Easily remember the character for cat in Chinese

A great way to remember easily the character for cat in Mandarin is to make up a little story about it. How about this one?

The Chinese character for cat is composed of everything a cat needs:

  • on the left, you see the animal, with its eyes, legs and tail symbolized (more visible in its traditional form ),
  • then on the right-hand side of the character, there's grass to feed the cat ()
  • and a field for it to run in ()

Meowsome, don't you think?
