The Scots Magazine - - Wild About Scotland -

The Couthie Spur­tle is a flat-bladed uten­sil used for flip­ping pan­cakes or oat­cakes and not for stir­ring por­ridge.

Por­ridge draw­ers were reg­u­lar fea­tures in Scot­tish kitchens, used for the stor­age of cold por­ridge for snacks.

The ex­pres­sion “feel­ing your oats” means be­ing ex­u­ber­ant or high-spir­ited.
