I love cats and I'm a lover of all things French.
Mary Lee Scalf
Although it may seem pricy for a book with cat photos - after all, you can see cats on the Internet any time you like - this book is WELL worth it.
Lifetime Book Lover
It would make a lovely coffee table book or a great gift.

Although it may seem pricy for a book with cat photos - after all, you can see cats on the Internet any time you like - this book is WELL worth it. The photos are magical - and it's the kind of book that you can sit down with at the end of a stressful day and it's almost like a form of meditation. Brew a cup of your favorite tea - or pour a glass of wine, put on soothing music, and slowly page through this book. Ahhhhh...

And it's MUCH cheaper than therapy! Strongly recommend it!

I can't think of anyone who loves cats who wouldn't treasure this book, and if they love cats and France, so much the better. The photos are sensitive, subtle and exquisite, and there are many quotes, familiar and unfamiliar, from French writers on the virtue of cats. As for placing the exact locations, does it matter? The cobblestone streets, winding alleys, open windows and ledges could be in any village and be equally charming: the focus is the light, the mystery and the cats: street cats, pampered cats, cats in cemeteries and ancient libraries, playful kittens and wise old cats. I'd like to give this as a gift to every cat lover I know.

What a lovely book, ah to be a cat in Paris. I decided to buy this book for a friend for Christmas and realized that I should have one as well. It is beautifully done with wonderful quotes about cats. My friend said that she and all of her sisters enjoyed seeing this wonderful book. Enjoy!

Since I am a Francophile and cat lover, I am enjoying The French Cat very much. However, half the pages are printed so faintly, they are difficult to read without a bright light or magnifying glass, and I have good eyes! A little more ink would have made a difference. C'est la vie!

This is a must have coffee table book for any cat or France lover. The photographs are full colour and take you into the French world as if you are there. The cats are captivating and scenery as well. I adore this book and continue to take it out for a "read" -- ok, a "look". The author includes cute stories to go along with each picture, too. Readers get a behind the scenes look at why the picture was shot and what was happening at the time. Puuurfect!

This charming volume combines intimate photographs of nature's most glorious animal framed by elegant and rustic French interiors or the countryside. The text is frequently amusing and, combined with the wonderful photographs, makes this a book to which one will return often and always come away smiling.

This book is a feast for the senses which wisks you away to a world of beauty and calm. Cat lovers and Francophiles alike will find this work an homage to both.
