How do I set up a date with an escort from the Felines agency ?

At the agency we prefer to receive requests that are quite clear, exact and precise, coming from gentlemen who show respect. To allow us to provide a quality service, we would appreciate receiving the following information to begin with :

  1. Your real last name and first name (just your first name will suffice for the first contact).
  2. Your email address and a telephone number where we can reach you discreetly (you may specify the appropriate times).
  3. The date (or approximate dates) for the meeting.
  4. How long it should last.
  5. The country, city and location (minimum 4* hotel or high class private home).
  6. Your choice of Feline, a list of those preferred or, as appropriate, a description of your kind of woman.
    To help you to choose the right hostess, kindly use our escort selector.
  7. An honest description of yourself (age, height, look, where you are from, languages spoken, kind of job, etc.).
  8. The sort of services you expect.

This information will only be used in order to meet your requirements in the most appropriate way, and will never be revealed to third parties (see our "Privacy Statement").

In which city or country may I meet or invite an escort of the agency ?

Although we strictly adhere to relevant Swiss law and also apply a code of professional ethics to providing companionship services, not all countries recognise the legality of our activity. It is, for example, absolutely impossible to meet a Feline on French soil.

You are therefore entirely responsible for ensuring that our services are permitted in the country where you wish to meet a hostess from our agency. With regard to this, kindly refer to Art. 8 of our Terms & Conditions.

This having been said, any city and country with good international connections and a high quality hotel infrastructure is acceptable, for example (non exhaustive list):

  • SWITZERLAND : Geneva, Lausanne, Montreux, Zurich, Basel, Bern, Luzern, Gstaad, St-Moritz, Davos, Lugano, Ascona, ...
  • GERMANY : Frankfurt, Munich, Stuttgart, Köln, Hamburg, Berlin, ...
  • NETHERLANDS : Amsterdam, Rotterdam, Den Hague, ...
  • BELGIUM : Brussels, Liege, Bruges, ...
  • SPAIN : Barcelona, Madrid, Marbella, Ibiza, Canarian Islands, ...
  • PORTUGAL : Lisbon, Porto, Madeira, ...
  • GREAT BRITAIN : London, Birmingham, Edinburgh, ...
  • IRELAND : Dublin
  • LUXEMBOURG
  • MONACO : Monte Carlo
  • AUSTRIA : Vienna, ...
  • HUNGARY : Budapest
  • SLOVAKIA : Bratislava
  • DENMARK : Copenhagen
  • GREECE : Athens, Greek islands, ...
  • ASIA : Tokyo, Hong Kong, Singapore, ...
  • AUSTRALIA : Sydney, ...
  • WORLD : Marakkech, Dubai, Mauritius, Seychelles, Maldives, Brazil, the Carribean, Pacific islands, America, Moscow, ...

In which city or country does the Feline I chose actually live ?

Kindly use our escort selector to find your hostess according to her country and city of residence.

Given its international vocation, our agency works with occasional escorts from various countries (mainly in Europe). The heading Origin on a Feline's profile doesn't necessarily correspond to her country of residence, but rather where she was born. On the other hand, under Minimum booking, we often mention the city where the companion in question is based, or the closest city for a relatively short date. If it is marked 12h, it means this hostess is only available for a minimum of one night.

Felines who are based in Paris only accept dates abroad for one night or more (no dates on French soil!), or for a minimum of 4h in Brussels.

How far in advance should I contact the agency to arrange a date with a Feline ?

As we only have occasional escorts at our agency, we do need to ask them on a case-by-case basis. It is therefore preferable to contact us a few days before to arrange the date, and in some cases maybe even a few weeks. If you are looking for a same day date, you will need to contact us by telephone before 8pm at the latest (5pm on Saturdays).

I am just passing through and don't have a hotel. May I meet a Feline at her place or at the agency ?

No, sorry. The Felines® agency only organises dates at your hotel (of high standing) or your private home. Contrary to numerous other agencies we do NOT handle incall dates, having neither a bachelor flat nor reception rooms available. High class escorts always go out for their dates, they never receive their clients: OUTCALL only please!

