Once upon a time, in a forgotten corner of eastern France, surrounded by deep forests, peaceful waters and tiny little old fashioned villages, les Poissonchats took up their lodging in a sleepy old cottage that eyes a river to the south and a narrow village street to the north.

Their friends, curious to know what a Poissonchat’s life is like in such a forlorn spot, were shown shaky cell phone pictures from time to time when les Poissonchats decided to embrace the 21th century and tell their tale on a proper blog (with less shaky pictures hopefully). They are going to charm you each month with a new story to lift you over to their enchanted lands.
