: : When I was young my mother used to say to me when
I would ask her why ? "Cats for to make kittens britches"
: : any one know or have ever heard this expression before..
: : lulu
: I have heard it but
as this way:
: "Cats fur to make kittens britches"
: I always thought it was just a bunch of nonsense my mother's nutty friend used to say among other weirdnesses.
This seems like it would make a little more sense as an answer to a sloppy "What fer?" as opposed to "Why?"...
