The spelling of Kaatskill Life is derived from the Dutch. “Kaats” meaning cats, “kill” (“or kil,kyl”) meaning creeks or streams. When the area was first settled by the Dutch, late 17th early 18th centuries, they encountered many mountain lions and bobcats, (“Kaats”) as well as an abundance of streams and creeks (“kyl,kil”) “kil” was later changed to “kill” and “kaats” to Cats. Many waterways in the region still retain “kill” in their names, such as, Wallkill, Catskill, Kauterskill, Westkill, Cobleskill.
