 for Caddies
From The Collaborative International Dictionary of English v.0.48 :

  Caddy \Cad"dy\, n.; pl. Caddies. [Earlier spelt catty, fr.
     Malay kat[imac] a weight of 11/3 pounds. Cf. Catty.]
     1. A small box, can, or chest to keep tea in, also called
        tea caddy.
        [1913 Webster]
  
     2. a container to hold objects when not in use.
        [PJC]
  
     3. (Computers) a container to hold a compact disk, used in
        some types of compact disk devices, which is inserted into
        the CD player during playing, or in the case of recordable
        CD-ROMS, during recording. It is approximately square and
        thin, slightly larger than the compact disk. However, many
        CD players have a drawer for the compact disk, requiring
        no caddy.
