My mom grew up speaking only Polish until grade school and she passed plenty of words on to me and my brother while we were growing up. One of those words was “KOCIĘ.” To me, the word sounds like cwoo-tee (with a short “oo” sound like in book), although I am by no means an expert in the Polish language.

When my brother and I were sent to do our chores, one of our tasks was cleaning the KOCIĘ from the corners and under the furniture. It wasn’t until some years later that I learned that KOCIĘ means “kitten” in English.
