Foto Friday: Crowded with Cats

Scroll down to content

Foto-Friday, every Friday a new picture!


I try to be a little bit stealthy when I’m out taking pictures


For the things I usually shoot..


…it’s usually better not to disturb the scene


But in this particular instance…


…it was unusual to find that I was the one being observed


So we got a picture that (from me, on this website at least) is a little unusual


Crowded with Cats

    Jellicle Cats come out to-night,
    Jellicle Cats come one come all:
    The Jellicle Moon is shining bright—
    Jellicles come to the Jellicle Ball.

    Jellicle Cats are black and white,
    Jellicle Cats are rather small;
    Jellicle Cats are merry and bright,
    And pleasant to hear when they caterwaul.
    Jellicle Cats have cheerful faces,
    Jellicle Cats have bright black eyes;
    They like to practise their airs and graces
    And wait for the Jellicle Moon to rise.

    Jellicle Cats develop slowly,
    Jellicle Cats are not too big;
    Jellicle Cats are roly-poly,
    They know how to dance a gavotte and a jig.
    Until the Jellicle Moon appears
    They make their toilette and take their repose:
    Jellicles wash behind their ears,
    Jellicles dry between their toes.

    Jellicle Cats are white and black,
    Jellicle Cats are of moderate size;
    Jellicles jump like a jumping-jack,
    Jellicle Cats have moonlit eyes.
    They’re quiet enough in the morning hours,
    They’re quiet enough in the afternoon,
    Reserving their terpsichorean powers
    To dance by the light of the Jellicle Moon.

    Jellicle Cats are black and white,
    Jellicle Cats (as I said) are small;
    If it happens to be a stormy night
    They will practise a caper or two in the hall.
    If it happens the sun is shining bright
    You would say they had nothing to do at all:
    They are resting and saving themselves to be right
    For the Jellicle Moon and the Jellicle Ball.

    [ T. S. Eliot
    Old Possum’s Book of Practical Cats]



      1. Well,
        poem is a strong word, I’d say verse.

        ( I find the book a delightful, lighthearted and serious collection of verse and poetry. If you happen not to know it, you’ll find it at – but without Nicolas Bentley’s fine illustations, some at:
        Faber & Faber probably have it in print with these.)

        And I’m not rising to the bait of whether your photo is a little snap, 🙂 , anyway it’s a good cat photo – and these cats might just *be* Jellicles…


      2. Thank you 😊

        The cats were curious about me, and they were further intrigued by the whirring noise an M9 makes!

        So it was quite easy to keep their attention!

        They soon ran off when I went for in for a stroke though!
