Hi, Please remove this thread if it's against the rules. I have always been wondering why do you people call it: "pussy". I don't see any resemblance between a cat and a vagina! Someone explain please. Thanks.

"Pussy" comes from "puss" which is another name for cats. The word is also used to address a woman or weakness. From there it becomes a word for female genitalia. I don't know how such a simple word can go through many uses as it evolves but as you become more familiar with English slang you will notice our vocabulary for human genitalia is endless and many words start out as innocuous and end up becoming a vulgarity.
