Curiosity killed the cat - He's a bit of a fat cat, he drives around in a fancy car. - Oh my goodness, you look like something the cat dragged in. - She let the cat out of the bag. - You are very quiet, has the cat got your tongue? - A cat in gloves catches no mice. Are you familiar with these expressions? Do you have similar and /or original ones related to cats in your own mother tongue?

Yes we are used to tell the same expression when someone ( especially children) are very quiet. :” il gatto ti ha mangiato la lingua?”. We have got another with cat aa a subject “: quando il gatto non c’è i topi ballano” ( when the cat is away the mice dancing).
