Assunto:  To clump up.
 
Mensagem:  Caca.  They all mean caca.

Meadow muffin and cowpie are quite common expressions in the country.  Both refer to what cattle leave behind as evidence they have been there before you.  Don't step in them!

"Droppings" is a polite term.  It seems to be used mostly with birds.  (I found bird droppings on the car this mornings.)  I'm sure I've heard it used to refer to dogs too.  "Manure" is used for horses and cattle.  "Pellets" is used for rabbits.  "Doodoo" could refer to dogs, cats, or even babies.  The same goes for "poo".  (The baby poopooed his diaper.  Don't step on the poopoo.)
