Definition of cathos:

  1. The distinguishing characteristic or element defining a feline. “Being long-furred, small and cuddly is Quinn’s cathos. Without those, he’s just another cat.”
  2. An element in experience evoking a cat-like reaction. “Everyone was awed by the beautiful bird, but Michael’s reaction was almost cathos in intensity.”
  3. Reason in a cat-dominated household that is the controlling principle. “Michael’s cathos includes keeping the cupboards well stocked with cat food, and the cats happily fed.”
