It’s not every day that you see a cat fishing. Or a man holding an umbrella for the cat to keep it out of the rain! Keep reading to find out where this street art is located.
Paris is a city that’s very enjoyable to walk around. There are lots of little shops to look at and small streets to explore. In a lot of ways it has a similar feel to walking around the older neighborhoods in Washington DC. It becomes even more apparent when you know that the design of Paris had an influence on the design and layout of Washington DC. If you want to know more about this you can read the book, Paris on the Potomac.
While in Paris last year with my then girlfriend (wife now), we took the subway one night to Notre Dame. After walking around and seeing the church we started wandering the nearby neighborhood. The classic narrow curvy streets lined with Parisian restaurants that you see in movies. We came to an extremely narrow street with the art work shown here painted on the wall. The street is the Rue du Chat-qui-Pêche and is the narrowest street in Paris. The street is 95 feet long but only 5.9 feet wide the entire way!
You can read about the story of the painting on the Urban Ghosts – Forgotten Places & Urban Curiosities website.
