I heard the other morning on the news. This guy used the phrase Cat's pajamas. What tha? I've never seen a cat with pajamas on. I could see Zach in a Hugh Hefner type smoking jacket and Zoe in those pajamas with the little feet on them but they don't have any. This bothered me all day, I wondered why don't dog's have pj's.
I asked Mom as soon as she walked in the door that afternoon. I needed answers! Mom explained it's a saying were people know your talking about something that's the best. Like "Her pecan pie is the cat's pajamas." She asked me if I understood, I said I think so. Zach's was on the table, just a rolling at me saying "see the smoke coming out of her ears!" Then when Mom left the room, Zach looked down at me and told me "I told you that dog's are inferior to us cat's, our phrases are good and dog phrases are bad things." I left the room.
Why can't there be a dog's pajamas or dog's bark? So, this is what I came up with:
Dog's pajamas: the best activity ever
Example: Grandma and Grandpa came over today. Tux and I played in the back yard for what seemed like forever. It was the dog's pajamas! Or
When I was running in the baseball field today and this gorgeous Great Dane walked by and said "That looks like the dog's pajamas." I thought he looks like the dog's bark to me.
Since I would be annoyed if the humans tried to dress me in pajamas, and I have yet to meet a cat that wanted to get dressed, I think it is something the humans say that shows something is good, but they are being funny too. I know I would think it was funny and good to see a cat dressed in pajamas.
