puss in boots, tough as boots

Heath Robinson illustrates the most bad-ass Puss in Boots ever, in Old-time Stories (New York: Dodd, Mead, 1921).  I didn't know Robinson was a British cartoonist famous for coming up with crazily-purposed machines, among which was the "multimovement tabby silencer" that automatically lobbed water at howling cats.  Which explains perhaps how he could perfectly capture that cat's expression.
