Huh, this review just made me look up the origins of the term "moggie" and I didn't realise it came from the name Margaret (so via "Maggie" presumably). In Britain at least "moggie"/"moggy" just means 'non pedigree cat' and isn't sex specific.

This sounds like a fun manga, I'll have to try and check it out! Love anything to do with cats :3

Mii, the one female cat in the story thus far, is usually referred to as a “molly,” a term some readers may not be familiar with.


Pun on "moll," the gang term?

^ I feel like you just hit the nail on the head and that I completely overthought the issue. (Although I still think they were also actively avoiding "pussycat.")

I might give this a try. It does make me wish that the delinquent-cat manga from Asuka were localized too.
