Im new here! Have been browsing the questions and love it! So, decided to post one... I recently heard the expression 'can't make a cat noise, but someone please get a saucer of milk' never heard this before. Can someone help to clarify what the meaning if it please? I think it could mean something like 'who does one think he/she is fooling?' but not sure...
In BrE, we sometimes say "Miaow, get her another saucer of milk" when someone has said something rather mean, bitchy, sarcastic or (as we appropriately call it) catty. It's a reference to the person who spoke first being considered "catty" and the fact that pet cats drink milk from saucers.

Thank you for the reply. Apologies for the code as title. The captcha validation code was picked up in the title line for some reason, then I tried to edit and couldn't do it !! sorted now...
