Tybalt is Prince of Cats, and Gower (Pericles) has a cat with eyes like 
burning coal crouching waiting at midnight for the mice to come out to 
play.  The 'working' title for my sub-thesis on reproductive anxieties 
in Shakespeare was 'The role and function of the Tawny Abyssinian in 
Shakespeare: a multi-disciplinary approach', thus acknowledging the 
contributions made to the project by my unruly Abys.  Has anyone ever 
seen a Norton after an Abyssinian kitten has finished playing with it?

Cheers,
Judi

"Malkin" seems to be a standard name for cats associated with 
witchcraft. Such a cat is named in both Macbeth and in Tho. Middleton's 
The Witch.
