Did you know that cats are the protagonists of many curious expressions of the Italian language? Let’s find out together.
Number 1: “Essere 4 gatti” (being 4 cats) means being in few people
2nd “Avere una bella gatta da pelare” (Having a nice cat to peel) indicates when we are facing a really difficult situation.
3rd “Qui gatta ci cova” (Here the cat is brooding) means that there is something suspicious in a situation
4th “Essere come cane e gatto” (being like cat and dog) means that 2 people don’t get along and fight often.
