Rue Le Chat

The Devil Dog was intrigued by the cat head inscribed in wood at the top of a wooden beam overlooking what appears to be little more than a  narrow alley. Pulling back further reveals it as being the signpost signature of one of the famous sights in Troyes.

We had mentioned the Rue le Chat in the previous post, a narrow street so named for the numerous perches for feline creatures to sit in wait for the numerous pigeons that co-habitate in the eaves along the alleyway. As if to accentuate the point, during the day as we passed thru we saw numerous shredded feathers.

As you can see from the picture below it is not much to speak of, very narrow and a little scary, but all my feline friends say its a delicious spot to hang out.
