Where did the expression “raining cats and dogs” come from?
In mythology, the cat is believed to have great influence on the weather. Witches that rode on storms were said to take the form of cats. The dog is a signal of wind, as it was an attendant of Odin, the storm king. So cats symbolize heavy rain, and dogs symbolize strong gusts of wind.
