Yes, courtiers loved their pets. Wasn't it the royal aunts who had numerous pets? :? I think we all like to romanticize Versailles, but when reads some of the accounts, it must have had it's share of unpleastantries. All the grand appartments brimming with commoners and aristocrats, gaurds, the smell, the heat in summer, and the freezing temperatures in winter. I think I read an account where foreign visitrs commented on how dirty Versailles was; imagine all the upkeep. No wonder M.A. wanted to escape to Petit Trianon! :D

(This really belongs on a different topic! sorry.)
