大家不要看錯囉

這個字是 burglar (小偷) 不是 burger (漢堡) 喔

說一個人是 cat burglar 當然和貓有關

它是指會爬到高處去行竊而不被發現的人

會用 cat 這種動物是因為貓很擅長爬高且很靈巧

如果是一般竊賊不會用 cat burglar

但是這個中文比較難翻譯

所以通常在中文裡都不會把 cat 的部份翻譯出來


我們來造些句:

The Johnsons’ house was broken into by a cat burglar yesterday.
(昨天有竊賊闖入強森一家。)

The cat burglar broke into my parents’ bedroom on the third floor.
(竊賊闖入我父母位於三樓的臥室。)

According to a witness, the cat burglar fell from the roof and broke his legs.
(根據證人的說詞,竊賊從屋頂摔落並跌斷雙腿。)
