Kill the cat and burn the gourds

Posted by Melanie on November 01, 2010 at 21:15

I heard an elderly woman say once "that's what the saying 'kill the cat and burn the gourds' comes from". In reference to moving residence. I think it was in refernce to pioneers that moved out of necessity and not taking "expendables" with them. I was trying to find it again... anyone heard of it before?
