Pet Idioms: We've All Heard Them, But What Do They Mean?
There are so many expressions involving dogs and cats - I think we've all heard them. Most people use these expressions all they time but don't know their origin (including me). So I asked one of our wonderful PetPlace writers to research these pet idioms and find out what they mean.
For example: "The cat's pajamas"
"The cat's meow"
"A dog's breakfast"
"A dog's dinner"
"Barking up the wrong tree"
"Dog days of summer"
"It's raining cats and dogs"
What do these sayings really mean? Find out. Go to: Furry Wisdom: The Meanings of Animal Idioms.
I found the history behind their meanings quite interesting, especially it's raining cats and dogs and barking up the wrong tree.
I hope you enjoy this. You may even win a great prize if you are asked one of these questions some day in a trivia game!
