Aristocats Movie Night

It’s our #movienightfriday and we are in a cat mode with these adorable hip kitties. We just had to watch the movie with our own sweet lovable cat, Gryffindor, well one of our 3 cats.

Aristocats is set in 1910 Paris, France. So we explored more of French culture, as many of the Disney movies are set in France.
