Not a Cat

The common French expression "pas un chat", literally "not a cat", is just about equivalent to the English "not a soul".
It means "absolutely nobody", typically in the street, at a meeting or somewhere people would be expected.

No idea where it comes from.

Parting thot: "Whatever you are, be a good one." - Abraham Lincoln
