Animal Idioms in English


Recommended Posts

I dedicate these idioms to my cat, John:

1] My brother and his ex-wife has a nasty cat-and-dog life.

2] My useless brother always try to put the cat among the pigeons.

3] I better wait and see which way the cat jumps before changing my goals.

4] It was raining pitchforks and hammer handles yesterday.

^_^ Meow!

I have quite a common idiom, which has been brought in animal form.

"The cat kicked the bucket".

I think the above is an effective idiom since if you kicked the bucket you would feel pain and it reflects that idea to death so the "cat passed away" (which is the real meaning of that idiom).
