Comments: VEWT 66, EDT 295-296, ЭСТЯ 2, 128-129, TMN 2, 382, Лексика 168. All IE sources (EDT 295, TMN 2, 382-383), like Pers. būzīna, proposed for this word are quite unclear etymologically and probably borrowed themselves. {Cf. also some modern words meaning 'cat': MKypch., Khor. mačɨ, Uzb. maši, Tat. mäči, see Лексика 192, perhaps borrowed from Turk. into Slovak and Hungarian.}
