The French Cat is an atmospheric exploration of France and its felines by one of the world’s most successful animal photographers, Rachael McKenna.

When Rachael embarked on a life in France, she explored world around her with her photographer’s lens. She captured remarkable French landscapes, both urban and rural, populated with cats brimming with personality…

…whether lounging in grand rooms of châteaux

…or weaving through their books.

Other French cats prefer quaint villages…

…or playing in gardens.

In The French Cat, Rachael also shares the heartwarming story of her young family’s move to France. Engaging quotes from famous French cat lovers and literary greats are woven through the book, making this eclectic and lushly illustrated record of Rachael’s journey through France an all-around delight for Francophiles and cat lovers alike.
