Amplify the idea when the cat is away the mice will play

Answers (1)


The saying the cat is away, the mice will play means people will  take advantage if a figure of authority is absent.  It means some people will behave the way they like or badly with other people if someone who is at higher power is not present.

This proverb was given by Thomas Heywood in ' A Woman Kill'd with Kindness'
