We felines are sung about with joy, humor, wistfulness, love, suspicion, irony, sadness, and many other emotions and perspectives.

Shows how clever we are (hehe)!

“Cats”, the Stage Musical

music about cats

We’re so popular there’s even a whole musical dedicated to our quirky wonderfulness…

“Cats” by Andrew Lloyd Webber, Richard Stilgoe, and Trevor Nunn is a worldwide classic based on “Old Possum’s Book of Practical Cats“, by the poet T.S. Elliot.

There are many great songs from the original musical, but the most famous is “Memory”.

You’ll find a list of all the songs in the soundtrack at Cats (Musical) Songs, StageAgent.

    Sources

    Sources used on this website are either primary or secondary.

    Primary are always preferable and have the most reliable information because primary sources are original and directly referenced.

    Scientific abstracts and data are good examples of primary sources.

    Secondary sources are weaker because they usually consist of opinions or articles that give no sources of their own, however, sometimes they refer to primary sources.

    Thus, when I use secondary sources most are those with some authority, such as veterinarian or cat behaviorist books and articles.
