'Cats' Musical Wiki

Bombalurina is a featured character in the 2019 Cats movie. She is portrayed by Taylor Swift.

Powerful and beautiful, Bombalurina is Macavity's partner in crime. She loves to be the center of attention and puts all the other cats in a trance using her catnip.

The character's role in the movie bears little resemblance to the stage version, save for singing "Macavity: The Mystery Cat". Instead, the movie version of Bombalurina is a villain who works with Macavity. She does however retain her usual confidence and sensuality.


[Bombalurina's] just this really manipulative sociopath cat.
— Taylor Swift[1]
