Is this where Andrew Lloyd Webber got the idea? At least Footlight Parade has the wit to be funny with it. The clip below is a montage of scenes demonstrating the conceptualisation, orchestration and choreography of the cat number.
…and then the cat number itself. Camp but not as cringy as the recent Tom Hooper film.

I prefer it also.
