Kinda like the names English gives to groups of animals? Pounce of kittens, parliment of owls, dash of cheetahs, etc



Totally going off-topic, but for others like me who love these poetic phrases, they're called "terms of venery", dating back to the late middle ages' hunting tradition [0].

In the list I see "coalition of cheetahs" and "kindle of kittens". But then again, I don't mind new coinages, these are fun.
