The first gain is cats purring.
What a newcomer wins in a game is usually lost again later.
Where does it come from?
Cat purr may have been used just for the rhyme, but there are two other possible explanations. The purr of a cat produces nothing and is therefore worthless, like the first winnings of the newcomer. The other possibility is that cat purr equated here with cat love. It is a false love, because a cat will purr one moment and then suddenly scratch the hand of its owner. By extension, this is therefore false gain.
