Did I hear Clan Chattan mentioned ? Sounds like we're entering Gow territory - "Touch Not The Cat Bot A Glove" and all that .

Being of the confederation, I guess we should have been more mindful of the Scottish Wildcat. What I do remember, as a wee nipper all those years ago though, was at my Gran's house (Alpine Cottage) in Kirkmichael, Perthshire, the woodsmoke hanging in the air through the village and also red-deer skin and a moth-eaten Wildcat skin draped over a chair in a bedroom. I think the poor thing died of moth-infestation ! I also remember that a Wildcat used to seek shelter in the woodshed behind the house during winter (the snows around Kirkmichael could be really impressive) and my Dad surprised while one looking for fire-logs and it leapt over his shoulder and bounded through the snow into the darkness.

The McIntosh brothers, Daniel and Charles (aka Chilly) organised and commanded the 1st and 2nd Creek Mounted Volunteers for the Confederacy. They were in action in the Westen theater of Arkansas and the Indian Territory (Oklahoma) etc. Among various actions, they took part in the Battle of Pea Ridge (aka Elkhorn Tavern).

They were among the last Confederate units to surrender in 1865.
