You're doing what to the cat's feet? / Idiom challenge


Ok, lesson learned...I'll tell you what it means this time.

buscar tres pies al gato

Can you guess? It means "to split hairs", make trivial distinctions, quibble

As before, the best sentence with the most votes wins.

No es para buscar tres pies al gato, pero ¿un gato ronco aún puede ronronear?

Not to split hairs, but can a hoarse cat still purr?
