Puss in Boot, and other furry friends

One of the things I love about travelling, or just in general really, is coming across a four legged (or two legged!) friend and my latest trip to France was no exception.

Got Bread? Geneva

Perhaps one of the most amusing encounters was with the cat who ruled lived with the couple that ran the B&B we stayed at in Rousillon.  No sooner had we arrived and unloaded the car, then Le Chat decided to inspect our boot.  Luckily for her, I saw her just before I was about to lock the car, otherwise we may have had one cooked kitty on our hands.

So in honour of that curious cat, here are a few other furred and feathered friends whose company I enjoyed on my last trip.  Please free to share your favourites!

  1. Thanks for visiting my blog “Eyes to Heart” and liking my post “Self-Indulgence …” I appreciate the feedback. … Your images in this post are lovely. In fact, the black kitty and the white and orange kitty resemble the two I lost this year. And I’ve always been partial to swans. … Thanks for sharing … Be well, Dorothy 🙂


  2. No sparrows or squirrels? ( or did that pheasant just get away? ) we always think of you when we have an animal encounter on holiday! Your blog is wonderful Olivia.
