• In researching the origins of the phrase "It's the cat's meow", it seems that the Roaring '20's ushered in several new phrases related to cats that are still in use today. The "cat's meow" describes ideas that were truly "too cool for words"! The phrase "the cat's pajamas" means the same thing, only no one seems to know why. Another cat expression is "cool cat", who is someone who keeps up with all the fads and trends. So, I assume that a cool cat can say something that's really the cat's meow! :)
