Meanings of "look what the cat dragged..."


Said when someone shows up unexpectedly, or someone you don't like arrives somewhere. It's said because cats often bring in mice, birds, etc. that people don't want.

Example: If you're at a party and your ex walks in, you might say, "Well, look what the cat dragged in."

Astronautalis - Dimitri Mendeleev

The watchmaker breaks sweat, he can't tame a dumb spring
Then one day its as plain as the nose above your smug grin
Like, "look what the cat dragged in!"
Woke from a dream, hands heavy in cold sweat
