Cats from Paris {France}

Paris isn't really a city of cats, not compared to Istanbul or Molyvos where you bump into dozens of felines wherever you go.

And yet, when you look close enough, Parisian cats are everywhere. Rarely in the streets or near the monuments, even though, when you're lucky, you can spot a cat on the gravestones at the cemeteries of Montmartre and Père Lachaise.

The cats of Paris live in cafés, restaurants, bookstores, shops, and hotels, reigning over the world from atop a counter.

But once in a while, you'll find a cat on the streets, mainly in the company of a beggar.

The cat in the first picture was photographed at the Place de l'Opéra in Paris. 

You can spot the cat in the pictures below, Dennis, near the entrance of the metro station Alexandre Dumas.
