WILDCAT CREEK (Wilbarger County). Wildcat Creek rises near Farm Road 924 in northwestern Wilbarger County (at 34°16' N, 99°26' W) and flows southeast for ten miles to its mouth on the Pease River, two miles northwest of Vernon (at 34°11' N, 99°17' W). The stream flows through severely eroded land characterized by gullies and sparse vegetation, though the clay and sandy loam soils along its immediate banks support water-tolerant hardwoods and grasses.
