Oh, God, they’ve given me a defective one, it’s going into convulsions—a small mew escaped her.
«О Боже, они дали мне испорченную — у нее начинаются конвульсии». Корделия тихонько застонала.

For a while she could be heard scolding at everything, flinging dresses and other things about, and pulling the ears of her favourite cat. Then the door opened again, and puss, mewing pitifully, was flung forth by the tail.
За перегородкой долго еще слышалось, как, продолжая бранить все и всех и проклинать свое житье, она швыряла свои вещи и драла за уши свою любимую кошку; наконец дверь приотворилась, и в нее вылетела брошенная за хвост, жалобно мяукавшая кошка.

From the main road, all you could see were garages and lock-ups, but around the corner, buildings which at one time would have housed horses and their coaches had been turned into mews flats.
С того места, где стояли детективы, им были видны лишь выстроившиеся вдоль красной линии гаражи и склады, однако за поворотом стояло несколько домов, которые когда-то служили конюшнями и каретными сараями, но теперь были перестроены под жилье.

Spurred on by this, he tried mewing like a cat; but this did not go off so well; and after one more quail-call, he looked at them all and stopped.
Это его поощрило, и он попробовал мяукать но мяуканье выходило у него не так хорошо он крикнул еще раз перепелом, посмотрел на всех и умолк.

He could not bear to see a slave pouting under a reprimand, no matter how well deserved, or hear a kitten mewing or a child crying; but he had a horror of having this weakness discovered.
Вопли раба, получавшего, быть может, и заслуженную порку, детский плач или жалобное мяуканье котенка были невыносимы для его ушей.

This was because the hawks and falcons in the castle mews were all Lancre birds and therefore naturally possessed of a certain "sod you" independence of mind.
Основная беда была в том, что все ястребы и соколы замка происходили родом из Ланкра, то есть обладали врожденной независимостью ума.

The garage in the mews where Harold kept his car was a private lock-up that he rented and there was no one to notice who came or went or any reason to remember one evening in particular.
В гараже, где Харольд держит машину, у него своя отдельная ячейка, так что сказать, когда именно он приходит или уходит, вряд ли кто сумеет, а уж тем более припомнить какой-то конкретный день.
