THE ‘CAT IN THE BAG’ ROLE (CLINICAL CONSULTING PHARMACIST) VICTORIA, BC

CAT IN THE BAG ROLE

You’ve definitely heard the phrase … and you know it has to do with revealing a secret … but how did it originate?

Well … sometime in or around the 1700s, people bought and sold piglets from one another – in bags.

Every so often … certain underhanded individuals would try and slip a few cats into the bag (since cats were worth far less than piglets) … to try and increase profitability!

If a discerning buyer was to open the bag and let a cat out … the scam was exposed!

What does this have to do with Match and Fable’s latest role?
Well … absolutely nothing!

That said … if you’re a pharmacist living in Victoria (or looking to move there) … Match and Fable’s Kelly Meadows would love to reveal a secret to you, as well.
