I took passage with Cap- tain Rowe, in the schooner Wild Cat
, and, after a sail of about twenty-four hours, I found myself near the place of my birth.
His hands were outstretched, claw-like and bony, his eyes were fierce as a wild cat
Now it was a lithe, furtive stoat which shot across the path upon some fell errand of its own; then it was a wild cat
which squatted upon the outlying branch of an oak and peeped at the traveller with a yellow and dubious eye.
And what's more it won't be one of these wild cat
A minute more, and this had roused me from my trance: - Steerforth had left his seat, and gone to her, and had put his arm laughingly about her, and had said, 'Come, Rosa, for the future we will love each other very much!' And she had struck him, and had thrown him off with the fury of a wild cat
, and had burst out of the room.
One large bundle held their all -- bed, coffee-mill, looking-glass, hens -- all but the cat; she took to the woods and became a wild cat
, and, as I learned afterward, trod in a trap set for woodchucks, and so became a dead cat at last.
- This day went abroad with my gun and my dog, and killed a wild cat
; her skin pretty soft, but her flesh good for nothing; every creature that I killed I took of the skins and preserved them.
"They slay the buck, and the moose, and the wild cat
, and all the beasts that range the woods, and stuffing them with worthless rags, and placing eyes of glass into their heads, they set them up to be stared at, and call them the creatur's of the Lord; as if any mortal effigy could equal the works of his hand!"
Out of your wild cats
must tigers have evolved, and out of your poison- toads, crocodiles: for the good hunter shall have a good hunt!
He called out to the youth: "By heavens, if I had ten thousand wild cats
like you I could tear th' stomach outa this war in less'n a week!" He puffed out his chest with large dignity as he said it.
I'm as stiff as a dead body, and as full of ugly scratches as if I had been fighting all day yesterday with wild cats
See how it flies, like a troop of wild cats
, at Mr Riderhood's eyes!'
