CAT-TIONARY: CAT GOT YOUR TONGUE?

"cat got your tongue?"
The phrase probably comes from a custom in the Mideast
hundreds of years ago,
when it was common to punish a thief
by cutting off their right hand,
and a liar by ripping out their tongue.
These severed body parts were given
to the king's pet cats as their daily food.
is this enough now to untie your tongue
& get you talking?
