Meeting a fox and a purple cat

In the Jardins du Ranelagh, I met a slender and graceful fox.
At the feet of poet Jean de La Fontaine, whose fables are peopled by animals, the lovely creature showed no interest in the little kids bustling around him.

A little while later, on the sidewalk I ran into a purple cat... Benjy was not impressed.

Hello kitty! I just showed Lucy and she thought it was so cute. She's drawing bunnies on our chalk board right now.

I love foxes,around my parents home used to be foxes and a woman feeded them every noon, it was wanderful.

JILL - I'd love to see little Lucy's creations, she's such a true artist!

KARINA - que increible, como me hubiera gustado ver los zorros cerca de la casa de tus padres. Me encantan tanto los animales! Ademas los zorros son criatures divinas, tan hermosas, con ojos preciosos.

this is really sweet..i wonder who did the purple cat.

Mary-Laure said...

MARIE - yes it's a very lovely garden in the 16th arrondissement, right next to the Marmottan Museum. There's always lots of children, which I love.

PIA - Benjy adores green spaces, but he cares more for other dogs than any creatures...

The fox (renard?) is wonderful.

I happen to agree with Benjy about the purple cat. He has very refined taste in art.

I saw similar cats... only the ones I saw were in a car... they were Hello Kitty slipcovers for carseat in BRIGHT pink... I even snapped a photo of them too... maybe I will pst them someday or I'll email them over.

A place for encounters! I'm pretty sure you also met ponies and puppets (Gignol).

Mary-Laure said...

TANGOBABY - yes, fox is definitely RENARD in French.
And indeed, Benjy has impeccable taste in art.

FIFI - I'd like to see those Hello Kitty slipcovers...

What dog would be impressed with Hello Kitty? ;) It's a great drawing, though.
