What does it mean when people “let the cat out of the bag”? It means the truth came out. It might come from farmers selling pigs long ago. Sometimes a sneaky farmer would slip a cat in a bag instead of a piglet, since cats were less expensive. We guess whether you’re a cat or a pig, you’re glad to be out of the bag.

*Wee ones:* Who has more legs, a cat or a pig?

*Little kids:* If a cat and pig fall asleep at 2 pm and nap for 3 hours, will they be up in time for dinner at 6 pm? *Bonus:* Cats eat about 1 ounce of cat food for every pound of body weight each day. If a kitty weighs 10 pounds, how much food does it eat in a week?

*Big kids:* A domestic pig can weigh more than 700 pounds! If one weighs just 400 pounds, how many 10-pound cats would have to pile up to match the pig? *Bonus:* If the pig then peed and weighed 1 pound less, how much would it weigh?

Answers:

*Wee ones:* They’re the same! Each animal has 4 legs.

*Little kids:* Yes, since they’ll wake up at 5 pm. *Bonus:* 70 ounces.

*Big kids:* 40 cats. *Bonus:* 399 pounds.
