Mine is very good in that case. Invest in a Right Coast Dictionary like
"Webster's New World College" and you will find numerous definitions to
fit all sorts of usage. Not only does it have "cat" as in felidae, or
"felis cattus", (you know, those that meow, roar, or purr), but
definition #8 is: "Caterpillar (tractor).
And of course to make it relevant to the DJML it even has #9(a) Slang ,
a jazz musician or enthusiast.
Cheers, cats ;-)
