The Cat's Out of the Bag

Hello out there in the Bloggosphere,

Have you ever heard the saying "the cat's out of the bag"?

Mum says it comes from old times, when people would sell piglets in bags, called pokes.

The problem with buying a pig in a poke, was that some farmers would put cats in the bags instead, so when you got home with your pig, and let the cat out of the bag you'd find out you'd been tricked.

That's what she says, but cats in bags pretending to be pigs in pokes sounds silly to me.

This is what I think letting the cat out of the bag means.....

Actually, I didn't want to be let out of the bag.  Mum says the bags need to be thrown out now we're finished unpacking from our move.  But I think they make great cubby houses.

I was so annoyed at having my game interrupted, I had to have a swipe at Mr Woof.

You may have noticed.

So that's how you let the cat out of the bag, but don't do it if he doesn't want you to. Or the dog gets it.

Until next time we meet in the bloggosphere,
I remain,

Mr Bumpy,
Supreme Feline Overlord,
Feline Pawty Prime Minispurrial Candidate.
