Nice story, smokin! My hubby takes our two cats for a walk along the field at the back of our house every evening (without a leash, I might add). The route takes them past the horse paddock, where the horses come to look at them, sometimes the cats walk along the top of the fence. They then continue to the woods, where there is a picnic table. Hubby smokes a ciggie and the cats have a good old sniff around, then it's slowly back home. The whole walk is about 800 meters, cats are dog (cat!) tired afterwards!
Whereabouts in France are you?
