Old Kitty Friends at the State Hermitage Museum, St. Petersburg

Look familiar to you? The kitties are back, and this time they are part of an exhibition at the State Hermitage Museum in St. Petersburg, Russia, where every year in March, Mikhail Piotrovsky, the director of the museum organizes 'March Cat Day' in order to celebrate the museum's legendary cats, that make sure no mice infest the vast collections.
The exhibition is being held in the attic spaces above the state rooms inside the magnificient Winter Palace.
A recent friend of mine in Saint Petersburg suggested I send in some photos of cats, and voilà: a few days later Lilo and Stitch, the former 'Sunset-Park Kitties' (now known as the 'Forrest-Hills Kitties') hang printed and framed among other furry friends. It is an honor for me to have been a part of this fun event in such a historic place.

Lilo and Stich are a Scott & Will trademark.

And many thanks to Elena.

    I am Cedric, discoverer of things that would go unnoticed in the streets of Paris, historic haven of fashionistas and city of lights ('lights' as in 'enlightenment', not street lights).
    But seriously: I'm an expat from Luxembourg (the country, not the garden), living in the center of Paris (hence 'Paris 2nd arrondissement'), and currenlty studying architectural history...
