Number 3 is so wrong it is laughable, it actually comes from the navy and the cat is the whip they used on miscreants. Because of this, the rest of the list becomes suspect.

Anne,
Selling cats instead of pigs was a common practise. I don't know if your explanation is true but it is wrong to dismiss another.

Anne,

..and I'm sure you've heard the old saying; A cat in the hand is worth two in a bag?

Susannah, I think the saying is "a bird in the bush is worth two in the birdcage" - or something like that.

Number 9 too. Centuries ago if you didn't have anywhere to sleep you paid a penny to hang your arms over a rope and sleep stood up, so the rats didn't gnaw away at you. To sleep tight meant to ensure the rope was tight otherwise you'd end up flat on your face.

Carmellia,

Isn’t that similar to being hungover- where you would sleep hungover a rope?

Number 1 didn't exactly start well? The phrase in mind for their explanation is IMHO better matched to the term; "don't look a gift-horse in the mouth"
