List Rules Vote up the 'Cats' cats you would make your very own.

Let’s pretend for a moment that the fictional felines dancing through the famous Broadway show Cats are real cats. Who would you want to adopt?

The cats of the wildly popular musical may seem otherworldly, but let’s imagine they are kitties like the one you grew up with, or the fuzzball currently napping atop your dirty laundry. Each of these Cats musical characters has its own distinct story, look, and personality. So who's it going to be?
