After yesterday I needed a good laugh, so be prepared. Not just for French cat lovers. This made my day!


I have to admit I have a weakness for funny you tube videos. I can’t resist sharing them if I think other people will appreciate them.

Cat Secrets

The great French essayist Montaigne believed strongly that cats led secret lives and once asserted that “cats undoubtedly talk and reason among themselves.”

Le Chat Noir

Posted in Culture with tags , , , , , , on November 18, 2008 by Mj Rains


Le Chat Noir is the 19th Century cabaret in the bohemian Montemartre district of Paris.  It was opened on November 18, 1881 at 84 Boulevard Rouchechourart by the artist Rodolphe Salis, and closed in 1897 much to the disappointment of Picasso when he visited in 1900.

In its hey-day, Le Chat Noir was a bustling nightclub – part artist salon, part rowdy music hall, partially due to an illegal piano.  The cabaret published its own journal Le Chat Noir.  It was here that Salon of Incoherent Arts, the “shadow plays” and the comic monologues got their start.

Above is the famous Theophile Steinlen poster, Tournee du Chat Noir (1896)
