Pack Up the Cats is an album by the alternative rock band Local H. It was released on September 1, 1998, on Island Records, around the time when Polygram, the parent label of Island, merged with Universal, causing the album to be all but forgotten during the transition. This would be their last album released on Island before they split from the label, as well as the last album with original drummer Joe Daniels.[3] It was ranked #20 on Spin's 20 best albums of 1998.[4]
