Curiosity killed the cat

Curiosity killed the cat – Idiom Meme – meaning with picture

Curiosity killed the cat (idiom)

  • being inquisitive about other people’s affairs may get you into trouble.

Origin

  • Well everyone knows that cats are very curious creatures and poke their nose everywhere which can cause trouble. It is stated that the phrase ‘curiosity killed the cat’ is actually a spin-off of an old saying that really had nothing at all to do with the cat’s natural sleuthing abilities! In the 16th century, there was a saying, “care kills a cat”. This statement meant that cats seemed to be very cautious, careful and worrisome creatures, and too much anxiety can be bad for one’s health, even to the point of sending one to an early grave. A cat, then, could be killed by excessive “care” as indeed could a human. Over the years, the meaning of the word “care” changed, and the word “curiosity” was substituted in the phrase, intending to explain that this was a trait that got both people and cats into trouble sometimes!
