Cat Circus So what if the Belieber Nation is taking over town? Everybody knows there's nothing like a guitar-playing cat, a skateboarding cat and a cat acrobat to showcase true talent. Samantha Martin's talented feline troupe is, amazingly, just your run-of-the-mill tabbies and such. Still, they've wowed the world via YouTube and are playing to sellout crowds in Old City. Note: Yesterday's planned visit to Philly was cancelled because of tour bus troubles. They should never have let the Siamese drive.

The latest shaggy dog story from Walt Disney Pictures has a twist. It's really about a cat. "Oliver & Company," an animated feature that opened Friday, even was inspired by a twist: Charles Dickens' "Oliver Twist. " This time around, the story of the waifish, orphaned Oliver is told in animal terms. Supplying the voice of Oliver the kitten is Joey Lawrence, best known as the orphan he portrayed on the TV sitcom "Gimme a Break!" Lawrence's stint with co-star Nell Carter lasted four years.

Tenisher Walker, 12 (with cap) and Catora Jones might have been thinking the stuffed animal that Dana Walker was carrying yesterday on West Brandywine Street was the cat's meow. At any rate, it was a fine day to provide a ride to a tiger and today's weather should be similar - no sweat if one should want to walk a tiger.

Marjorie Joy Nemarow Katz, 70, of Cherry Hill, philanthropist and wife of Lewis Katz, one of the owners of The Inquirer, died Friday, Dec. 20, at a New York hospital from complications of a stroke. Mrs. Katz was a perpetual learner who took courses all of her adult life. But she will be best remembered for her acts of personal generosity. "It wasn't about writing checks," her daughter Melissa Katz Silver said. "She gave her time, and she gave her love. " Mrs. Katz grew up in Vineland and graduated in 1961 from Vineland High, where she was president of the Elvis Presley fan club.

The thing about stoner comedy is that, well, it helps to be stoned. If you go to the theater in a state of mind that is not a mix of giddiness and dumbstruck awe, your senses pulsing with epiphanic waves of major Whoa!'s, then the whole thing's going to be really, really lame and embarrassing. And then, of course, there's always the chance that even if you are stoned, it's going to seem lame and embarrassing. That, I wager, is the case with Super Troopers. A ganja-cloud comedy about a gang of highway patrol officers stationed in a tiny Vermont burg who spend more time toking reefer than ticketing speeders, this dubious product of a college-spawned (Colgate U.)

When people speak of Jonathan, 6, they use the words "lovable" and "beautiful. " Not just his looks but also his spirit. He attends special classes for children who are on a severely mentally retarded level and plays at school with joyful enthusiasm. He'll color in a coloring book, make motor noises with small cars, clap his hands to music, stack blocks, string beads to make a necklace, do five-piece wooden puzzles, and pretend to cook in the toy kitchen. His social worker says that he is expected to reach the intellectual level of a 7- to 8-year-old.

ELISABETH Kubler-Ross has her five stages of grief. Tattle has our eight stages of being a starlet: Canoodling. Breaking up. Busted. Pregnant. Dieting. Marrying. Divorcing. Dying. Follow a female celebrity through the gossip mags long enough and she invariably hits almost all of the eight. With the trends now being pregnancy and weight loss, nearly all the big names have been covered either for being big around the middle - Julia, Jennifer and Nicole all have been photographed sporting "bumps" - or bony everywhere.

Accordionists, naturally. Also cloggers, contortionists, dulcimer players and leprechauns. Then there's the pizza gourmet with piano, the pipe-smoking dog and the one and only Helmut Kokey, Eastern Michigan's foremost lederhosen- clad yodeler. When it comes to entertainment in and around the Motor City, the Marce Haney Agency has booked them all. "We cover from A to Z in show biz," says Haney, a 27-year veteran of the booking wars. "Whatever you want, we can get it. " Yet with all the amazing talent she has encountered over the years, Haney has never, ever seen anything like Rose Lokey and Katrina, the talking cat. "This animal does talk," the agent says.

BACK WHEN Tattle worked at the Daily Pennsylvanian we used to joke about the way we would milk a story for a week. The first day, print the story. The second day, print reaction to the story. Day three, run the reaction to the reaction. Day four, someone appalled by the reaction to the reaction. And day five, some cooler head trying to bring both sides together - or further reaction to reaction to reaction. The Hollywood press machine does the whole cycle all by itself (see Pitt, Brad and Jolie, Angelina)

Sandy Zowney did not own a cat until she retired in 1993, but yesterday she was hoping to fall in love, all over again. "I had to put two cats to sleep within the last eight months," Zowney said. "I really miss cats. " Zowney, 69, a retired secretary from Torresdale, was at the Philadelphia Animal Welfare Society on Hunting Park Avenue near Second Street. It was the last weekend for a July 18 through Aug. 1 event in which all cats are offered for adoption for a dollar rather than the normal $25. When the event was first held, over five days in June of last year, "we did 576 adoptions [until]

If you make something as mundane as cat food, what do you do to get attention? If you are Meow Mix, you create your own reality show with 10 down-on-their-luck feline contestants from 10 U.S. cities, including Philadelphia. Then you try to find a human to share in the reflected fame. The cats, which will come from shelters or rescue groups, will live in a house designed just for them in New York City with Today-showlike windows. Beginning June 6, they will star in an Internet show where cameras will catch them playing, snoozing and, with luck, lustily eating Meow Mix. Ultimately, edited footage will be used for 10 3- to 5-minute commercials that will run between TV programs or for a 30-minute cable TV show, said Keith Fernbach, public relations director for Grand Central Marketing, which is helping produce the show.

John Dunn spends early Friday evening in what would appear to be a rather envious position to many high school boys - watching his school's cheerleaders practice their routines before the game. But there are a few key signs that indicate this Collingswood senior isn't just hanging out to ogle before the big game against Audubon on this Friday evening. He's wearing big, floppy navy-blue paws over his sneakers. A plush blue suit is draped across the rolled-up wrestling mat he's sitting on. And next to him rests a Disney-style panther mask.

That lazy, lasagna-loving, tubby tabby familiar from the funny pages gets a new leash on life courtesy of Bill Murray. Because Mr. Misanthrope supplies the voice of the fat cat, Garfield: The Movie, based on the title of the Jim Davis comic strip, is mildly amusing. One could say the same about gallows humor. In tones embroidered with entitlement and laced with contempt for other creatures, His Cattiness occasionally diverts the audience from this misbegotten affair that places a computer-generated feline among live-action actors and animals.

AS WE TAKE a break from all the nuttiness in the world, here's a chance to catch up on the latest nuttiness involving Spike Lee. Rush & Molloy in the New York Daily News report that Lee is in the midst of a cat fight with United Action for Animals president Gary Kaskel. The pair met recently at a New York Film Festival party. Spike told Kaskel he was allergic to cats and that he hated them. "Just because you're allergic doesn't mean you should hate them," Kaskel replied.

SOME DAYS, pet lovers, Tattle writes itself. For those of you who think TV is going to the dogs, think again. It's going to the cats. Already starved to fill its programming niche for females, Oxygen Network (Oprah Winfrey's brainchild available locally only on DirecTV) is branching out to felines with "Meow TV," developed by the Meow Mix Co. The half-hour program debuts tonight at 6:30 and it's the first show targeted at cats. That's right, cats. The show was developed after Meow Mix research showed that one-third of cats enjoy watching TV. (Actually, in Tattle's experience, three-thirds of cats enjoy sitting on the TV.)
