English certainly does tend to lose hyphens over time. Eg, if you read Dickens or other 19th century authors, you'll see that words like "to-day", "to-morrow", "good-bye", and many others were always hyphenated. I don't think too many people would use hyphens in those words these days - it's just "today", "tomorrow" and "goodbye".

Or is the kitty just making a vulgar suggestion?
That kitty is obviously underaged. That means... Ouch! Dogfood!
