Excerpt from The Glorious Rascal: Pretty Maids All in a Row

The boy felt sorry for those cats out there in the fields. They must be cold, maugre their fur, and might be hungry, and already to his early sharpening senses to be cold and to be hungry were the two unforgivable ills. He was not cold himself that day, for there had been a fire in their room from the morning, and he was not hungry either, for there was food in their larder and he had eaten liberally enough, Once and again. He was reminded now of what cold felt like, standing there on the edge of the snowy street; but for all the cold the snow tempted him, and he was making to paddle out further, with some dim thought of calling to those distant cats, and possibly playing with them, when the hand of destiny descended upon him.
