Isn’t it odd how humans use a lot of Cat related expressions to describe how they feel and their surroundings. There is the extremely distasteful expression that the area, room etc., is “not big enough to swing a Cat around in!” As if anyone would want to swing a Cat?
Mind you having said that there have been quite a few really awful people exposed this year by my good self and other areas of the media – the dreadful cow who dropped a Cat in a wheelie bin comes to mind and that terribly ugly woman who drowned some poor defenceless Kittens. I just hope that these people were the few and that their actions are the actions a very small minority of humans and that they have a really awful Christmas and the worst New Year don’t you?
You have to hope that they suffer in other ways because the punishment that these dreadful women have received has been balloon-like in it light handedness.
The Cat related expression which triggered this little ‘blogette’ (another made up word of mine meaning ‘small blog’) was “has the Cat got your tongue?”
It’s such a dreadful expression isn’t it when you think about it, and I know that because I have thought about it a lot recently and before that when I was writing my bestselling masterpiece of feline literature “Getting Out Excerpts from a Cat’s Diary” which I feel duty bound to say is available here Amazon.com well one has to pay for the lifestyle one has become accustomed too and of course keep one’s book at the very top of the bestsellers list doesn’t one? Well this one does!
So back to the expression “has the Cat got your tongue?” What was the person thinking when they asked that question originally and almost as importantly who asked the question in the first place? Who knows the person who first said has the cat etc., is long gone and forgotten happily or he would be Dogged by Cats if you see what I mean!
But what does it mean when someone asks “has the Cat got your tongue?” Well they just they want to know why you are not speaking when they think you should! Isn’t nosiness annoying? It’s not only nosey but it spawns dreadful expressions too!
So here to prove that Cats don’t need your tongue because they almost always have a more than satisfactory and generally superior one themselves thank you is a picture of my friend Burt the Black and White Cat taking a moment to enjoy his tongue – ‘nicely!’
I hope you appreciate and like Burt’s whiskers too – he does!
