Mistoffelees and victoria by madhatta51-d2vgwjv

Mistoria (also known as Victorffelees) is the fandom pairing of Mistoffelees and Victoria.

Mistoffelees and Victoria share many similarities that suggest they may make a well-matched pair; they are often the two most prominent classical dancers in the cast, and both are usually portrayed as elegant, graceful cats. They usually share a short dance interlude during "The Invitation to the Jellicle Ball" and in a few productions, they dance the pas de deux in the "Jellicle Ball" (known to fans as the "mating dance"). In the Cats Movie 2019, Mistoffelees has an incredibly canonical crush on Victoria and is seen consistently trying to get her attention.
