sionnach commented on the word catmalison
A cupboard in or near the ceiling (therefore assumed to be a "curse for cats" because it's hard for them to get into, whence the etymology)

trivet commented on the word catmalison
Huh. One of my cats' favorite places to lurk is in the 6 inches between the top of the kitchen cupboards and the ceiling.
Trivet: Maybe in your kitchen that space would be termed a catbenison.
Since they're fans of all things precarious and impracticable, yeah.
