Awesome, very good. Apparently coined back in the 1920's, but it is still in use today.

Pinkie Pie: She's the head of the pack, all right. The pick of the litter! The CAT'S PAJAMA'S! Oh, wait! Why would Applejack take some poor kitty's PJ's? That's not very sporting of her.

The term "cat's pajamas" comes from E.B. Katz, an English tailor of the late 1700's and early 1800's, who made the finest silk pajamas for royalty and other wealth patrons. This phrase is often likened to and/or confused with the 20's term "cat's meow".
