My Darlin’ Black Cat
yay its done! :’D 💙 this is a headcanon I was thinking about where Mistoffelees sees his danger as something that is dangerous, and keeps his magic a secret for his own and the Junkyard’s safety, but Tugger wants nothing more than to show off how special and magical Misto is, and to make everyone see Misto (including Misto himself) how Tugger sees him 🥺

The cast of the 2019 US tour of CATS needs your help!
Yesterday (April 15 2021), in a three-hour-long video, they and others in the Broadway community published the ‘receipts’ of the shady and downright cruel way that the production company for the tour and the Actors’ Equity Association have been collaborating at the actors’ expense.
This is, apparently, a long-standing problem and has affected many other touring productions: the AEA, which ought to be protecting them, sides with the powerful businesses or producers to screw over the performers.
In this instance, the actors are owed months of back pay and COVID relief; but what they’re primarily fighting for is transparency and accountability, and some serious changes to the culture of the AEA and the Broadway industry.
Brandon Michael Nase (Deuteronomy) appears in the video - speaking also about the racism he's experienced from management - and others such as Dan Hoy (Munkustrap) and Giovanni DiGabriele (Skimbleshanks) have spoken up loudly in support on social media.
Please signal boost and sign, even if you're not in the CATS fandom. This is a battle over a problem facing the whole of the music theatre industry in the US, and they need fan and audience support: the actors can't fight it alone.

Sea Dog The Newfoundland Hound
Sea Dog joined Cat Morgan's pirate crew as puppy, not much is known about his past before joining the crew only telling Cat Morgan he was a runt and that no one had any use for him. Cat Morgan assured him that he had use for him since Newfoundland hounds are the most useful dog to have on a ship.
Cat Morgan named him Sea Dog. The other cats in the crew weren't too happy about a dog joining even if he was still a puppy, but Cat Morgan told Sea Dog to pretended he thinks the cats are dogs and refer to them as such and it'll help ease the tension and the others will under estimate how smart he is.
Sea Dog is very loyal to Cat Morgan and Cat Morgan is protective of him, they have a brotherly like bond.
Sea Dog is a big friendly happy dog with no ill will towards cats or anyone else though he can be fierce when he needs to be. He loves to swim and has rescued cats who had fallen over board into the water and some people as well. When Cat Morgan retired Sea Dog went with him, he at first lived at the docks before being adopted by Ozma's humans and named Byron by them.
Ozma adores her 'bother-in-law' and Misto and the seven kittens love their 'Uncle' Sea Dog and he loves them all he often give kitten Misto rides on his back and pull the seven kittens in a little dog cart. Sea Dog has also been known to help Bustopher with a detective work and is an honorary member of the Pirate Guild of Cats in London.

So I‘v been thinking about a second name for Cat Morgan. Since He was based on a real cat named Morgan, Cat Morgan is probably what humans named him so what would he name himself?

😽 Plato- I have many different HC about him, but the mean one is he’s Jellylourm and Peter’s son , Electra, Etecterea, and Jemima are his younger sisters. He’s a protector in training, he look up to Munkustrap and Alonzo. Pouncival, Tumblebrutus, and George are his best friends. He idealizes Rum Tum Tugger and has a crush on him, Bombalurina, and Victoria.
🌕 Cassandra- She’s mates with Alonzo, is owned by a retired archaeologist and her human home is filled with many Egyptian antiquities. She has very slight magic abilities. She and Mistoffelees are very close as they share a love of the macabre and go exploring the city museums together at night.
💎 Rumpleteazer- She’s Mungojerries sister. Demeter and Macavity are her mother and father. She has a very complicated with both her parents, feeling like she’s a disappointment to her mother and wanting to prove herself to her father. She’s much more closer to her grandparents Jennyanydots, Skimbleshanks and Old Deuteronomy then she is with her parents. She slightly resents Munkustrap for trying to act like he’s her father and becoming mate with her mother even though she knows he’s a bettter cat then her father.
