Thread Name: Origins: 'Skin the Cat' and other family sayings
Subject: Origins: Skin the Cat & other sayings
When we were taking off sweaters or t-shirts or other things that went over our heads, my grandmother would say "skin the cat" (which we often pronounced "skinny cat.")

Anybody else familiar with this phrase, or is it just something from my family?

Anybody else have family sayings they wonder about? Please tell us what region you were in when you learned the phrase.
