Annals of catymology, #2


Catymology: Examples
catymology (science)

The origin and historical development of a catted (or catalyzed) form as shown by determining its basic elements, earliest known use, and changes in form and meaning, tracing its transmission from one language to another, identifying its cognates in other languages, and reconstructing its ancestral form where possible.

catymology (religion)
A philosophy or cult whose followers invoke the principles of catymology in order to claim the deity of individual, or in some cases all, cats. Verb: catymologize. To convert to catymology. “In his efforts to achieve cult status, Aloysius catymologized over five hundred humans.”

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
concatenate
To connect or link in a series or chain. “Many felines enjoy concatenating mouse heads.”

------------------------------------------------------------------------
catalyze
To produce fundamental change in; transform. “By persistently depositing fur upon the black couch, I catalyzed it.”

------------------------------------------------------------------------
catted
1. Literally, to be sat upon or otherwise occupied by a cat or cats. 2. Colloquially, to have been catalyzed. (See also: The Catted Rule.)

------------------------------------------------------------------------
catalepsy
A condition characterized by lack of response to external stimuli and by muscular rigidity, so that the limbs remain in whatever position they are placed. It is known to be induced by being catted.

the catted rule