Can I have a date with a Feline during the day ?

Our agency works mainly with occasional hostesses, so you will appreciate they often hold regular jobs or are students. For this reason it is usually difficult for us to arrange dates during the day. It is preferable to plan a date for the evening, normally from 8pm onwards, or to tell us well in advance so we can guarantee the daytime availability of the Feline you choose.

How can I be sure that the Feline I chose is the one who will really come ?

Contrary to certain unreliable agencies, Felines® never uses misleading or fake photos. Such practices would obviously tarnish our image, and our agency would rapidly lose its renown.

In order to be quite sure the Felines correspond to their profile, the agency management meets all candidates personally before putting their profiles on line. You are therefore guaranteed that the Felines agency hostesses really are the ones described on our website.

The escort I chose isn't suitable. May I cancel the date on her arrival ?

Given the very strict selection criteria for our agency hostesses and the considerable lengths we go to in order to ensure that the escorts and our clients are "compatible", this situation almost never comes up. The photos on our website, the photos of your hostess's face we send by email and her description always being accurate, you are highly unlikely to be disappointed.

Nonetheless it could happen on very rare occasions that you wish to send back the Feline who came. In this case you are free to do so, but only during the first 10 minutes and by informing the agency and reimbursing your hostess with at least EUR 100.-, or her effective travel costs plus accommodation if necessary. Kindly refer to Art. 6 of our Terms & Conditions for details.

If during the date I realise that my hostess and I just don't get on, what can I do ?

Since a good date with an escort is above all a question of how you both feel about each other, it is possible that such situations arise, but fortunately only on rare occasions. Should this be the case, don't hesitate to talk to you hostess about it and call the agency to terminate the date. You will only be asked to pay for the time actually spent with your escort (prorata) plus travel costs, unless you advise otherwise.

Please note that the Felines agency companions, being entirely free and under no duress whatsoever, may also decide to terminate the date if they don't think it is going well. Kindly refer to Art. 6, paragraph 2, of our Terms & Conditions.

Fees, advance payments, credit cards

How are the fees paid ?

The most courteous way of paying is to discreetly hand over the agreed sum at the beginning of the date to your hostess, and please, without her having to ask you!

There can be no question of negotiating the rate when the hostess you chose comes; this is very bad form for a gentleman and will not be appreciated. Although we strive to establish a climate of confidence with our clients, it is possible that the hostess wishes to check the sum; please don't take offence.

Can I pay in a currency other than EURO ?

We prefer the Euro, but Swiss Francs, Pounds Sterling and US Dollars are also accepted. Please be so kind as to avoid using large denomination bank notes (as far as possible, no EUR 500.- or CHF 1000.- bank notes). Should you wish to pay in a currency other than Euro, kindly give the agency some advance warning so that we can quote you the exact sum depending on the exchange rate of the day.

The Rates page of our website is updated every day at 15:15 (Swiss time) and there are sometimes significant fluctuations in exchange rates. Prices shown in CHF, USD and GBP on our Rates page are calculated based on the average European Central Bank rates (+ 2% exchange rate commission).

May I pay by credit card ? How ? Is it discreet ?

We accept leading credit cards (AMEX preferred, VISA and MASTERCARD), but only for dates for which advance payment is required, for dates lasting longer (more than 12h) or for dates confirmed in advance. Once your card has been debited, it does in fact take a certain time for the appropriate body to transfer the sum to us. This is why we are unable to accept credit card payment for the full sum payable on the same day as the date itself.

AMEX cards are debited in Swiss Francs (CHF) at the exchange rate of the day. VISA and MASTERCARD are debited in Euros (EUR). For credit card payments a commission of 6% is charged.

