    Well , if you want precise translation (as in dictionary) here it is -

    PRECIOUS - драгоценный

    HOPE - надежда

    TREASURE - сокровище

    RARITY - oops, sorry I translated 'parity' Редкость

    BIG CAT - большая кошка\ большой кот

    REGAL - королевский

    RARITY - раритет

    REGAL - I think царский or just царь is better

    That what I meant saying 'as in dictionary' . Then REGAL is adjective only, but if we translate those words with tigers in mind then it would be different. - depends on the author what she wants.

    Call one of them Мурзик. Or Вася. Or Муся, if it is a girl.
    BTW, I wonder, what are the most common names for cats in English?

    Helen probably needs transcriptions also. Here's an approximate way to pronounce each of those words (I used ' to indicate which syllable is stressed):

    PRECIOUS - драгоценный - drago'tzenniy

    HOPE - надежда - nad'yezhda ('zh' is like the 's' in 'pleasure')

    TREASURE - сокровище - sa'krovishe (not too sure about this one)

    RARITY - Редкость - 'redkost (try to make the 'e' sound more like 'air' than 'red')

    BIG CAT - большая кошка/ большой кот - bal'shaya 'koshka / bal'shoy kot

    REGAL - королевский - karal'yevskiy

    царский - 'tzarskiy (like the Russian 'Tzar/Czar/Csar')

    Мурзик - Murzik (the 'r' is a little rolled, the 'u' is similar to put, not sure about the stress)

    Вася - 'Vasya (make it an s like 'slip', not like 'phase')

    Муся - Musya - sort of combine the two above I think


    Russian is not an easy language for us Anglophones, Helen

    @Propp: Cat names. Hmm. Not sure. How about Tiddles?

    Always ready with an answer to the highbrow questions:

    To these lists I'd add Chairman Miaow, obviously.
    А если отнять еще одну?
