One way to make sure you don't miss dinner...
Give French cats the choice between a bowl of tap water and a bowl of Evian, and they'll inevitably choose Evian. Cachemire, silk, camel hair? These cats recognize quality right away and will curl up on the best fabrics in a second. But I never dreamed they knew anything about stainless steel cookware until I discovered Pompon, a.k.a. Guy l'Eclair and sometimes called Yo-Yo, nesting in my best French Cristel marmite.

soie:  silk
cashmere:  cachemire
poil de chameau:  camel hair  
inox:  stainless steel
marmite:  stock pot

Une truite dans la marmite vaut plus que deux saumons dans la rivière.  A trout in the pot is worth more than two salmon in the river.

  1. Classic, and if there's a choice, your kitty will ALWAYS curl up on the pile of laundry where her or his fur will clash most.

  2. Nice post! Keep it up the good work.

  3. This is incredible judging for things you have po0sted in here I realize these cats are really smart because that can choose and identify when something is fine or not, by the way that cat is so beautiful.

  4. Heya just came upon your blog via Yahoo after I entered in, "Blogger: A French Education" or perhaps something similar (can't quite remember exactly). Anyhow, I'm delighted I found it simply because your subject material is exactly what I'm looking for (writing a college paper) and I hope you don't mind if I collect some information from here and I will of course credit you as the source. Thank you.
