We met this rather noble looking cat on our holiday in Grasse, the perfume capital of the world.
He was sitting calmly outside an artist's studio...
Now, I have heard of struggling artists,
but this begging cat (see the begging bowl with coins in front of him where it was written: 'Pour Manger') takes the concept in a different direction
Judging by the excellent condition of his fur and his splendid collar I don't think he was exactly 'struggling'...
Perhaps he wasn't even the artist!
