(pronounced KAH-seht)

We love this old-fashioned sounding verb, which means to pamper or treat and care for and protect in an overindulgent way. The noun form of the word means a pet, especially when referring to a little lamb. Maybe we love this word since there’s almost nothing cuter than a little lamb” We’re suckers for cute.

Example: Jackie was always shocked at how her cranky, hard line, “good ole boy” client would cosset his bulldog, even when the pooch would destroy the occasional piece of fine antique furniture she worked so hard to find for his immaculate executive office.
