Thise are such terrific photos and there are sure lots of cute kitties!
Of course in France the cats surrender to the mice. I did really like the tiny beret.
This is almost an embarrassment of feline riches. What glorious photos!! As I type this, my oldest, Cecilia (pronounced à l'italienne), is sitting in front of the screen, purring away and trying to distract me from the competition. Oh well, she's pretty much allowed to do anything she wants. This month she turns 21 years old. We've been together since she was a kitten. The rest of the members of our cat ménagerie knows that she is the Queen of her Castle. My husband and I serve as butler and housekeeper, respectively. So delighted to have found you through Mariette. Cheers, M-T
Best. Post. Ever.
I don't normally associate Paris and cats. But these were beautiful and in so many cases, particularly sophisticated although the little girl looked as though she was going to squish to cat to death.
I really enjoyed these pictures! I was surprised to see old pictures of cats with leashes - I thought this was a modern thing. I wonder what is happening on this picture with all the black cats in a row? Some kind of cat show / exhibition?
beautiful pictures - i love them all :-)
First time seeing cats put on a leash. Are they having some kind of cats exhibition or competition? I think the one with the cap is really cute. Purrr.....
Oh wow, so many cute kitty images. I do not usually see kitties on leashes though, I guess it is good to keep them safe. The beret kitty is adorable.. Thank you for linking up and sharing your post. Have a happy weekend!
FANTASTIC POST Oh La La! I just love the third shot as he is obvioulsy a true Frenhman
Wow what great set of photos. I especially love the one where kitty and woofie are looking at something together. That is so cute :-)
What wonderful photos. I'd never seen cats being walking on leashes.
Awww. Enjoying every shot, especially the cat and dog in the balcony :)
There's just something so atmospheric about old black-and-white photos, isn't there?
We loved seeing this photos!
Such gorgeous photos. Best wishes with your book!
Amazing photos! Purrs xxAthena and Marie
Excellent series of black and white cat photos! Although it's in colour, I love the last one - so humorous.
Lovely, lovely images! Each one with such wonderful character...
GREAT B&W photography! Really incredible images! Loved so many of them! It would be impossible to list even a half a dozen favorites, they were all so good! Of course, the missing cat poster made me laugh. :-)
These photos are great! We love them all. We entered the contest and can't wait to read your book!
beautiful and charming photos! Thank you for sharing!
Beautiful collection of photos. Just lovely.
It's so pawsum to see so many black cats. They all sure look couture. MOLLuv ya'Dezi and Lexi
I love your photography! It's fantastic!
I would love to see a San Francisco version of this!
Fabulous post. I loved it. I'd like to follow you. I didn't see a button. Thanks for sharing these amazing shots.
Those are all such amazing photos!
Oh. My. George! These are amazing pictures of kitties in Paris!!! I definitely tweeted this post. I want others to stop by to check these out. You're wonderfully talented behind the camera and the places you visit....simply beautiful! Thanks for stopping by to visit my humble sARTurday creation. You're a peach!
I am impressed that the French cats have no problem being walked on a leash. The View from the Top of the Ladder
Love these photos!
Whoa! Authetic French cats! You think any of them would date me?

Great post and book but it would have been nice if you'd set up links for us to paste into facebook, G+ etc. When I tried to paste URL's it just went to your blog, not the book. I don't mind promoting, but I am not terribly computer literate so it would help to have links set up that we can then copy and place on the sites you ask for. I finally just gave up.
Vanessa, you have made my day! Thank you so much for sharing this series, I absolutely love every single photo here! :)
Absolutely adore this post, what beautiful, beautiful pictures! (Also love the art of Avalon on your book's cover, we wish you the very best!)
Wonderful shots!My old cat Max would tolerate a leash, but NOT if you were holding it. It had to be tied to something, else he was offended and would fight back.~
Those are brilliant.
What great photos, I enjoyed all of them. Thanks for sharing, have a great Sunday.
These are ALL such amazing photos!
What amazing pictures! I love Paris and I love cats more so I really love this post!!
What beautiful photos! We have a print of one of those (the kitty in the beret) on our wall. :)Something about Paris and cats ... they're a perfect combination!Congrats on your book!
Great photo array. Paris is gorgeous, but Paris with cats: magnifique!
We love Paris, we love cats...what more could one ask for?Thanks for all the great photos!Noodle and crew
Lovely photos <3 great captures especially the dog & cat by the window and cat strolling the art paintings. Golden Thanks for sharing. Golden Woofs
What lovely photos
Cat noir -- very nice.
Oh wow! very nice photos. did you take them yourself?
There are some real gems in there. A really epic cat post! Your book sounds awesome, too.
What great pictures! Mom has framed postcards from France with cats and a lovely book in French she bought there. The one picture of the cat on the roof reminds her of a hotel room and watching a cat walk all over the roofs and then go back in his house through the window. Only in France! Love Dolly
I have always wanted to visit Paris. Love the black and white photos. I have never seen so many cats on leashes! Love the little girl's huge smile and the cat with the hat on is too cute. :) Thanks for sharing!I have been hearing such awesome things about your book. I can't wait to read it!~Jess
So nice to see how my fellow kitty furiends live in other countries :)xoxo, Matilda

I love your blog! These are great photos; I especially like the dog and cat looking over the railing.

C'est beau les anciennes photos, en noir et blanc. Ca donne encore plus un effet retro.J'ai vécu longtemps à Paris et n'ai jamais rencontré de chats dans la rue.
Thanks for linking up! Sorry I missed yours. Lovely photos! x
I love visiting here. Thanks for all lovely photos.
You had me at cats in Paris, I love them both!!!The one that caught my eye was the cat sitting on the top of the clothes line!!!
We love your blog. Will find a way to make submission. Our humans find cats everywhere they go.Emma and Buster
That's an amazing collection of photos. The girl with the kitten is absolutely adorable. I also like the cat with his front paws up on the balcony railing.
As a worshipper of cats I loved this post. And have, and am looking forward to, Avalon.
First... I LOVE these pictures... The B&W ones really are amazing. I scrolled through three times!Second - CONGRATS on Avalon's book. I can't wait to read it!
Amazing collection of photos from the old Paris, thanks for the sharing.
Quel magnifique article !Ces photos sont très émouvantes.Quand de vois des photos anciennes comme cela, je me dis que sont-ils devenus ? Quelle a été leur destinée ? (que ce soit des humains et ou des animaux)
PS : j'ai eu un mal fou à mettre un commentaire, je ne comprenais rien au chapka image, on aurait dit une pub ... svp mettez nous des chiffres, c'est plus facile !
Such beautiful black kitties!
