Ye cats and little fishes

Referencing a December 10, 2005 query re: "Hells bells and little fishes," someone asked if anyone else had heard "Ye cats and little fishes." That was/is common in my family - in CA since the early 1900s, with ties to Canada/England in the 1700/1800s.

Our "Hells bells" was used plain, but awhile back, I learned from a friend born circa the 50s, in London, that "Hells bells, and buckets of blood" was used in her circle!
