    Cats 1998: What Is Kittens Part One

    So, this is actually more of a way of determining the various age groups of characters. It’s more than just kittens and adults. There are several different subcategories.

    I’ll start by saying that different sources perceive Electra, Etcetera, George, Jemima, Mistoffelees, Mungojerrie, Plato, Pouncival, Rumpleteazer, Tumblebrutus, and Victoria as kittens. All of them come across as “baby” sometimes and none of them seem to recognize Grizabella. In some other productions, but usually not 1998, Alonzo, Coricopat, and Tantomile are also seen as “baby”. But, they’re all over the place.

    Part 1: Gumbie Cat

    So, everyone gets in place for the first musical number. Bomba, Demeter, and Jellylorum get in place to sing as the Gumbie Trio, while Munkustrap gathers everyone else in a loose circle around him:

    Mistoffelees, who is about to embarrass himself, is also standing. Etcetera, Victoria, Electa, Jemima, and Mungojerrie are on one side, while Rumpleteazer, Cassandra, and Alonzo or on the other. Further in the back behind Alonzo are Plato and Tumblebrutus, while Coricopat and Tantomile are in the far back, in front of the car. Munk acts like he’s putting on a show for the kittens here, but several cats that are not considered kittens are also there. Also, George and Pouncival are missing. There’s always at least one missing. This is what happens when you try herding cats.

    Now, jump from the beginning of the number to the end:

    A bunch of cats congratulate Jenny on her performance. This includes the Gumbie Trio, with Jellylorum just offscreen, as well as Skimble and Asparagus. These are The Adults. Munkustrap also goes into this category. Asparagus, Bombalurina, Demeter, Jellylorum, Jennyanydots, Munkustrap, and Skimbleshanks are the responsible adults of the group. Jenny, Jelly, Skimble, and Asparagus come across as a bit older than the other three.

    The other adult characters, as well as most of kittens and maybe kittens were part of the Beetles Tattoo and are either hanging around in the background or offstage changing. So, there’s a reason why Alonzo, Cassandra, and the Psychic Twins are missing.

    Part 2: The Rum Tum Tugger

    I don’t have any screenshots for this one, since I don’t feel like I really need them.

    Tugger is a controversial figure among the Jellicle Cats, especially the older ones. So, his presence sorts everyone into groups.

    Out of the characters usually considered adults, Bombalurina, Cassandra, and the Twins all like Tugger. In most productions I’ve scene, Demeter is also a Tugger fan, but in this production, she’s not comfortable with him. Meanwhile, Munk and Alonzo are Not Amused, but they’re calm about it. They mostly wait out the number in the background. Strangely, Alonzo is part of Tugger’s group at the ball, so maybe his feelings are a bit more mixed.

    Skimble, Jelly, Jenny, and Asparagus, the oldest of the adults, are all some combination of enraged, disgusted, and horrified by Tugger’s antics. Skimble even tries to stop some of the younger cats from joining.

    As for the younger characters, almost all of them love Tugger. He’s their rockstar. Mungojerrie is absent during the number, for some reason. This is odd, because he’s usually in it, often trying to copy Tugger’s moves. Here, Jerrie and Teazer, still in Beetle costumes, see Tugger show up and they both run offstage. Teazer later comes back, but Jerrie doesn’t. Maybe he did something to piss Tugger off the other day.

    The only young cat against Tugger is Mistoffelees, who rolls his eyes and calls him a bore. He spends the rest of the number sulking in the corner. After the number, during the instrumental reprise, Misto gets up and joins the dance party. The older cats chase Tugger around, trying to shut everything down, and Skimble stops by Misto and seems very disappointed in him, but he no longer cares. The order of events makes it look like Misto got annoyed with Tugger for kicking a ball at him, and generally just finds him annoying, and he wants the approval of the adults, so he insults Tugger and storms off. But, when Tugger gathers his fans, pelvic thrusts in their faces, and shows off his ass, Misto pays attention, though he might’ve just been annoyed by the girls screaming. And immediately after that display, Misto joins the party. Was he convinced that Tugger isn’t a terrible bore by watching his ass? 

    Anyway, the young people love Tugger, the older adults don’t, and the ones in-between are split. Tugger himself plays of Bombalurina on equal footing. He isn’t just another fangirl. That means they’re probably the same age, so Tugger’s one of The Adults.

    So:

    Adults: Asparagus, Bombalurina, Demeter, Jelly, Jenny, Munk, Skimble, Tugger

    Younger Adults?: Alonzo, Cassandra, Coricopat, Tantomile

    Kittens/Maybe Kittens: Electra, Etcetera, George, Jemima, Misto, Jerrie, Plato, Pouncival, Teazer, Tumblebrutus, Victoria

    By connecting with the adults and going against Tugger, Misto might be a little older than some of the others.

    This turned out to be way more exhausting to write than I thought, so I’m splitting this into parts. Part Two should at least cover Grizabella and Bustopher.

    Thigh lover Munkustrap. He loves squishing Demeter's thighs, kissing them, feeling them beneath his paws. He likes laying his head in her lap, or when she's got her legs across his he can't help but frame them, gently squeezing his way up and down or resting a paw between them. Thighs are just comfort for him! And Demeter never minds when he gets handsy in any aspect, especially when it results in special attention. Thigh lover Munkustrap

    Munkustrap rage watches reality TV shows and complains about the toxic relationships. Everyone tells him to just change the channel but he won’t. It makes him so mad to see people treating their partners badly. He would never dream of saying or doing some of the things the people on tv do. 

    “They should be able to work it out! He should’ve never have said that to her,” he complains.

    “How did these two ever think they were compatible? They should be far away from each other at all times.”

    “I would never act like this.” 

    He grumbles about it all, yet keeps watching, draped across Demeter’s lap. He wraps his arms a little tighter around her waist. She laughs and kisses his cheek.

