Why are vaginas associated with cats?

i've noticed that in a lot of languages, they use a word that means cat if they informally talk about vagina. for example "pussy" or "kitty" in English is used for cats and vaginas or "muschi" in german is also used for cats and vaginas or neko in japanese litterally means cat but can also mean vagina.

why do you think that is?

  • A good question. It's the same in French. I wonder how much of that carries into other parts of the world- Japan would seem to qualify, but does that predate WW2 and the heavy US involvement in Japanese reconstruction?

    • no idea. it might just be a western theme.

  • Not sure. I was about to say this stuff probably is about European languages in general until I see the Japanese part of the issue. For example in Turkish, cats aren’t associated with vaginas. “Cat” means “kedi” in Turkish and ”vagina” means “vajina”, or “am” in an informal way. I’m gonna research about it for you - wait for reply of me

    • so there's no connection between cat and vagina or women in turkish informal language?

    • There’s no, in Turkish, cats are only associated with cats. There are some idioms relating to cat but it’s not about vagina or women at all. For example, “falling on all fours like a cat“ . It means “surviving the most difficult situations without any harm.”

  • I’ve tried to find out also already more than 12 years, never found.

  • I guess it’s the same reason beaver is associated with it, because of the short furry hair that is naturally around the vagina

    • That's very particular to English language tho. I did not see that use anywhere else.

    • I guess it’s one of those universal words

    • it isn't universal though, if it just happens in one language. the thing with the cats does not happen in "every" language either as one turkish girl in here already confired. so there must be some wesstern culture thing to the cats. the beaver as far as i know only an English thing xD
