What's with the cat on the roof in Romeo and Juiliet?

Asked by simone54 (7616points) October 25th, 2008

In any carnation of Romeo and Juliet I’ve seen, at the beginning they show a cat chilling on a roof of a house. What’s with that?

Simone: You are not thinking of the play “Cat on a Hot Tin Roof,” by Tennessee Williams?

If not, are you talking about the carnation, which is a flower, or a production of Romeo and Juliet? I don’t remember any symbolism about cats, myself.
