This week, in her "Dreaming of France" challenge, Paulita chose to feature some cats of Paris, inspired as she was by Virginia (Paris Through My Lens) and Genie (Paris and Beyond).
I thought I'd add to the mix. The sweet boy above was waiting for us at the top of the Abbesses Metro in Montmartre. At the time I visited, my sweet Marmalade Gypsy was home waiting for me, quite ill. I think this cat was a sign that Gypsy was hanging in there for my return.
This one above was in the Montmartre cemetery, sheltered from the rain.
If you take a closer look, you see a strong resemblance to Lizzie Cosette -- perhaps a sign that only five months from my visit, Gypsy would have passed and Lizzie had wiggled her way into my heart.
Of course you can't speak of cats in Paris without mentioning a little art. The above is one of my favorite paintings from Musee d'Orsay.
If you love France and have a photo, story, book or film to share, add your name to the list at Paulita's Dreaming of France space and find others who love this beautiful spot!
