In the age of cell phones, it’s not a pleasant thing to walk in the street. … Cats are very easy to keep because they’re so clean, And Choupette is the most beautiful cat in the world. … It’s always difficult to analyze an influence. Perhaps she helped me to become a nicer person. Because there’s something very touching about her.”
