Does anyone know how to say 'cat' in Yemeni Arabic? Here it states it is demmeh in Sanʿani Arabic- Yemeni Arabic - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

It sounds very close to the Amharic word for cat, ድመት dïmät/dəmät so I was wondering how broadly this word is used. May it be the word for cat in Hijazi and the other surrounding dialects too?

Thank you.

    Demmah is only used in Sana‘a.Each governorate in Yemen has it‘s own dialect .
