    Who was a clever boy to guess the Gaelic ! ( They often like to put the definite article in , to emphasise the importance ; thus one of the single malt Scotch whiskys is called "The Talisker" , not "Talisker" , and so on ) , and what could be more important than the National language ? Not that many if any actually speak it or understand it......

The glove refers to the sheaths of the cat's claws so it is taken as a figurative warning to not touch a Scottish wildcat with claws extended.
    haha.. sounds like Diane to me.