For your own security and to validate credit card transactions, we will need to ask you for the following information (preferably by fax or telephone, since emails do not represent a secure means of communication) :

  1. Your credit card number
  2. Expiry date
  3. The CVV2 code (for AMEX the first 4 digits on the front side, for VISA and MASTERCARD the last 3 digits on the reverse)
  4. The name of the cardholder AS IT IS SHOWN ON THE CARD

Should you not yet be one of the agency customers, a debit agreement by fax will be necessary, including the following: the exact authorised sum, the currency of the debit transfer, the address of the cardholder, his date of birth, the same signature as that shown on the credit card and a legible photocopy of both sides of your card. For large sums, a copy of your ID may also be requested. This information will never be disclosed to third parties, except on the request of the Swiss direct debit organisation "Swisscard AECS" for AMEX, "SIX Multipay" for VISA and MASTERCARD, and only for checking. Our Privacy Policy protects you from any disclosure or indiscretion.

Full discretion is exercised when debiting your card and the particulars on your credit card statement will never show the word "Felines" or any other indication relevant to an escort agency.

Under what circumstances is advance payment required ?

If you wish to meet an agency escort abroad or further than 100km from her domicile, a deposit will in principle be payable in advance, as well as the cost of any airline tickets. Once this advance payment has been received, we can confirm your date.

The advance payment can be made by international bank transfer or by credit card (+ 6% commission).

May I pay by bank transfer ? How ?

No problem at all! Advances or full payments can be made by SWIFT international bank transfers to our bank account in Switzerland. Do please note that your date will only be confirmed once the sum has been credited to our account, and that this can take 2-5 business days after you have given the order. Kindly contact us for our bank account details.

May I make an advance payment by Western Union ?

We prefer payment by credit card or bank transfer. Western Union is very rarely accepted, and only for cases when any other mode of payment is quite impossible.

What guarantees do you offer in the case of advanced payment being made ?

The Felines® agency is owned and managed by a serious Swiss company, duly registered in Geneva as a Limited Liability Company (LLC = SARL in Switzerland). Like any capitalised company, we are obliged to respect strict accounting rules set forth by law ("Swiss Code des Obligations"). Once your advance has been received, it is held in our books and we are obliged to offer you the service you ordered in return. But apart from that, a dishonest agency would forfeit all credibility among its customers and rapidly have to close down!

If I need to cancel a date, do you reimburse my advance payment ?

No, but we retain your advance payment against a future date during the next 12 months at most, giving you much enough time to reschedule your booking.

The Felines

How to find my dream escort ?

Use our interactive escort search engine and find your dream hostess in just a few seconds. Our search engine allows you to set various criteria for the escort your are looking for, in real time: her age, her height, her hair colour, the colour of her eyes, her bust measurement, the language she speaks and the fee category. Once you have made your selections, all you have to do is click on the profile of your choice of escort for more details.

Why do most of the Felines hide their faces ?

Our agency only works with occasional escorts who also have private and professional lives they wish to preserve. For this reason, most of the Felines prefer their faces to be hidden.

Can I have photos of the Felines' faces ?

Yes, this is possible, though only for serious and focused requests. We never send pictures of the faces of all the Felines, but just those of some of them according to the prior selection you have made from our website. Certain Felines retain the right to ask through us for proof of your identity, before any photos showing their faces are sent out.

Do Felines accept dates with a couple ?

It all depends on the hostess. Most of them enjoy the company of women and of couples, others are truly "bisexual", while some remain only heterosexual. Kindly note that a date with a couple (whether your partner is your wife, your girlfriend or an escort from another agency) involves a surcharge 20% on the rate for the Feline you choose.

Can I have a date with several Felines together ?

Yes, provided the Felines chosen will enjoy it. In this case, each escort applies her rate depending on how long the date lasts. There isn't a group rate ;-)

Do the Felines work with your agency on an exclusive basis ?

All the Felines commit in writing to work only with our agency for this activity. However, if despite this exclusivity clause you found one of the agency escorts on another website, please inform us so we can take the necessary steps. Unfortunately it is possible that unserious agencies copy the pictures from our website (despite our Copyright) or that certain Felines do not respect their commitments (that's fairly rare).

