  1. “They call that thing a cat owl. Humph! It may have resembled one of my family before it was stuffed. But now — well —
  2. “I’ll leave it to anybody; does that bundle of hay and feathers look anything like –“
  3. This cat owl  didn’t happen to be stuffed, and could stand such calumny no longer.

C. Barnes, Harper’s Young People, vol. XIV, 1893, p. 336.

Peter Newell also used the structural similarities of animals in a strip that appeared a few months earlier in the same paper:
