May 13, 2016

With so many large male cats with big personalities here at the cattery, we are reminded of the original Rock Star kitty, the Rum Tum Tugger!

The Rum Tum Tugger originated in a poem by T.S. Eliot.   He is a rebel who relishes in his individuality.  He always does the opposite of what's expected of him and is notoriously hard to please.

The Rum Tum Tugger makes for one of the most memorable characters from Andrew Lloyd Webbers "Cats" because of the dancer's ability to accurately replicate male cat posturing. The three words the actors who play the role are given to describe the essence of the character are 'Perverse, Preening, and Independent'.

 If your cat is always on the wrong side of every door, then you've got a Rum Tum Tugger!

Now here are the other Rock Star Kitties who have graced us with their presences today...