Trust labels

What is a third party trust label ?

Given the millions of websites on the internet, and the many thousands of scams in operation, it is no easy task to know whom to trust. This is especially true for numerous escort agencies where you don't know who you are talking to and it is difficult to build up a relationship of trust. As far as we know our agency is the first to offer a solution to the problem by obtaining third party accreditation.

In addition to the information available on our website, the Felines® agency is inspected and accredited by two independent companies, GeoTrust and ValidatedSite which give you the guarantee that our agency indeed exists and that it respects strict norms for ensuring your personal privacy.

What does the label "Verified by GeoTrust" stand for ?

GeoTrust® is a recognised and respected SSL certification authority, and one of the worldwide leaders in the field. The True Site® programme is at the leading edge in services for identifying and confirming the legitimacy of internet websites. Its "Smart Seal" patented technology is installed on our website pages, automatically identifying the site as genuine and validated by an independent third party.

When you click on the Verified by GeoTrust label, the server automatically conducts a domain search to verify that you are visiting a legitimate website, it tells you who owns the site and confirms the currency of its SSL certificate.

What does the label "Reviewed by ValidatedSite" stand for ?

ValidatedSite is an independent trust label. ValidatedSite.com verifies that our company and the information available on our website conform to or exceed strict standards as regards ethical behaviour and commercial practices. The validation process includes the verification of all information provided on our website, such as the email address, telephone and fax numbers, the address, the ownership, etc... ValidatedSite also strictly controls the legitimacy of our company based on documents signed by persons who are authorised signatories, authenticated by a notary public and certified by apostille.

When you click on the Reviewed by ValidatedSite label, the server automatically conducts a domain search to verify that you are visiting a legitimate website, it tells you who owns the site and provides extensive further information including the site's TrustGauge rating; in our case the rating is a 9 (recognised as "very trustworthy" by others).

Rules of behavior

What services may I expect from the escort I choose ?

The Felines® agency hostesses are independent, under no duress and free to do as they please. Like with any escort agency, the fees depend on the length of time spent in the company of the hostess of your choice, and not on the services she provides. Our agency takes the view that time spent with a Feline should be pleasant for both partners. With a proper attitude and mutual sensitivity towards each other, you will share dream moments together; we just ask you to respect the personal limits of the escort you have chosen.

Am I allowed to ask a Feline for her name and contact details ?

A small minority of our customers do try to obtain the personal contact details (telephone and/or email) of the agency escorts, especially during their first date and sometimes with unseemly persistence.

Apart from the fact that this demonstrates an obvious lack of respect for your agency, our hostesses come to us precisely to avoid having to do their own promotion or organise dates, as well as to be absolutely certain of protecting their private and professional lives.

For this reason, Felines and the agency mutually agree to sign a "Convention", including a clause covering exclusive representation rights, confidentiality and respect for private life. It also represents an important guarantee that respect will be shown for your private sphere.

Consequently we ask you not to try to obtain personal contact information of your hostess during your date(s). We formally decline all responsibility should problems arise as a result of private information being divulged by you or the escort companion.

Alcohol, drugs, etc ...

It is strictly forbidden to push an agency escort into having too much to drink, or to encourage her to take any drug, no matter how "soft" it may be. Any demonstrated abuse of this will be prosecuted! If you see a Feline (mis-)using any of these substances herself (which should not happen), may we ask you to keep us informed.

Confidentiality

Can you guarantee absolute confidentiality ?

With us discretion is the golden rule! We consider your personal details to be confidential and the agency only gives the escort the information absolutely necessary for the date to take place (e.g. the name of your hotel, your room number, your telephone number, your last and first names). The Convention we sign with each hostess specifies that she is required to respect absolute professional secrecy and that she may not retain your personal details. On this matter, we invite you to refer to our Privacy Statement.

Do you ask to know my identity, and if so why ?

