Best Answer

Tybalt the Cat was a well known character in the popular medieval of Reynard the Fox in Shakespeare's time. That particular character (Tybalt the Cat) was vicious and argued a lot. This is very much like Tybalt in Romeo and Juliet; Tybalt is a hot-headed character who argues with most of the characters and never hesitates to draw his weapon. Tybalt may have been named so because he was very much like Tybalt the Cat and it gave the audience an idea of who he was. Almost like a stereotype, so the character has guidlenes to his personality and actions. stealthy, sly and swift moving - a skilled swordsman/fighter

What does mercutio mean when he says to Tybalt you ratcatcher will you walk?

Tybalt 's nickname is 'Prince of Cats', so he is firstly referring to this. However, Mercutio also insults Tybalt's name, because it sounds like 'Tibbles'. Tibbles is a popular name for a cat (a rat-catcher.) He also calls him a cat in a derogatory term. Cat sounds remarkably like Cazzo in Italian. Romeo and Juliet is set in Italy. Cazzo means the male genitalia. its pronounced "CAT-so". <-(by adrienne) At the time Romeo And Juliet was written there was a popular story named ' reynard the fox' in which the cat was called 'Tibalt'. Mercutio uses this story to tease Tybalt with and continues to refer to Tybalt as a cat, therefore 'ratcatcher' <-(thesilenceRHIAN)
