Ocelot, for instance (7)
I believe the answer is:
'ocelot for instance' is the definition.
(I know that ocelot is a type of wildcat)
This is all the clue.
(Other definitions for wildcat that I've seen before include "Commercially risky!" , "financially unsound?" , "Lynx, for example" , "Ferocious person" , "Animal (applied to strikes)" .)
