After watching the Cats movie, I still don’t know what I watched. My eyes hurt. And aside from some good musical numbers, there wasn’t much dialogue that didn’t involve Jellicle cats. I did catch some ridiculous Cats movie quotes and puns…about cats, especially from Jennyanydots. There were a few heart-warming quotes, too, from Old Deuteronomy.

The Cats movie is an adaptation of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s musical Cats. It tells the story of a crew (or cult) of Jellicle cats.
