Tantomile is a character in Andrew Lloyd Webber's Cats. She is one of the mystical twins.


Tantomile's costume generally matches Coricopat's. Their costumes are striped and hatched to suggest tabby markings, but they also echo the clouded moon featured on the set. Tantomile is usually portrayed as a young adult or adult, depending on the performance.


Tantomile is believed to be a psychic, along with Coricopat, commonly believed to be her twin. They are often the first to realize things, such as the approach of Old Deuteronomy or Grizabella. She is genuinely believed to be mysterious and quiet, staying mostly with Coricopat, and Cassandra or Exotica, as well. As with almost all the other females, she has a crush on the rum tum tugger. But although her twin does not like to socialize she is always moving arround in the social pack.


"Strong dancer with good ballet training"

Tantomile has a fairly small role but is flexible and in a lot of the dances; she shares most of her lines with Coricopat, with the exception of her line in "Jellicle song for Jellicle Cats" (at least in the film). she also try to touch Grizabella, but accept her back into the tribe and wave goodbye to her when she was going to the Heavisde layer to be reborn.
