An idiomatic expression similar to "you can't have your cake and eat it too". The phrase originated from a viral youtube video in which a girl professes her love for cats but is devastated that she can't hug every cat, despite how much she wants to.
Debbie: I bought all this cake and food for my birthday party, but because I bought so much food I don't have any money left to pay my friends to attend. I guess you just can't hug every cat.
