The Beenhouwersstraat (Rue des Bouchers) and Kleine Beenhouwersstraat (Petite Rue des Bouchers) are the most crowded streets of Brussels. They are lined with colorful restaurants that attract mainly tourists... and cats. You won't see the kitties each time you pass, but they are definitely there, waiting patiently for the next pot of mussels to arrive. This mom and her kitten were hiding from the rain under the tables of the restaurant Le jardin de l'ilot sacré.
For more pictures of these cats (and Brussels), go to Exploring Brussels with a Horror Writer on Road Tripping Europe.
When in Brussels, make sure to also visit the cat of the restaurant Le Vieux Bruxelles and the cat of Mokafé in the streets surrounding Le Jardin de l'îlot Sacré.
