  • (adjective) - To turn cat in pan is a proverbial expression signifying a changing of sides in religion or politics. It has been suggested that it should be cate, the old word for cake, which being baked and consequently turned in the pan aptly elucidates the meaning of the proverb. --William Toone's Etymological Dictionary of Obsolete Words, 1832
