That Cat is a flamboyant one…

Rum Tum Tiger

Character in the play “CATs!” was borrowed from Old Possums book of Cats by T.S. Eliot
“The Rum Tum Tugger is a Curious Cat:
If you offer him pheasant he would rather have grouse.
If you put him in a house he would much prefer a flat,
If you put him in a flat then he’d rather have a house.
If you set him on a mouse then he only wants a rat,
If you set him on a rat then he’d rather chase a mouse.
Yes the Rum Tum Tugger is a Curious Cat –
And there isn’t any call for me to shout it:
For he will do
As he do do
And there’s no doing anything about it!”
— T.S. Eliot.

I wrote a poem about a pet cat , based off T.S. Eliots poem, who also had curious behaviors..
