A very funny book depicting the sophisticated cat in different situations from simply being exceptional to choosing its favourite water (the toilet bowl!), its music appreciation, its hedonistic qualities, tripping abroad and many, many more.

There is even portrayals of Seurat's Cat, Le chat de Seurat, who is portrayed, unsurprisingly, in dots and Da Vinci's cat, Le chat de Leonardo, who watches one of her inventions trapping a mouse.

And at the end there is a version of The Mouseillaise and a not
Petit livre mignon. Especially enjoyable were the lessons on requesting toilet water and on addressing dogs. You never know when such things might come in handy.
Je suis dedans, et je veux sortir. Maintenant, je suis dehors, et je voudrais rentre.
Such an awesomely hilarious book! I love the illustrations, they're just sweet and sassy and cute enough to brighten my day every time I look at it.
quite comical. i wish it were about dogs, but i daresay the author rather detests dogs!
Hilarious and sparkling! A must-read for any Francophile friend of felines! :-)
