Haricot Blanc - A study against orange and the cat who didn't "sat on the mat"

Bonjour, Haricot Blanc, le blogging French cat here.

I thought I would share with you a few photos taken of me recently as the sun streamed in through the window and I rolled around on the mat.

At not even four months old, it's hard to keep still, and taking photos can be more than a little difficult.

Of course the easiest time to take a snap is when I'm dozing, or just waking up.

And the best shots (IMHO) are those where the background provides a glorious contrast to the colour of my coat.

Here's a selection I've called "A study against orange" and "The cat who didn't 'sat on the mat'".

Enjoy, and let me know what you think.

A bientôt.

Haricot B.

Is this my best angle?


  1. You are a very photogenic kitty. No doubt you'll be immortalised on canvas soon.

    You look very happy, and a happy and kind home is the best thing for any anipal.


  2. Your pix are just beautiful, as usual. We love the ones with the light shining through your delicate pink ears giving them a glistening pale orange color. In the last pic you look long and lean and very sophisticated.
    How are you feeling dear one? Did you get your test results yet? You look just perfect.
    Our love to you.
