1. Mademoiselle Coco Chanel
Imagine the Parisian walkways, where everything is full of life, with the sounds of accordion and light rhythm of French chanson, and a romantic evening in the art quarter where I – Coco Chanel – am the star. I'm not The One who smelled of beautiful Chanel N°5 and enjoyed the creativity of fashion, but the other, also unique Coco Chanel. The Coco Chanel and I have something in common, and that's (except the name) top elegancy; always there and always ecstatic. In short, I'm Coco Chanel, the real lady among the cats and the master of entertainment among the artists. Elegantly steady, well educated, fun, and always friendly.

2. Paris, Paris
How did I get to Paris? Well, I'm not in Paris, but I adore it and I love daydreaming about it. There's nothing wrong with that, right? Big parks in Paris are so full of life! Oh… How would my FB friend squirrel Sue and I enjoy it there… I love avenues with beautiful trees on which birds and handsome, elegant tomcats are taking a break. I wish that I could go there at least once and take a break in the paws of a tomcat, a famous artists of a wonderful voice, neat nails and combed hair.

3. Love and art
Two most beautiful things in the world! As Anatole François – the French writer once said: “In art as in love, instinct is enough”. My cat instinct is telling me that I should write about love so I'd become a real artist. I'm thinking about the initial words of my work day and night, and I'll think of the title later because I'm still not sure in which direction will my inexhaustible and unpredictable inspiration go. Current inspiration will help me decide if that will be a novel or poetry, maybe even haiku. Brief and clear form, for example: “Love is…”. Is there anything to say or to explain? Well, of course not. It's all loud and clear! Love is love!

4. Keeping a physical shape
As I'm keeping in mental shape, by thinking of my big works and going to Paris, I'm keeping in physical shape, too. It takes a lot of effort to keep in the perfect shape like this, because you can just imagine how many sweet things are eaten by this mouth and chewed by these beautiful, white teeth. My mom had to try really hard for a great figure, by climbing on the roofs, walking on the walls and trees, hunting mice and lizards. Times changed for us. I'm enjoying all the luxury of modern civilization – armchair, bed, armchair, bed, then workout on a treadmill. And voilà – 9 calories less! A perfect day! 🙂

5. Social life
Before I go to Paris, the city of haute couture and sophisticated culture, the city that totally matches my character and life goals; I have to admit that my social life here is pretty good. But I'm an artist, and artists should always go after something more sublime and perfect! Ah! My family is very satisfying family. Mrs. Mom (my hooman mom) takes a really good care of me and mon ami Oscar, Oscar the Great! Or like Parisians say – Oscar le Grand! He's trying to be polite and have good manners, but… someone is born with elegancy, and someone has a life-long bad hair day. He's adorable… but with messy hair!

6. Oscar wanna go with me
Polisson! He's ready and waiting for departure to the City of Lights. He's fascinated by my stories about wide avenues, fish that swim in La Seine, comfortable benches on which you can sleep your whole life… He's so adorable and really nice, but his hair is still messy, so I won't be taking a walk with him down the Champs-Élysées, and I definitely won't be going to Versailles, Louvre or Moulin Rouge. Oh, Paris, Paris! So many beautiful things can happen in that city! And Montmartre! Oh la la! It's an artists' paradise! Narrow, romantic streets are charming, especially at sunset! Even if you've never been in love, you'd immediately fall in love with this place where great artists used to create: Salvador Dali, Claude Monet, Pablo Picasso, Vincent van Gogh… Have you ever heard of “The Black Cat” (“Le Chat Noir”) cabaret on Montmartre? You'll hear more about it some other time, maybe some black cat from Animal's Look could tell you something about that place. I'm more interested in the fact that many famous people spent their time in there, and I'll be one of them! Coco Chanel, la chat célèbre!

7. Eiffel Tower
I know why Oscar is looking forward to our trip to Paris. First of all, he simply can't live without me. The second reason is that he wants to get on top of the Eiffel Tower so much, that he wouldn't be able to wait for the elevator and he'd go by paws, up the stairs. He's impressed by the tower's height, and he only saw it in a picture. Maybe he would be dissappointed when he'd go all the way up and wouldn't see his home? Maybe he'd try really hard to find it, so he'd stay up for an eternity? Oh, yes! Knowing Oscar, he'd be hungry and he'd look for a butcher insted of his house.

8. Oscar studies the map of Paris
I had to point out to Oscar that Eiffel Tower isn't the only amazing place in Paris. I also told him that he should get informed about history, culture, famous people, museums, etc. so his trip would be more interesting and he would have more information on where he's going. It's not nice if you go somewhere and don't know anything about that place, those animals, parks, streets and trees. That's the reason he's now exploring the map of Paris with mommy. They're having a great time and they'll keep having fun for a while, because Paris is a big city; there are many things one should see, and many cats that are waiting to get to know me!

9. Sink ideal for two cats
I told you Oscar is silly but he really knows how to snuggle! Easy Oscar, mom have already combed me!

10. Help Oscar
Oscar is very perky and impatient, because he can't wait for our voyage. He found out that Arc de Triomphe is in Paris, so he's looking forward to seeing it and going under it. But Oscar has a problem that he can't solve alone – he should decide which picture he's going to put in the passport. I tried to help him, but I really can't decide – his hair is messy on both of them! I've warned him that maybe they won't let them get on the plain with hair like that, but he just told me that I'm overreacting, just like any other woman and artist! Help him if you can, but I don't want to participate in that.

11. Always ready for Paris
I'm ready! I'm waiting… Yes, I said “waiting”! I'm really impatient, too! Parisian restaurants and cafés are waiting for me, I'm surely coming! Wait for me, Parisian birds! Wait for me, wide avenues because I'll walk down you with style and unbelievably good manners of a pleasant cat, famous Coco! Wait for me, Parisian boys, crazy nights are waiting for us! Do I have to mention that I have been planning this voyage for my whole life? And finally, Paris is mine! We just have to road up! I'm ready! I'm waiting!

12. He is sleeping!
Speaking of Oskar's trip to Paris… I said that I don't want to take him with me – he's always sleepy and messy! I'm always telling him: “You'll oversleep your whole life!”, but he doesn't hear me. I'll have to go alone! Alone and… lonely. Alone and… without my Oscar. Hm! Maybe he isn't perfect, but he's mine and I love him just the way he is! I'm sorry Paris, but if I have to choose between you and my Oscar, I'll choose Oscar. “Forget Paris” – well, maybe in the movie, but don't worry you Parisian beauties and Animal's Look's fans – Coco Chanel is always there for you! “Paris Can Wait” is my choice! Maybe it will wait for a while, but Coco is always up for French cuisine, chanson, romance, “Midnight in Paris”, l'amour! And about Oscar – he's really great, actually… So – call him, girls! 🙂

13. Coco & Oscar wish you all the best!
Together with friendly greetings for our fans, I'm sending our latest photos, and I hope that we'll keep being friends in the future, too. Despite the fact that Oscar's still taking a nap, I'm sure he loves you so much! And about Paris – he's mine and I'm its! Love is love, right? Best regards! Love, Coco.
