Rum Tum Tugger, The Disobliging Cat (Eliot's Cats Series) by 

The words are a quote from a poem called “The Rum Tum Tugger” by T.S.Eliot, from the book titled: Old Possum’s Book of Practical Cats, on which, I’m told, the Broadway musical CATS is based.

This piece was featured in the Cats and Dogs group.

I am a professional Japanese-to-English translator and an Etegami artist. Etegami is a traditional Japanese folk art that combines thoughtful words with simple images painted on washi paper.

    congrats on your feature, Debbie!!! he reminds of a cat who used to chase me…yikes!

  • Someone recently told me this cat reminds her of the changeling cats (“ba-ke neko”) that feature in Japanese horror stories. Now I think of that each time I see it!
