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.
- "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"
- "Three-dog night"
- "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!
