CatsCafeGIFA big Parisian Bonjour to everybody!

So, last Friday, my Friend Val’s (who is a journalist for kids) and I went to an insolite place in Paris: the Cat’s Café. We arrived the day before the Grand Opening, but Margaux, the founder, was super nice and treated us like two Aristocat Duchesses.

Once arrived in this special café in le Marais, we met the lucky new tenants of the place: Crookshanks, Marguerite, Oreo and 9 of their feline buddies. It has been a few days since these 12 mischevious cats live here, with their owner Margaux Gandelon, who started the project. Inspired by the “Neko bars” in Japan (Neko means cat), she created this café where you can enjoy delicious organic treats while a cat is quietly sleeping on your laps or playing with your feet. True fact: it has been scientifically proved that a purring cat is relaxing. It is called the purring therapy! So, the cat’s café is a kind of spa-relaxing place both for the mouth and spirit. Wonderful isn’t it?

Though, while hanging out with the cats, it is important to respect some rules. “Clients have to wash their hands before petting the cats, explains Margaux. It is also forbidden to lift them, to wake them up, to feed them or to let them climb on tables”. Easy and obvious rules that won’t prevent you from enjoying a cosy moment with cats. We also noticed that it was easier to bond with the other clients of the café talking about cats and laughing about their capers.

Cats come from 3 shelters. “We chose them according to their ability to socialize, says Margaux. We needed them to get used to the place and to the clients. In the café, we have a place were they can hide and rest if they want to be quiet. And if we notice one cat has difficulties adapting, or if he becomes aggressive, we will find a host family for him where he will be happy”.

Anyways, if you are a cat-lover we recommend you to go spend a relaxing moment in this cosy café. Don’t forget to reserve, the place is really attractive!

I am unemployed

Pole Emploi1I don’t say: “I am looking for a f*** job!”

I say: “I am a project Manager for Pôle Emploi”                                                                (Pôle Emploi is France’s employment agency)


Last time I was in this state is when I overplayed World of Warcraft! But I am motivated, and Pôle Emploi is my friend. Any young graduates in the audience?

Bye Seattle, Hello Paris!

Bye Seattle

I was not excited for this day to come, but here we are: I am leaving Seattle after one wonderful year. It is such a beautiful city, with the sea, the lakes, the mountains, a paradize for all hipsters with a bohemian spirit. And I am not even mentionning the vintage shops with Prada & Chanel bags and pumps for $20! For a first American experience, I could not expect better! I am sad because I tried my best to stay, but no one can fight the severe US immigration laws. Though I am sure a big part of my life is there now, and I know I will go back to Seattle sooner than later.

Anyways, this is a new page in the book of my life : I am back to France, and happy to meet again my friends, the French baguette and the stinky cheese. John is with me, we hope he will get a “Carte de Séjour” and be able to stay and work. We always think of the romantic side to be a Franco-American couple, and it is! But when it comes to living in the same country, that’s another story! But for now, I am focusing on finding a new job, and this is exciting!

Bonjour Paris

Pink Flamingo toppers – Free Printable

Welcome to las vegas Hello hello, welcome to fabulous Las Vegas!

As you can guess: I just came back from Las Vegas, and it was sparkly and excessive, in other words: totally awesome. To honor the famous “Flamingo hotel”, one of the first to settle on the Las Vegas “Strip”, I want to offer you these flamingo toppers to print. You just need to print them on sticker paper, cut them carefully and put them on a stick.

I added a few pictures of the trip. I did an international star caprice to adopt a pink flamingo from the tropical garden but the hotel staff called security.

If you want to adopt a flamingo and be a rebel, share, like, tweet and comment this article!

All the gossips are on Facebook at ClemmoAroundTheWorld!
