Oh what fun you all are having! We agree...on top of the Eiffel Tower is waaaaay too high!

Jan's Funny Farm said...

Oooh, that's kinda high, isn't it! Looks like you're enjoying this trip immensely. Have fun!

Sassy Kat said...

Oh the gargoyle, I don't think that it looks like me at all. And talk about feeling superior being so high up over all of the small humans on the ground, wow! That was neat.
You guys sure are making this retirement a big deal. If I had known that I would have been taken to Paris I would have retired sooner.
Thanks again.

We know that cats are reputed to always land on their feet, but we are SUPER glad no one fell and tested that premise from the top of the Eiffel Tower. We were pressing inward and gripping with our paws as we looked at you all so high up!

Moma said to say that the last time she was at the Notre Dame, it had just been raining! Seeing as how cats are reputed to not like water ... we are happy that the weather was perfect for your visit. (We have to say, though, that that gargoyle gave us the creeps.)

And ... the Les Deux Magots? Maybe you'll see the spirits of Camus or Picasso or Hemingway or Jean-Paul Satre! What an amazing place to gather and eat!!!

Enjoying your visit, with you,
Jake and Fergi xxoo

Now each time I see a gargoyle I shall remember this one. There are plenty of gargoyles where I am, but none as dear to my heart as this one.

Joe Stains said...

Mango said...

I didn't even know this place existed until Asta sent me. I can't believe all that you cats are up to. I also never knew that cats were such snappy dressers. Sheesh. All the ones in Master Chew Sits are nekked.

Maybe you need to come to the US and educate them.

Is Asta like an honorary cat maybe?

Slobbers,

Doesn't anyone know that Wires get along great with cats? If we don't, nobody told me cuz I grew up with my sis Echo, even let her give me baths. Anyway, congrats on your retirement Sassy!

Ruis said...

Yes, the Eiffel Tower is waaaaay too high. I was afraid for my breakfast to come out so I didn't look down.
And it was funny and a little scary at the same time to see that gargoyle on the Notre Dame. The day before Mona Sassy and now this....

What a wonderful and exciting trip!
