Even though Tom was a bit turned on when Alley started licking herself and purring, he joined in on the planning for an intervention.

Pronunciation: kôn-fôn-āb'yə-lā'shən

Sentence: Most often, the conversations between Cindy and her overweight but handsome cat, Nigel, were rather one-sided.

Pronunciation: doc/ter/doo/lit'/ler

Sentence: Dr. John, the local veterinarian, had an uncanny ability to communicate with all animals, except goldfish. Hopefully, what with having purchased "The Idiot's Guide to Goldfish", he'd soon be fluent. Dr. John didn't know quite as many animal languages as that guy in Puddleby-on-the-Marsh, or even as many farm dialects as that Dr. Herriot in Yorkshire, but he felt he had a pretty good grip overall. Perhaps he too would one day be known as a regular DrDoolittler.

Etymology: Dr. Doolittle: in children's stories, a doctor who shuns human patients in favor of animals + -er: suffix meaning "one who..."
