Why does cait sound like ‘quit’?

It is an accepted pronunciation in Cois Fharraige.

Yeah, they probably mean big cats like lions or tigers, but I love the idea of a bunch of house cats on display at a zoo!

This reminds me of this one zoo I went to as a kid that had rather mundane things like possums and deer, (both of which are a million times more common just outside their doors.) and then, as if lured into a false sense of security, the next animal I came upon was a freaking Siberian Tiger!!!

there are some house cats at the Portland (Oregon) Zoo. They are kept in a sort of house with a screened in porch. I think it's really sort of an idea to keep your house cat indoors.

Not in words that originate in Irish, no. However, seeing one of the "missing" letters is pretty much always a sign that the word is a loan word that came from another language.

reminds me of when I was five and the cat disappeared. My mom told me my dad gave the cat to the Zoo,
