One difference between France and the United States, from my observations, is that French humans tend to have drapes on their windows, while in America, I saw a lot of blinds.
In any case, what the humans do not realize is that when drapes or blinds are closed, it’s like humans wanting to watch TV while the TV is still in its box: we can’t see anything!
My human learned the hard way with her drapes back in France…
Yes, that’s me who did that =^.^=
And of course, I also had to find a solution for blinds when we were in New York! But guess what? She didn’t like my solution! The nerve!
For those of you whose humans are not too young, your humans might have had a Monchhichi (in French, we pronounced it Monkeykey) monkey doll when they were kids.
My human had one and since she wasn’t playing with it anymore because, she said, she was already an adult when I adopted her, she gave it to me. It seems strange to me that she would stop playing with it because it’s a fun toy and I loved it.
Did you or your human have a Monchhichi?
Thank you all so very much for coming to Milou’s pawty on Monday! Milou was very touched to see you all at his purrthday. I hope you had a good time, for we sure did!
The humans came back home with some more gifts for Milou: a nip mousie, that was not super successful so far (of course, Milou prefers my magic carrot!), and a wand toy with birdie and peacock feathers (my human wasn’t able to get any picture for this one).
As mentioned before, Milou has a special diet and it is extremely rare that the humans would give him anything else for fear it would cause him health problems. But for his purrthday, he was treated with one of my Almo Nature wet food of chicken and shrimps that he devoured in less than 2 minutes… and he didn’t leave any crumb behind. Kitshka checked.

And then Milou went back to his favorite activity:
In other news, have you heard that a cat cafe is opening in Paris, France? My human and I are very excited about it, as you can guess!
These past few months, my human has had the opportunity to take pictures of several beautiful murals that represent cats. What better mural than a mural with one or several kitties on it?
She first saw a couple of them, completely by chance, in New York (that I will feature next week), then she looked for more. She found out that there was one huge and gorgeous in Paris in France, in my place of birth! But of course she was not in Paris, neither could she do the trip at the time. So I asked my human’s Mom if she would agree to go take a picture of it. She kindly agreed!
Here it is! Thank you so very much to Janina.
The mural is in the 13th arrondissement of Paris, at the corner of boulevard Vincent Auriol and rue Nationale. The artist is C215.
