Today, I will introduce an another idiomatic expression about ( = neko = cats )

猫の手も借りたいぐらい忙しい ( = neko no te mo karitai gurai isogashii = I would like to borrow even a cat’s paw )

means…..

I’m extremely busy so I would even appreciate the help of a cat.

eg:

Student : マキ先生、忙しそうですね。

maki sensei, isogashisou desu ne.

Maki sensei, you seem to be busy.

Maki : ええ、猫の手も借りたいほどですよ

ee, neko no te mo karitai hodo desu yo.

Yes, I’m extremely busy.

プロビンシャル・テストまであと一か月とちょっと。猫の手も借りたいほど忙しいですが、がんばります!

I have only 1 month + till the Japanese Provincial test and I am super busy now, but I will do my best !!

Contact me if you need a help for the Provincial test. (^^)
