I just love cats they are so cute! As so many people know I have a much loved cat called 'Princess Chloe'. She is the light of my life, wherever I am in the house she is never far from my side, except when she slopes off to a suitable warm place for her afternoon nap. When I am tapping away on my keyboard she curls up on my lap, occasionally making her input by tapping the keyboard.
Princess Chloe aged 13 years.
T. S. Lewis. wrote the most enchanting stories about Cats, his book called
'Old Possums Book of Practical Cats'
was turned into a musical and called CATS which was a smash hit worldwide.
Who can forget the celebrated singer and actress, Elaine Page's wonderful performance of 'Memory' in Cats'.
This recording launched her into a fabulous, enduring career, she went on to star in Evita, Chess and many more wonderful Lloyd Webber music.
Macavity by T S Lewis.
Macavity is a mystery cat : he's called the hidden paw -
For he's the master CRIMINAL who can defy the law.
He's the bafflement of Scotland yard, the Flying Squad's despair.
For when they reach the scene of CRIME - Macavity's not there!
And they say that all the CATS who's wicked deeds are widely known
( I might mention Mungojerrie, I might mention Griddlebone)
Are nothing more than agents for the cat who all the time
just controls their operations the Napoleon of crime!( 1st and last verse)
This is part of T S Lewis's .
Old Possum's Book of Practical Cats.
