You may have heard about my Sphynx cat Marky. Marky is incredibly sweet, but he does nothing but sleep! I decided to get him a more energetic companion.

My friend Polly asked me what I was going to name the cat. Now, I am a great puzzle enthusiast, and so I sent her a cryptic clue in an email.

"I feature in what sounds like Australia,
But that is a typical error,
I could be an insult, or an endearment
Or a cat to stay with you forever.
I'm a little squat, it may seem,
But I'll stay loyal forever
And here's one thing you may find strange;
My name and breed are the same, to a letter!"

What is my new cat's name, and a bonus question: What is his breed?





What Next?

scullyx10, check the hint. It explains the connection between Australia and Oz. I didnt get this one. I liked it, but I think it should be in Riddle rather than Trick.

I agree - this is in the wrong category. Trivia, perhaps, or I could agree with the folks who said "Riddle" - but not "Trick."
Cute - and even informative-though.

I did put in a correction to make it a 'Riddle' but it hasn't done it yet...

It's a Riddia teaser--a cross between Riddle and Trivia.
