When you walk along the right bank of the river Seine in Paris, you'll come across the pet store Oisellerie du Pont Neuf. At first sight, Oisellerie du Pont Neuf looks like a “normal” pet store. You can buy all sorts of pet supplies, as well as puppies, cats, birds, fish, etc. However, the four main employees are... cats.
Carlita is the feline employee in charge of the first cash register.
Raoul watches over the second cash register.
Sarco was “hired” to test the comfort level of the cat houses and beds.
And, Frimousse, makes sure no one steals any fish.
The first feline employees arrived at Oisellerie du Pont Neuf about eight years ago. Then came the younger ones. The pet supply store is their home now, though the cats sometimes go out to have a leisurely stroll along the Seine.
Oisellerie du Pont Neuf is situated on 18 Quai de la Mégisserie in Paris. The nearest metro station is Pont Neuf.
The shop is open every day between 10 am and 7 pm (Sundays included).
