There used to be a kids party game called ‘Poor Pussy.’ To play, everyone sits in a circle around the ‘pussy.’ The pussy then has to kneel in front of someone and meow 3 times, and that person has to ‘stroke the back of’ the pussy’s head and say ‘poor pussy’ without laughing. If they laugh, they become the pussy, but if they don’t, ‘the pussy must try someone else.’ Source Source 2 Source 3
