: Have looked up your search,can anyone explain why something that seems ok but is a bad deal is said to have 'whiskers on it'? Are cats a bad deal?
:I think whiskers here are supposed to be a sign of age--if that's not vetoed by the context. Cats are not a bad deal. Even elderly gentlemen are not a bad deal, unless you are expecting a baby.
