One way to make sure you don't miss dinner...
Give French cats the choice between a bowl of tap water and a bowl of Evian, and they'll inevitably choose Evian. Cachemire, silk, camel hair? These cats recognize quality right away and will curl up on the best fabrics in a second. But I never dreamed they knew anything about stainless steel cookware until I discovered Pompon, a.k.a. Guy l'Eclair and sometimes called Yo-Yo, nesting in my best French Cristel marmite.
poil de chameau: camel hair
inox: stainless steel
marmite: stock pot
Une truite dans la marmite vaut plus que deux saumons dans la rivière. A trout in the pot is worth more than two salmon in the river.
