The stylish and refined Minette with her bonnet and muff make me think that perhaps she too is a Lady of the Ring.
I love her candlestick.
I'm beginning to think it's a stroke of genius to have Minette leave her family home due to a disagreement with her older sister over "a doll with the most appetizing little Mouse's head you could possibly imagine....You, the elder, so good as a rule, quite lost your temper and beat me, you wretch, until you drew blood...all my misfortunes arose from this slight cause...I was so humiliated by such unjust treatment."
I think the name "Madame Brisquet" is just perfect. Although Madame Bifstek is very appealing too.
Below is Pechy-Ly, "my rival was a singular creature, a Chinese Cat from the province of Pechy-Ly, who had only just arrived and already had all the Tom-Cats of Paris - those notorious gadabouts - running after her."
