Macavity, Macavity, the mystery cat. The only cat that can disappear and reappear any time.
Mangy and alone (except his henchmen) he rules the crime life.
Macavity is be based on the villain James Moriarty in the Sherlock Holmes stories written by Arthur Conan Doyle.
T.S. Eliot wrote the poem "Macavity the Mystery Cat". He admits to basing his Macavity on Doyle's Professor Moriarty.
And Andrew Lloyd Webber's Cats the Musical included Macavity, of course.
