San Francisco millionaire Kate Birdsall Johnson, commissioned the painting of 42 of her 350 cats. Adapted from TS Eliot’s ‘Old Possum’s Book of Sensible Cats’, this ‘groundbreaking musical’ (Day-to-day Express) is set on the evening that the Jellicle Cats meet for the Jellicle Ball and comes together in a sparkling fusion of music, dance and verse. Since its founding 24 years ago, The Cat House on the Kings has saved more than 24,000 cats and 7,000 dogs (not counting the 40,000 animals we have spayed and neutered!) and presently cares for much more than 700 cats and kittens, a dozen or so dogs and a handful of peacocks.
On just one particular evening of the year, all Jellicle cats meet at the Jellicle Ball exactly where Old Deuteronomy, their wise and benevolent leader, makes the Jellicle decision and announces which of them will go up to The Heaviside Layer and be reborn into a whole new Jellicle life. Sorry I’ve missed VG Cats the past week but I wanted to get Super Powerful going again.
In addition to clear dangers such as rodenticides , insecticides , and herbicides , cats may possibly be poisoned by numerous chemical substances generally deemed secure by their human guardians, 108 simply because their livers are significantly less effective at some forms of detoxification than these of many other animals, including humans and dogs. Cats have strong, tightly controlled muscles and quickly reflexes that permit them to move speedily and gracefully.
Scherzinger had led the London cast of the musical , and was expected to take the leading role in New York. Like most mammals, cats have poorer colour vision and a much better sense of smell than humans. With an wonderful musical score that contains the timeless Memory”, spectacular set designs, stunning costumes and breathtaking choreography, CATS is a magical musical like no other.
