Never in my life have I seen a cat copy another cat. I hear the term copy cat go around a lot but I never really cared about it. so one day I got bored and started researching. So I decided to post about it today because why not.
I found this: “The expression may have originated from observing the habits of kittens that learned by imitating the behaviors of their mother. Copycat has been in recorded use since at least 1896, in Sarah Orne Jewett’s ” The Country of Pointed Firs ” but the expression could be many decades older.”
I haven’t seen a kitten with its mother either so that’s probably why.
