Cat Fort Vs. Sounder of Piglets

A “sounder” of piglets assaulting the cat fort.

I’ve always been fascinated by the names we have for various groups such as, “murder” of crows, “prickle” of porcupines, etc.  I found this site which has more collective nouns than I knew existed.

The boys made a play area for the kittens by placing green tree leaves in a tray outside of the fort.  The piglets devoured the leaves, but failed to breach the blanketed interior of the fort.

    So, how traumatized are the kittens??!! Did anyone try to huff and puff and blow the walls down?

  2. I’ve always liked collective nouns too. They seem both frivolous and superfluous and excessively specific at the same time.
