Cat lovers may want to check this out. Maison Goyard has gifted a line of customizable pet accessories to Fa-raon, resident Birman feline at Le Bristol Paris, in honor of his third birthday. A trunk maker founded in 1853, Goyard has developed a range of pet accessories, including collars, leashes and other items, which can be bought at its store a few doors down from Le Bristol at 352 Rue Saint-Honore.

Fa-raon, which came from a French breeder, joined the hotel in 2010 when Didier Le Calvez, president and general manager, came aboard, deciding to add the cat’s touch to the hotel. Goyard is also sold in several Barneys and Bergdorf Goodman’s around the U.S.

Fa-raon, it is said, loves the hotel garden, welcoming guests, and staying in rooms with children when they ask for him. Check out the Goyard line at www.goyard.com, and the cat’s award-winning home at www.lebristolparis.com/eng/welcome
