catfight ‎(plural catfights)

  1. A fight between cats.
    The caterwauling from the catfight in the back yard was awful; I couldn't get to sleep until it was over.
  2. (slang) An acrimonious fighting or bickering between women; so named because, like cats, scratching is a common defensive tactic among women, as opposed to a fistfight between men.
