The word in my language is "gigil". Not sure what it is in English, so I’ll just call it “squee” :)

    1. "Gigil" sounds more like /gee-gil/ in Filipino but you can also giggle when you feel "gigil" upon seeing an adorable cat.

  8. A rough translation of gigil could be 'super-extreme-cute-aggression' x]

  19. Exactly how we feel and act when we see any cat. Who doesn't melt when they see a kitty?

  22. Looking at the definitions on the link you provided, I would translate 'Squee' to Nanggigigil, but that's just my opinion, and I'm not fluent in Tagalog, so I could be in error, just like you.
