Etymology[edit]

From Proto-Germanic *kattōn. Cognate with Old Frisian katte, Old Saxon katta, Middle Dutch katte (Dutch kat), Old High German kazza (German Katze), Old Norse ketta (Swedish katta). The word existed in the Germanic languages in a masculine gender also, represented in Old English by catt. The word appears to be related to Late Latin cattus as well as to similar words in the Slavic and Celtic languages, but the ultimate source is uncertain.
