“Oh, well I never, was there ever
A cat so clever as magical
Mr. Mistoffelees.”
Old Possum’s Book of Practical Cats

While it is true that in T.S Eliot’s Old Possum’s Book of Practical Cats, Mr. Mistoffelees is identified as being, “…quiet and small, he is black, from the ears to the tip of his tail,” and this cat appears to be the exact opposite, it seems they each share a talent for premonition.

You can’t pull one over on this cat, for sure.  With his ever keen eye and sharp focus, no matter how tricky one tries to be, he has the uncanny ability to be able to find the ball.  Is it magic?  It is mystical? Does this cat have x-ray vision? You decide.
