  cat \cat\ (k[a^]t), n. [AS. cat; akin to D. & Dan. kat, Sw.
     katt, Icel. k["o]ttr, G. katze, kater, Ir. cat, W. cath,
     Armor. kaz, LL. catus, Bisc. catua, NGr. ga`ta, ga`tos, Russ.
     & Pol. kot, Turk. kedi, Ar. qitt; of unknown origin. Cf.
     Kitten.]
     1. (Zool.) Any animal belonging to the natural family
        Felidae, and in particular to the various species of the
        genera Felis, Panthera, and Lynx. The domestic cat
        is Felis domestica. The European wild cat ({Felis
        catus) is much larger than the domestic cat. In the
        United States the name wild cat is commonly applied to
        the bay lynx ({Lynx rufus). The larger felines, such as
        the lion, tiger, leopard, and cougar, are often referred
        to as cats, and sometimes as big cats. See Wild cat, and
        Tiger cat.
        [1913 Webster +PJC]
  
     Note: The domestic cat includes many varieties named from
           their place of origin or from some peculiarity; as, the
           Angora cat; the Maltese cat; the Manx cat; the
           Siamese cat.
           [1913 Webster]
  
                 Laying aside their often rancorous debate over
                 how best to preserve the Florida panther, state
                 and federal wildlife officials,
                 environmentalists, and independent scientists
                 endorsed the proposal, and in 1995 the eight cats
                 [female Texas cougars] were brought from Texas
                 and released. . . .
                 Uprooted from the arid hills of West Texas, three
                 of the imports have died, but the remaining five
                 adapted to swamp life and have each given birth
                 to at least one litter of kittens. --Mark Derr
                                                    (N. Y. Times,
                                                    Nov. 2, 1999,

           [PJC]
  
     Note: The word cat is also used to designate other animals,
           from some fancied resemblance; as, civet cat, fisher
           cat, catbird, catfish shark, sea cat.

Din dicționarul Jargon File (4.3.1, 29 Jun 2001) :

  {Unix">cat [from `catenate' via {Unix `cat(1)'] vt. 1. [techspeak] To spew
     an entire file to the screen or some other output sink without pause
     (syn. blast). 2. By extension, to dump large amounts of data at an
     unprepared target or with no intention of browsing it carefully. Usage:
     considered silly. Rare outside Unix sites. See also dd, BLT.
  
     Among Unix fans, `cat(1)' is considered an excellent example of
     user-interface design, because it delivers the file contents without
     such verbosity as spacing or headers between the files, and because it
     does not require the files to consist of lines of text, but works with
     any sort of data.
  
     Among Unix haters, `cat(1)' is considered the canonical example of
     _bad_ user-interface design, because of its woefully unobvious name. It
     is far more often used to blast a file to standard output than to
     concatenate two files. The name `cat' for the former operation is just
     as unintuitive as, say, LISP's cdr.
  
     Of such oppositions are holy wars made.... See also UUOC.
