Double-dogs and kittys indeed. ::rofl

It is difficult to see the connection between 'pool/pot of money' and a kitty.

Pot, pool, kitty. All three terms are pretty much used up here.

*I was just trying to make the point that I ain't no gambler, while our Marie plainly and demonstrably is. But come to think of it, "kitty" sure is an odd word . . . *

Guess it's one of the things that attracted me to poker. Anything with a kitty can't be bad!!!!
