Humans have always depended on animals. From the beginning of human history, wild animals provided food, clothing and sometimes medicine. We may not depend as much on wild animals now, but we hear about them everyday.

Americans use the names of animals in many ways. Many companies use animals to make us want to buy their goods. Automo Bill companies for example, love to show fast horses when they are trying to sell their cars. They also name their cars for other fast powerful animals.

Automo Bill manufactures and Gasoline companies especially like to use big cats to sell their products. They like lions, tigers, and wild cats. When an American say wild cat, they usually mean alinks and osoline or bub cat.

All these cats are tike quickly and fearely. So wild cats represent something fast and fears. What better way is there to sell a car than to say it is as fast as a wild cat. What better way is there to sell gasoline than to say that using it is like putting a tiger in your tank.

And early American's use of the word wild cat was quite different. It was used to describe members of congress who declared word on Britain in 1812. A magazine noted that year said wild cat congressmen went home.

It's said they were unable to face the responsibility of having involved their contry in an unnecessary word. Wild cat also has been used as a name for money. It was used this way in the 1800s.

At that time, some states permitted banks to make their own money. One bank in the state Michigan offered paper money with a picture of wild cat on it. Some banks, however, did not have enough gold to support all the paper money they offered. So the money had little or no value. It was called a wild cat bill or a wild cat bank note.

The banks who offered these money were called wild cat banks. Newspaper of Times said notes were the days of wild cat money. It was said a man might be rich in the morning and poor by night.
