  • "Are" defines plural, and "one way" is not plural. You could say "there are more than one, ways to kill a cat". But, there is more than one way, to kill a cat.
  • I have no idea what one is the right one but I grew up with "There's more than one way to skin a cat" For what it is worth.
  • The first is correct. The second is incorrect. There is only one way to skin that cat.
  • I think most people grew up saying, "There's more than one way to skin a cat." But, now that you point out the grammatical glitch, my faith in the English language is hanging in the balance. (Disclaimer: I myself, have never skinned a cat!!)
  • The "is" verb is singular as it refers the subject "way" which is also singular. There may be more than one way to skin a cat, but I don't advise it. Sounds gruesome. Are you cooking some exotic Oreintal dish?
  • There are two versions of this maxim. 1) There is (there's) more than one way to skin a cat. There is is referring to one way, so is singular 2) There are more ways to skin a cat. In this case, there are is referring to ways, which is plural
  • There isnt one way MORE correct of those two choices There is only one way to say it. There is more than one way to skin a cat. Saying "There are more than one way to skin a cat" is grammatically incorrect Saying There's more than one way to skin a cat is simply saying there is.
  • i think either one sounds okay to me
