Le chat noir

Black cat Versailles prés aux bois
While walking around Prés aux Bois neighbourhood which VDP has been showing you over the last couple of days, she came across this fellow... 

En se promenant dans le quartier Prés aux bois que VDP vous montre depuis deux jours, elle a fait une rencontre...

Now the problem with this area is that it isn't located only in Versailles but also in the neighbouring city of Viroflay. The two cities are so close that VDP can't tell them apart!

Le problème de ce quartier, c'est qu'il est commun aux villes de Versailles et de Viroflay, si proches ici qu'il est difficile de savoir dans laquelle des deux communes se situent les maisons !

More of a silhouette than a cat. :-)

Chat noir, mauvais présage? I hope not!

I love those colorful shutters.

This neighborhood has loads of charm. I would wander around there.

(I spotted the balloon couple walking across the plaza with the photographer who was going to pose and shoot them . . . I took a few exploratory photos, then when they got to the place where their photographer wanted them, I rattled off 5 or 6 fast ones.)

That is one handsome kitty!

Apparently people dont want black cats and Cat Rescues have difficulties re homing them.

Be careful or the CDP police will catch you outside your city! Of course, my definition of my town is everywhere I can reach by bike! As you will see this week (I hope).

I'm a big backer of black cats. I had one called Saskia.

That is exactly the way it is here. You don't know when you left one city and entered the other unless you look for the signs and then those are only on the main roads.

Is it bad luck to have a black cat cross your path?

Some people here think so. They also believe the earth is flat.

Property lines are movable and flexible. But if you have to go into another city to use your kitchen, it could definitely be confusing.

si tu ne sais pas où tu es : c'est la faute au chat noir

Looks like they want to make sure you to know you've crossed the boundary.
