* WhatCouldHaveBeen: Originally planned (and marketed) as ''Mr Eliot's Book of Jellicle Cats and Pollicle Dogs as [[LiteraryAgentHypothesis Recounted to Him]] by the Man in White Spats'', with a storyline running through the poems that would end with Jellicles, Pollicles and Man in White Spats all ascending to the Heaviside layer, before Eliot apparently decided mixing cat poems and dog poems was a mistake (although the Pollicles still get a mention in one poem). Some elements of this would be used as the plot of ''Cats''.

A collection of cat poems written by Creator/TSEliot. They were largely written for his godchildren, and are thus rather more whimsical and cheerful than his more famous poetry. Nonetheless, it does contain Eliot's gift for allusions and sharp observations. The first edition, published by Faber and Faber, also featured his own illustrations. Other versions included illustrations by EdwardGorey.

Eliot's poems describe a number of curious and most singular cats, all of whom encompass common (if exaggerated) aspects of feline behaviour. Unlike its more famous adaptation, the musical ''{{Cats}}'', the poems have little connection with one another, and there is no overarching storyline.
