Who was Cassandra?

  • In the Iliad, she is described as the loveliest of the daughters of Priam (King of Troy), and gifted with prophecy. The god Apollo loved her, but she spurned him. As a punishment, he decreed that no one would ever believe her. So when she told her fellow Trojans that the Greeks were hiding inside the wooden horse...well, you know what happened.

Yes it would work in French, but I'd suggest saying "blanc" instead of "blanche", which is feminine (since all the other adjectives are masculine).

Pauvres chats :(

Beautiful, in both of its forms.

I hope someone finds the poor beastie.

Thanks, Martine! I'll fix it...

Rachel -- yes, me too -- but it's not just one, it's many. Many posters, many lost kitties! I was going to put other photos too, but this one seemed the most poignant.

Cats with notions of freedom. These are the real heartbreakers.

Even lost cat posters have a special poignancy in French. I do hope they find their kitty.

"Perdu. Chat d'Espagne. Mais nous ne sommes pas en Espagne..."
