A cat lover.
- Get any two ailurophiles together and the discussion will inevitably turn to litter boxes and litter.
- If the outdoors is too dangerous, ailurophiles often forgo feline companionship rather than confine a cat indoors.
- Among other notable ailurophiles were Byron, Anatole France, Montaigne and Lope de Vega, known as the Spanish Shakespeare.
1930s: from Greek ailuros 'cat' + -phile.
