Macska (much-ka) is a very common word in our house now, at least since October last year. When we were trying to figure out a name for our black kitten, little Miss Luna (whom we thought was a boy at the time) we almost considered just naming her Macska, because it’s Hungarian for ‘cat’. I know, it seems lazy, but we really could not decide on a name at the time.
Now, since she has a proper name (as does Theo, the gorgeous orange kitten) when we’re calling for the cats to come out from their sleeping areas we just yell out ‘macskas’ as we enter the house. We love calling them by that word since we’re Hungarian from my mom’s father’s side and used to listen to him and his brother speak Hungarian to each other.
So now ‘macska’ (much-ka) is the third word I know in Hungarian, and now you know it too.
Happy Easter everyone!
