    Кис, кис... in English

    How do you usually call up a cat? I mean how do you spell it?
    Send me a PM if you need me.

    Ramil, if I got you right, that cat was psy-mutated, and therefore I suggest a character would call for the cat: "Psssy.. psssy.."

    Looking at the subject, I thought you were asking about the song (or a novel) called "Kiss Kiss" ...

    A dry cat food brand is being sold at local stores, named “Cat Chow” in English. I guess this is it.

    We either use "puss, puss" (not pronounced as the yellow stuff that comes out of wounds but with an "u" as in pussicat).

    Or I also say pussikins come here!
