    a'ight so me and @birb doggo have had a bit of a disagreement war over which is better: nekos or cats?


    i decided to ask your opinions. i'm personally on team neko. doggo is on team cat.

    note: cat mostly refers to real cats.
    note2: apparently neko literally means cat so neko refers to cat-eared people.
    note3: i remembered nekojins are what im talking about (i think?) so yeah
    note4 (dang im adding a lot of notes): ok i keep getting definitions and facts thrown at me but as far as i know "neko" can be a common shortening of whatever word you're talking about and im also a lazy bean so please avoid continuing to throw definitions and japanese words at me.

    Neko is the Japanese word for cat. That is it.

    nekomimi is the Japanese term for cat girl.

    Basically all you are asking which word is preferred for cat. The Japanese one or the English one.

    The answer is kittens.

    Considering cats are real and I can hold and love them and nekomimi are fictional my vote goes to cats.
    Plus cats have cute toe beans. <33

    Nekomimi means cat eared. Soooooo... while it is a term for cat girls it is also the umbrella term for it

    Well considering nekomimi/nekojin/neko, whatever you want to call them, are pretty much just people with cat ears (and a tail sometimes?) I'd have to just go with cats.

    Mainly because petting people is weird. And people are less fluffy.

    And also animals are less judgemental. Although I guess that's debatable with cats.

    And just to throw out some Japanese words and definitions because you can't tell me what to do I feel like it and I think it would help for anyone reading this, "neko" is cat, "mimi" is ear, so literally cat ear. It doesn't refer to a specific gender. "Jin" refers to a type of person, usually by nationality but in fiction or mythology could refer to a human-like species. So "nekojin" literally would mean "cat person," or would be the name of a species of cat people. I think that would be more along the lines of a cat furry, but could probably refer to a person with cat ears/tail too. In casual speech it's not uncommon to shorten names for things, so using "neko" to refer to either of those is pretty typical, I think.
