CAT-TIONARY: CURIOSITY KILLED THE CAT

"curiosity killed the cat"
The saying originally was
"care kills a cat,"
and began in the 16th century.
"Care"
was a warning that worry is bad for your health
and can lead to an early grave;
the phrase was a recognition that
cats seem to be very cautious and careful.
Over time,
the word "care" evolved into "curiosity."
H-mmm!!
who knew?!?

Interesting, thanks for the info.

I do agree, curiosity can kill a cat or human over time.

Perhaps I can learn from cats to be down to earth, cautious ,put my curiosity in a sealed container never to be opened again, my health would be better.
