What the heck is a Jellicle Cat?

Asked by Russell Vaughan

Introduced in Eliot’s poem The Song of the Jellicles, they were originally depicted as commonly nocturnal black-and-white cats, which means that they sleep all day and move at night. Specifically, Eliot mentions that they like to gather at an event called the “Jellicle Ball”.
