shopwindow cat in Douvres (Normandy)

White-legged shopwindow cat in DouvresI spotted that white legged shopwindow cat in Douvres (not Dover, but its Normandy equivalent, Douvres la Délivrande, near Caen). This little town is mostly famous for its art nouveau pharmacy and its beautiful church but what caught my eye on that Easter day when we were taking a stroll over there is a cat who was merely basking in the sunshine behind a weird shopwindow in the high-street. the shop itself was a bit weird and I am not sure what they were selling in there.

Corner Cat

The owner was apparently an excentric English gentleman, for at least he spoke French with an accent. Maybe it was a shop where they sold cats and where you could pick you next pet from the window?  This reminds me of another cat – dubbed corner cat – which I had spotted in Tunisia, perched on top of a small local building.

I made a postcard of that corner cat  by the way, together with 7 other pictures (the pack of 8 postcards with 8 different pictures on them costs only 5€)