    Demeter loves watching Munkustrap sleep. She admits that sounds weird, and so it’s not something she really talks about but. Just seeing him all relaxed, his guard entirely down, his face peaceful is such a blessing to her, especially when they’re cuddled up. The gentle sound of his breathing, his chest rising and falling against her, the warmth he gives off... she loves it. She loves him

    Cats being a piece of media with basically no canon makes for some really interesting discourse. Like ok it's fine to not like certain ships or whatever but maybe stop calling people gross for something that's subjective. This is a universe where there's really very little known information and it all changes between incarnations and stuff so like there's really very little set in stone, like just let people enjoy things without assigning moral judgement.

    This post is not for proshipper btw, kindly fuck off

    Edit: I want to add that if you specifically make nsfw content about characters that you portray as family or underage then this does not apply to you, I'm judging you for that

    Demeter having a conversation with someone and Munkustrap coming up behind her, slipping his paws around her waist and resting his chin on her head. Normally she would jump at someone coming up on her like that but she recognizes his touch anywhere, and so her only reaction is to fondly roll her eyes, and lean back until they can look each other in the eyes.

    "Hello dear," he'll say.

    "May I help you?" she replies, knowing well that he wants nothing more than to be touching her.

    "Not at all. Just needed a place to rest my head," he jokes, dropping a kiss between her ears.

    Provided Deme's conversation partner isn't too disgusted by this sweet display, the conversation continues with Munk wrapped around her, like he's just another part of her. He may offer some bits to the conversation but is just as content to daydream there or just listen. As long as he can be there with her that's good enough for him. These little moments throughout the day help him recharge his batteries, and hers too really. They're nice really nice

    Aelina x Carbucketty

    Carbucketty's POV:

    I quietly sneak out of my room, careful not to wake up Aelina who was lying next to me.

    I tiptoe out of our den and slip into the main clearing. There, me and my fellow Jellicles have hidden party decorations to throw a surprise birthday party for Aelina.

    "Ready Buck?" Tumble asked as I enter the clearing.

    "Course I am," I grin back.

    I lift a small box stuffed with confetti, while Pounce grabbed a box with deflated balloons.

    "Do we really have to do this?" Plato grumbled while we placed the boxes in the centre.

    "Platey, it's Lina's birthday. Have some spirit," Electra said, frowning at Plato.

    Demeter rolled her eyes at Plato, then strung red confetti all around the clearing

    -TIME SKIP-

    Third Person's POV:

    Carbucketty looked around the area proudly as he saw the scene in front of him.

    Scarlet balloons floating around the place, brushing agaisnt red confetti hanging from the junk piles. Shiny sparkles were scattered around the floor and a massive banner hung from the electric wires saying;

    'HAPPY BIRTHDAY AELINA!'

    In bright red paint.

    Suddenly, the sound of footsteps coming Carbucketty and Aelina's den made the cats stop still. Quickly, they ran under various piles of rubbish, preparing to surprise Aelina.

    The door opened and the ginger queen was revealed, staring in wonder at the decorations around the clearing.

    "SURPRISE!"

    They all yelled, and hugged Aelina tightly.

    Aelina laughed as she was smushed in between all the cats, Tugger ruffling her mane.

    "Guys," she laughed.

    "You didn't need to do all this!" she said, stepping back, smiling.

    "Yeah, well, I didn't want to-," Plato was cut off by Bomba stamping on his foot.

    Carbucketty grinned and stepped forward.

    "Happy birthday love," he said to Aelina, and hugged her tight.

    "Love you Bucky," Aelina replied.

    Bombalurina x Cassandra

    Bombalurina smiled and led Cassandra out of their den. They walked together to the nearby park. The sun was setting but it was still light enough to see. Bomba put her hand behind her back and rubbed the velvet of the black box with her thumb which was inside a little bag tied around her waist. They continued walking, talking happily to each other, until they reached a bench surrounded by trees. Bomba took a deep breath and stopped walking. Cassandra looked back at her, concerned.

    "Cass?" Bomba said. She was glad her voice wasn't shaking.

    Cassandra went back to her.

    "You okay?" She asked.

    Bomba smiled.

    "Cass, I love you. You've completely changed my life for the better and I want to be with you for the rest of my life. You make me more happy than anyone else. I love you so much, so that's why I need to ask you this,"

    Bomba got down on one knee and held out the open ring box.

    "Cassandra, will you become my mate?"

    Cassandra's hands flew to her mouth in shock. Bomba couldn't see her facial expression underneath her paws.

    "B-Bombie. I-I'm sorry but no. I-It's too soon," Cassandra took a step back. Bomba's face fell and she stood up.

    "C-Cass, I'm sorry"

    Cassandra shook her head.

    "Just go," she whispered.

    "But,"

    "Go!" She yelled.

    Bomba gasped and ran back to the junkyard, leaving Cassandra alone.

    *TRIGGER WARNING - SELF HARM AND SUICIDE*

    Bomba stared at the scars on her arms. Her gaze fell on the razor next to her.

    One more couldn't hurt.

    Or two.

    Maybe she could get away with three.

    Or four.

    Who cared about her scars?

    Five.

    Who cared about her pain?

    Six.

    Who cared about her mind?

    Seven.

    Who cared about her health?

    Eight.

    Who cared about her soul?

    Nine.

    Who cared about her life?

    Ten.

    No one cared about her death.

    Hello welcome to it’s 3am and my brain decided to give me ideas for stories.

    Mungocavity’s First Date: Mungojerrie brings Macavity to an abandoned theme park. Both find it pretty cool until a clown starts chasing them around. 

    Plot twist; Rumpleteazer had found out about their date and decided to be a little shit and chase them around dressed as a clown.
