In honor of our Iran Traveler guest Mandy Tay and her favorite Persian word, I present you with our word of the day:
پیشی / pishi / kitty cat
Gorbeh is cat, but pishi is more like kitty cat because of the way Iranians call cats. The same way that in English we say "here kitty, kitty, kitty" in Persian, we say "pishi, pishi, pishi."
It's also a popular name for cats. If you are Iranian and have or have had a cat, chances are it was named Pishi. I myself am guilty of this.
