On the rebound
Monsieur Chat, a.k.a. le Chat Perché, over the years has made himself known around the world. He's usually seen in death-defying and seemingly inaccessible as well as unauthorized places, just like any ordinary housecat. 

The series of grinning cats found in many cities in France and here and there over the globe, is the work of Franco-Swiss pop street artist Thoma Vuille, who started painting them in 1997 in Orléans. This bouncing cat is most easily seen from high atop the Promenade Plantée in the 12th arrondissement in Paris.

rebondir:  to rebound, to bounce, to bounce back, to rally; to get moving again, to suddenly be revived

être en train de remonter:  to be on the rebound (when speaking of the economy or business)
être sous le coup d'une déception amoureuse:  to be on the rebound (when speaking of a love relation)

  1. I've been browsing on-line more than three hours today, yet I never discovered any fascinating article like yours. It is lovely value enough for me. In my opinion, if all web owners and bloggers made excellent content material as you probably did, the internet will be a lot more useful than ever before.
