    Default Re: English idioms

    Cat got your tongue?
    (Meaning: "Why aren't you talking? Your silence is suspicious.")

    Look what the cat dragged in.
    (Meaning: something that looks ragged or discheveled, much like a mouse that a cat has caught and partially eaten)

    When the cat's away, the mice will play.
    (Meaning: If no one is watching, people will misbehave.)

    Let the cat out of the bag.
    (Meaning: to tell a secret)
