Marky's New BuddyTrick brain teasers appear difficult at first, but they have a trick that makes them really easy.
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?
HintOz is a nickname for Australia.
AnswerI have named my new cat Munchkin, and he is a Munchkin!
Munchkins are a breed of cat with very short legs, who are known for being dog-like and loyal. As for the Australia reference, The Wizard of Oz has Munchkins in it!
