they cast their wild eyes at you

I adore cats that have turned wild, their hair standing on end. They hunt birds, prowl, roam the streets like demons. They cast their wild eyes at you, ready to pounce on your face. Have you noticed that female cats in the wild are always pregnant? Obviously, they think of 
nothing but love.
