The left-hand radical is the MUTANT RADICAL for cat- it looks like a cat's paw with claws extended.
So you can say:
The cat is out playing with flowers in the rice field.
the little cat in all the shop windows. It's kind of a weird phenomenon if you think about it: One paw is up, beckoning customers to come in, like "Come on in, guy! I like your style!" But the other paw clutches a gold coin, usually marked 10,000,000 yen. Like "OK, J/K about valuing you. I just want your money."
no hot food for me!
someone who doesn't like hot (like oven-hot, not spicy) food.
The cat has a CLAW. You draw with your HAND.
