The French Cat features more than 150 full-color photographs of the felines who populate France’s cities and countryside.

One of the most successful animal photographers in the world today, Rachael McKenna (née Hale) turns her lens toward France—her adopted home—and the charismatic cats that inhabit this picturesque backdrop. The result is The French Cat, a stunning exploration of the country and its felines. Remarkable French landscapes, both urban and rural, are populated with cats brimming with personality—whether languidly strolling in a quaint village or regally perched on the doorstep of an elegant château. McKenna also tells the story of her life in France with her husband and baby in tow.

This heartwarming narrative—along with engaging quotes from famous French cat lovers and literary greats—accompanies the images, making the eclectic and lushly illustrated record of McKenna’s journey an all-around delight for Francophiles and cat lovers alike.

“A gorgeous love letter to her adopted country . . . these are evocative, beautifully composed landscapes and interiors that just happen to feature the small, inquisitive face of un petit chat.” —Publishers Weekly
