Fantastic.

A cat sings in French. And it is hilarious, cute, and touching. All at the same time.

*shrug* Yes, the subtitles helped. But words like "oh la la" and "comme ci comme ca" hardly need translating, right? :)

(I didn't study French after junior high, but heck, I still remember those) ;)

I don't know "comme ci comme ca".

The "oh la la" was very common slang to when you see something beautiful.

Ah. "Comme ci, comme ca" just means "So-so". :) "Oh, la la" is simply an expression of surprise or delight, similar to "Oh my!" or "Well, dog my cats!" ;)

I love how she translates "Comme ci, comme ca" as "meh". :)

"Le drapeau American". Some of the few words I still remember from junior high french.
