Cute cat caterwauls

Okay, I just had to do it. There are so many fabulous words that start with “cat” and it was just too perfect for a C day.
So I bet you are wondering about catopric?
relating to a mirror, a reflector, or reflection.
Now Merriam-Webster defines it a little more narrowly
ca·top·tric | \ kə-ˈtäp-trik \
being or using a mirror to focus light
Wikipedia gave me another new word in explaining catoptric
Catoptrics (from Greek: κατοπτρικός katoptrikós, “specular”, from Greek: κάτοπτρον katoptron “mirror”) deals with the phenomena of reflected light and image-forming optical systems using mirrors. A catoptric system is also called a catopter (catoptre).
Challenges & linkups:
Day 3 of the A to Z challenge. If you want to sign up, you can until the 6th. The signup list is here.
If you want to see other participants, the master list is here.
They give you a survivor badge if you can tough it out for all the letters. I think I might have tried doing this last year but didn’t make it past the first week. I have a vague recollection of that but for some reason am thinking autumn instead of spring. Oh well. Maybe this year I will get that survivor badge.
If you do the A to Z challenge, let me know and I’ll visit you. It is a bit heavy on author/writing blogs so you’d be in good company.
You can use the Amazon search bar to do any search at Amazon like I did with “authors cats twain”. In case you didn’t know it, Mark Twain loved cats.
