Beware of Cat !

"Beware of Dog" signs are common the world over, but this was the first "Beware of Cat" sign that I'd ever seen anywhere. (Chat Méchant = Very Nasty Bad Humored Wickedly Evil Cat)

Spotted this sign in the medieval village of Perouges, near Lyon, France, the other day. . . judging from the chipped sign and blood stain it looked like indeed there had been some serious scraps there. . . I took my photo and moved on quickly. . . (il est vrai, il y avait un grognement assez terrifiant derrière la porte)

Le plus inquiétant en effet ce sont les signes extérieurs de violence. Déjà que je me méfiais des chats...

I love the blood stained print on it! adds to the fearsome cat's reputation.

What a cat it must be!
