    I have been brought up to believe that a MOGGY is a CAT.

    However, in some parts of the country, (some not too far from me) a moggy is a MOUSE!!!!:shock: :shock: :shock: No way !



    So what is it??

    A cat or a mouse?
    :-? or even something else..........

    It's a cat! No way is it a mouse, that's just wrong. According to the Oxford concise dictionary mog and moggie is a cat, and the Cassell concise dictionary says moggy is a cat too.

    And yes, I realise I should get out more!

    That reminds me of a really, really bad joke . . .

    What's the difference between a Weasel and a Stoat?

    It's weasely seen cause they're stoatly different.

    >coat<

    Anyway, in this part of the world a MOGGY is a cat or a Morris Minor.

    That's almost as bad as this one:

    Q: "What's the difference between a buffalo and a bison?"

    A: "A bison's what you wash your fi(a)ce in :shock: "

    I loved Mog...I may go and hunt them out and do a book review on them for uni.
    Mog is a cat in my eyes at least.

    Awww mog books! I remember them!!!!

    Anyway... It's a cat! How can it be a mouse.. it doesn't have the same feel to it!

    You'd go "here Moggy Moggy" to a cat.. but not a mouse.. and plus... it sounds like a cat ...:rolleyes:

    I've heard moggy used to refer to both a cat and mouse. It's probably applied to both by association.

    However, my mum (bless) uses moggy to refer to anything that flies, jumps and/or bites and which is of the insect persuasion.

    It's a shame to wake her up sometimes. :)

    She used to constantly warn my sisters about getting moggies in their hair - it meant she'd have to get the derbac and steel comb out :eek:uch:

    Possibly also applied to mosquitos as a corruption of the word - (Italian) Mosche.
