Use the infinitive form of the verb (but without “to”) for the principal verb of a verbal phrase. Thus for the saying ''It’s raining cats and dogs,'' or ''It was raining cats and dogs,'' or ''I think it’s going to rain cats and dogs any minute now,'' or ''It’s rained cats and dogs for the last week solid'' the entry should be (and is) under [[rain cats and dogs]].
