Unless you've been living under a rock (i.e. not been on Yummypets recently), you might have noticed that the team at Yummypets are an international lot! We may all share a love of animals, but unfortunately, we don't all share the one language (although we're trying).

Fortunately, while we're waiting for automatic integrated translation to become available (which won't be for a while, sorry guys...), we've put together a list of words that come up often when Yummypals get together. So you now might be able to learn and understand something new!

So without any further ado, here is the definitive guide to the most common Yummypets vocabulary:
