Andrew Lloyd Webber's 'Cats' returns to the West End today for a limited run at the Palladium.

US singer and former 'X Factor' judge Nicole Scherzinger will make her West End stage debut in the role of Grizabella.

Based on TS Eliot’s 'Old Possum’s Book of Practical Cats', the musical first opened at the New London Theatre in 1981, where it played for 21 years.

The revamped version has been given a hip-hop flavour with the character of Rum Tum Tugger becoming a rapping street cat.

Missing cat found almost 500 miles from home

A cat who went missing from his home in Brockley turned up 450 miles away in Fife, Scotland after his owners had given up the search thinking he was dead.

The Daily Mail reports that nine-year-old Pablo was reunited with his owners when he turned up in a branch of TSB in the Scottish county and settled down for a nap on one of the chairs.

Staff handed him to a cats charity where he was checked for a microchip and his owners were found. How he made the epic journey remains a mystery, however.
