We stayed in Montmartre instead of Central Paris this time and it was the best. On our first day we ventured out to Montmartre Cemetery. The cemetery is beautiful and is situated below the city so it is really peaceful and quiet. The stonework is just amazing. Maria, my fellow traveler, took tons of great photos and of course I don't have them yet so you are stuck with what little I did take.
No sooner had we started our way through the cemetery when we ran into the friendliest man who was feeding a large cat colony that lives in the cemetery. I do volunteer work with cat rescue groups and help out with trap-neuter-return (TNR) so it was such a surprise to find a like-minded cat purrson in Paris. He took us to one of his stations to see the kitty but the cat was no where to be seen.
One of the Montmartre cats waiting for his meals-on-wheels! Yes, the caregiver did have a cart with all of his care items available so he could easily go from station to station.
We also got to meet a very special cat named Minute who lived right around the corner from our hotel. As we ventured out each day we would see this big orange kitty curled up on a motorcycle sleeping the day away in front of a little grocery.
