The word "Jellicle" first appears in "Old Possum's Book of Practical Cats" by T. S. Elliot, specifically the poem "The Song of the Jellicles". The name "Jellicle cat" is derived from an attempt by T.S. Eliot's infant niece to say "dear little cat"
Jellicle Cats come out to-night
Jellicle Cats come one come all:
The Jellicle Moon is shining bright -
Jellicles come to the Jellicle Ball.
