Ever heard of that expression? Sure, it's animal cruelty and all, but what "other" ways to skin a cat can you think of, without actually doing it. I boil the cat so the skin gets nice and supple.

The actual saying is, "There is more than one way to skin a cat". It simply means there is more than one way to do something. It has nothing to do with actually skinning a cat. Art

I am aware of the meaning, and the original usage. It's an axiom, like "the pot calling the kettle black." Maybe it would have been less sarcastic of me if I had asked why we use phrases like that when realistically, we don't really know of a whole lot of ways to skin a cat. So, why then do we use the phrase to signify that there is more than one way to do something?

You are a disgusting and perverted individual. You should NEVER boil a cat to get its skin off! The boiling water will melt all the fat in the skin and you'll just end up with a blubbery mess that won't tan well.

Are we skinning the cat to use its skin for tanning? Because I thought the goal was just to deprive the cat of skin.
