This Would Never Happen in the USA! March 9, 2008

Posted by gordonwatts in life, Marseille.

IMG_1251My sister is here visiting me in Marseille for 18 hours. We went to a couscous restaurant. My sister sat down first and I pulled out my chair, which was next to hers. It was unusually heavy — because there was a very large cat sleeping on it (a cat of unusual size — as opposed to a rodent of unusual size). The cat, a bit annoyed that I’d disturbed him, got up and walked onto Viv’s lap – and there he stayed for the whole dinner.

He did get a bit of couscous in his fur, but didn’t seem to mind too much. 🙂

My old girlfriend’s book store in Seattle, Twice Sold Tales is awash in cats, with aerial ramps that allow them to walk from the top of one book case to the next.

As with your case, the cats are so accustomed to random human interaction that they are quite tame. And if you carry a meal from the Dick’s across the street, some of them will come beg fries.
