Something's missing...

Something is missing from this definition. I just can't quite put my finger on it... --Horace 04:49, 5 March 2007 (EST)

I'm certain you're thinking of "mature female cat" (versus "tom.")

The only other thing I can possibly think of is "A very generous, pleasant, remarkable or attractive woman" (Wentworth and Flexner, Dictionary of American Slang, p. 415) where they give as examples "Wouldn't it be luck if some ritzy queen fell for him" (J. T. Farrell), "What a lady... a queen" (Salinger, Catcher in the Rye). To which I'd add this one, from Sinclair Lewis' Babbitt, Chum Frink's poem about how wonderful it is that America is the same everywhere:

For all the crowd would be so swell,
in just the same fine sort of jeans
they wear at home, and all the queens
with spiffy bonnets on their beans,
and all the fellows standing round
a-talkin' always, I'll be bound,
the same good jolly kind of guff,
'bout autos, politics and stuff and
baseball players of renown that
Nice Guys talk in my home town!
