Confusing Bullshit (15th of August)

19 down: Happily accept fighting cat misplaced tail (4, 2)

The answer is warm to and, as far as I can tell, the only possible synonym for that, which is one almighty stretch, is happily accept fighting. Other than that, I’ve got nothing.

  1. This was one of the three JA and I missed.

    I think, in desperation, I wrote in TAKE TO, without having an inkling why. This is about the only one I am still not 100% sure about. “Fighting” could be “war” and “cat” could be “tom”, so cat misplaced = mto. Hence war mto = WARM TO = happily accept? “tail” might be just to indicate that mto is at the end. Or something. I think a definition of “come to like” would be closer as a synonym to the answer.

  2. I’ve just stumbled across this. Yes, I know, I need a job! My take on 19D is exactly as per NC’s explanation with one small variation:
    cat = TOM
    cat misplaced tail = (misplace the last letter) = MTO
