tonight at 11:59PST. Did you ponder Shelton’s suggestions and write about names, did you weave some of your most beautiful words into a piece of non-fiction? Maybe a fictional account of a cat? How were you inspired?
According to Dr. Beard, two of the most beautiful words in the English language are chatoyant (like a cat’s eye) and ailurophile (a cat lover). T.S. Eliot, in his wonderful Old Possum’s Book of Practical Cats, used another of Dr. Beard’s favorite words, ineffable, to describe the secret name of a cat.
