Cat
 
  Mrs. Crupp had indignantly assured him that there wasn’t room to swing a cat there; but as Mr. Dick justly observed to me, sitting down on the foot of the bed, nursing his leg, “You know, Trotwood, I don’t want to swing a cat. I never do swing a cat. Therefore what does that signify to me!”
Dickens.

        If ’twere not for my cat and dog,
I think I could not live.
Ebenezer Elliott.

        Confound the cats! All cats—alway—
Cats of all colors, black, white, gray;
By night a nuisance and by day—
                Confound the cats!
Dobbin.

  It has been the providence of nature to give this creature nine lives instead of one.
Pilpay.
