Web-presentation: Paris in the Year of the Rat!

On March 11th, 2009, I presented Paris in the Year of the Rat at our Public Library. 45 enthusiastic attendees ooh-ed, ahh-ed,and laughed at all the right places, and left with a little more respect for our furry rodent companions. If you'd like to view the entire presentation, please visit and scroll down to the mini poster with the Eiffel Tower surrounded by rats. Enjoy!

Mom and I have returned from our Paris vacation and I am very happy to report that we saw a rat almost every day during our stay! Not live rats (I'm sure some of you are very relieved to read this!) but rats of many different forms and varieties. (Yes, even in the Louvre!) But this blogging isn't for me, please visit the website I put together with lots of photos at Enjoy!

Paris in Springtime!

Greetings! Bonjour!
As I will be travelling to Paris, France, this May, I thought to research my favorite critters before hopping onto the plane. Teddy bears, of course, and I searched for dolls too and... rats! And my oh my, there are LOTS of rats in Paris! 8 million of them, give or take a few! And so begins my Parisian odyssey to find all the "best" rats in Paris!
