A pretty tuxedo cat relaxing on the steps in Villefranche-sur-Mer, France.

Wow ! That Villefranche-sur-Mer looks like s/he could be a long-lost (with an accent) sibling of my new Middlemarch kitty!

Today I, as I was driving down a country lane, I was surprised to see this handsome chap staring through the fence.

Judging from the look of this seagull swimming around the waterways of Stockholm, I think he had too much white wine with the fish

You're right - they do look similar! Perhaps your cat comes from a line of noble French felines?

When I was on vacation in Europe last year I'd try to take a picture of a cat whenever I saw one, so I have several pics of European cats; however, this French cat was the prettiest of them all!

Not a very good picture but one I just had to share. This is ClaraSue saying "don't touch me again or you'll lose that hand". No, she wouldn't do that, we were just playing and that's her mean look.

Oh. My. God! There are Middlemarches everywhere! Such good looking cats, too. My version of one is humbled looking at all his 'kin' here, indeed. Suddenly he's not so *special*, after all! Well, so I say. He has a different story about it, it seems. His tuxedo is the only one that matters. He's totally firm on the issue. And won't let anyone soon forget it, either ....

Cats are big fun, aren't they ?

Some of you may remember Kasey, the sweet but emotionally muddled old girl I took in back in December 2007. She knew so much, yet maintained barriers I could never understand. She frequently made faces much like ClaraSue's above, but unlike ClaraSue, Kasey wasn't kidding. She died in May, after quietly becoming a treasured friend. This picture is from the day she learned that if she jumped on the table, she could keep an eye on what her human pals were doing around the yard. She was so smugly proud of her feat!
