this is a fantastic poem, probably the best in 'possum's book of practical
cats' and was always my favourite as a kid (though no longer remember it
off by heart) - although I ended up calling my cat Bill Bailey from 'the
naming of cats' instead of macavity - because he wasn't ginger or tall and
thin! xx

My brother loved this poem so much, that we have a cat at home named
Macavity. He really is a trouble maker and "Mystery Cat"

The poem was a comment on the prevailing law and order in certain societies
of London and Eliot imbued it with a lot of sarcasm against the
establishment. If anyone knows more about it, post your opinion here and I
would come back to read it.
