La Vie du Chat

Cats are king in Paris not just those little dogs you see everywhere...
Paris windows are full of chats/cats.
I need a lion armrest on my office chaise me thinks.
A cat purse pour toi?
Is this a rug for your cat?
Cats and bears are quite chummy in French kids books.
You do not see many cats in the Metro except in Posters...
Though I did see two otters or gerbils or some kind of furry creatures in the Metro last week. You tell me.
Is your cat requesting a holiday in Paris?
Or perhaps both your cat AND dog would like to take a trip. Sophie and Jack went to none other than Polly Porchen's Parlour?
Let me know PBers. There's still time before Xmas.

      I agree, pretty sure they are ferrets.

  2. your post on le chat (we brought my sweet girl with us from SF), anyway, I bought French monopoly for my sons for Christmas and guess what the new game piece is??? Mais oui, le chat! So now there is a chien and a chat. Needless to say, everyone in our household will be fighting over who gets to be the cat. =^..^=

  3. Ah for the life of a Parisian chat!

  4. That opening shot is quite a grabber!
    As long as I've been looking a photos of Paris, I never would have dreamt that cats were right up there with dogs in popularity. Your watercolors are great, BTW :) And, I think that the subway critters are ferrets - but one is pretty plump & otter looking.

    Haha! I think those gerbils might be

    Ferrets! I love your paintings

  7. Oooh love the cats, Carol! I actually saw the cat purse in Paris in October and didn't buy it. Now, I regret it! Love, Jamie

  8. Your awnings pop out so nicely!
    You would like my grandfather's dining room set that we have for your post..Lions heads..

  9. I do so love my Beaux in front of Ladurée! Merci, Carol!

  10. Hi there, the light tan is definitely a ferret ("furet") though ot so sure of the darker one, I'd dearly love a ferret. specially taking walkies, but doubt my whippet and Jack Russell would approve ~ they chase anything that moves, and then it doesn't move any more!! Poshepoche

  11. I love the cats. Love 'em -- but then you know that! Glad to see they are getting their due in Paris!

  12. Whatever they are, they look enough like rodents that I am amazed the dogs haven't gone for their throats. It truly must be the season of the lion and the lamb.

    Those weasely looking critters are ferrets. Some people keep them as house pets, like cats. They have to be de-scented, and they still are seriously slimey looking. They have been known to bit babies.

  14. Yes, I think they are ferrets.


Love hearing from you
