cat update and a few proverbs

Thank you so much for the good thoughts about my old cat. She's doing pretty well and we hope it's merely Irritable Bowel Syndrome.

But it's a new week and let's have a few more old proverbs about cats (from a book we've seen before, A Complete Collection of English Proverbs) . . .

- To love it as a cat loves mustard. (That is, not at all!)
- Knit my dog a pair of breeches and my cat a cod-piece. (The book doesn't explain this one.)
- When the weasel and the cat make a marriage it is an ill presage. (Hebrew; meaning that when two evil enemies make alliance, it bodes no good for the innocent.)
- A foot like a cat, a tail like a rat. (Two attributes of a fine greyhound.)
- A half-penny cat may look to a king. (A variant on the saying we all know.)
- Before the cat can lick her ear. (Very quickly.)

Haven't looked at Twitter for a few days and hadn't heard about your cat. Hoping the worst is past now...

Hope your cat is better, curator! I hate it when fellow felines are ill!
