You’ve heard of the Cats musical? See my other post on that:

Jellicle is what the cats turn into when they’re more magical and special and they all have Jellicle names apart from their regular given names.

Of course, many significant Jellicle Cats are featured in poems describing them –

Many of the names used in the ensemble are pulled from the poem “The Naming of Cats” (https://catsmusical.fandom.com/wiki/Jellicle_Cats).

Our oldest cat is Goose. He’s 16 and sweet. He is a meticulous groomer on himself and his kitty-buddies. He will purr every time you pick him up, and you could never kiss Goose too much. His Jellicle name is: Gustopher P. Soft (the P is for purr).

Choco-Luv already has a lot of nicknames: CL, Stein, ick-scum buddy, ISB. She is 15 but you’d think she was 3 or 4 the way she acts. Very playful, active, cute, and independent. She wants to do as many “ups” (where she stands on her hind legs to rub her face on her hand) as she possibly can! Her Jellicle name is: GrizzleShanks.

Bison is 2 years old. He is sensitive and can be angsty. Bison has a big frame, and the softest medium black fur. He loves to snuggle to the point one of his nicknames is Snuggle-B. We also call him bear-cat because when he plays he sounds like one, and is ROUGH like one! His name is: Rambo-Brutus.

Angus is 8 months old. He’s an orange ball of sunshine and sweetness. Angus gets along with everyone in the household. He loves to eat and wants his food a million times a day, and tries to help everyone else finish their food too. Because of his bursts of energy we call him Cowboy-Ancho-Norris often. His Jellicle name is: Sun Tum Siracha.
