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"
  • "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!
