Presumably a younger version of Gus the Theatre Cat, and a general chorus cat. In most productions, the actor playing Gus acts as Asparagus until Gus' song, and then resumes the part of Asparagus after his song is over. However, in the 1998 film Gus and Asparagus were played by different actors, as Sir John Mills, who played Gus, was old and could not have performed the dance sections. This has led to some theorizing that Gus and Asparagus are not the same cat at all, but rather that Asparagus is Gus' son or younger brother. Asparagus is possibly mates with Jellylorum or Jennyanydots.
