“cat joining in”

This term is often a friendly reference to someone joining in an activity, despite not really being a full-fledged member of the group.

For example, if older children are playing a real game of basketball and a toddler of six years old is allowed to pretend to be a part of it, then the young one is referred to as a saling-pusa or salimpusa.
