Cliché: the cat's whiskers

Meaning: defining good feature about something (example)

Rewrite 1: the dog's spots
Rewrite 2: the bird's song
Rewrite 3: the lion's mane
Rewrite 4: the dude's 'tude
Rewrite 5: the boa's hug

Comments: Another version defines this cliché as meaning superiority, so that's another possible rewrite or recasting opportunity.
