Authors and their Cats: Jean Cocteau

Happy Caturday! For today's "Authors and their Cats", here's a photo of French poet, novelist, and filmmaker (as well as playwright, designer, and artist) Jean Cocteau and his cat. Cocteau is most famous for his novel Les Enfants terribles (The Holy Terrors) and his films, including Blood of a Poet, Beauty and the Beast, and Orpheus

Cocteau was additionally a cat devotee who helped to found a club in Paris called the “Cat Friends Club” that had a membership pin and sponsored cat shows. 

Here's the Cat Friends Club membership pin designed by Jean Cocteau. I'd love to have one of these.