In most cases we prefer to know our customers and to build up a climate of mutual confidence. Apart from that, evident security reasons dictate that no agency hostesses can travel without both her and the agency knowing you identity. For short dates at your hotel, it is possible to give us just your first name and a room number. Depending on what time the date is set for (if it's late) and also the hotel policy, your hostess sometimes has to know your real name to be allowed access to your room.

Customer satisfaction

I am not receiving a response to my emails. Why is this ?

We systematically respond within 24 hours at most to all emails received (except during the weekend). Despite the fact that our agency does not send out spams and is not referenced as a "spammer", it is possible that your anti-spam software (or your provider) dispatches our messages to your "Spam" or "Junk" mailbox. Errors of this sort do occur sometimes with such software. We too sometimes find messages from customers in our spam mailbox.

Should you believe you have not received an answer to your request, may we invite you to first of all check the content of your own spam mailbox and, if appropriate, to kindly place the address manager@felines.ch on your list of approved correspondents ("white list") so this does not happen again. If the problem is still not solved, kindly contact us on the telephone.

Can I pass on my comments to you after the date ?

Of course! Customer feedback, positive or negative, is always welcome as it helps us to improve the quality of our services. Please don't hesitate to let us have your impressions and have a look at our testimonials.

What should I do if I am dissatisfied after my date ?

Our agency does its best to choose people who are compatible and likely to share enough mutual feelings so that the date goes off as well as possible. We are happy to give you more detailed information on the Feline you have chosen before you finally confirm the date; we can also send you photos of her face (obviously only for serious bookings). Your satisfaction also depends on your own attitude towards your hostess, and on practising impeccable personal hygiene. Nevertheless, if there is a problem do kindly contact us to talk about your grievances.

What about the discussion forums on the web ?

There are numerous discussion forums on the web covering escorts and agencies. Nonetheless, we suggest you take care when publishing commentaries or reading them on such sites. Some of the forums belong to the agencies and comments are on occasion posted by the agencies or escorts themselves ... So anybody can say anything they like, and the "moderators" of such sites are rarely impartial.

Captain69 - Escorts and agency reviewsAs far as we know, the www.captain69.co.uk website is a good reference, fairly reliable and correct. That you have to pay for access to commentaries shows a certain degree of seriousness. Although there are reviews of little real value on this site, our agency has a good reputation (A classification) and it is not our style to post "auto-reviews", or to give "rebates" in return for positive commentaries. By the way, less than 10% of our customers post commentaries on "Captain69" ... so the fact that an escort of our agency is not "reviewed" on this site does not mean our customers don't appreciate her. Nothing beats making your own experiences and coming to your own opinion!

Our escort agency

Who is the owner of the Felines agency ?

The company who owns and manages the Felines® agency is properly established in Geneva (Switzerland) as a Limited Liability Company (LLC). Our agency respects relevant Swiss law to the letter and refrains from violating the laws of less tolerant countries, insofar as it is aware of such international laws. In addition to our activity being perfectly legal, we also respect a strict code of professional ethics. For more information, kindly consult our "About us" page.

I would like to take a look at your book at the agency. Is this possible ?

Our agency is officially established in Geneva, but we never receive customers at our offices. Our book is therefore only available on our website.

May I meet the agency management personally ?

If you so wish, the director of the agency can meet you personally, in principle in Geneva. However, with the significant workload, you will appreciate that such meetings are only possible for major projects, sufficient detail being available on our website to cover most of your queries.

Legal

What is the legal status of your agency in Switzerland ?

In Switzerland, escort agencies activities are legal so long as the escorts are not acting under duress and that they maintain their self-employed status. Our agency can therefore do no more than represent hostesses who appoint us as their agent; there is no question of us employing them. Furthermore, each of the 26 cantons is free to legislate or not regarding this activity. All cantons in the French-part either have already legislated in this sense, or will shortly do so.

The official position of the Swiss Confederation on the subject is set forth on the website of the Swiss Coordination Unit against the Trafficking of Persons and Smuggling of Migrants (KSMM), stipulating the main laws that are in force in this regard in Switzerland.

Geneva is the only canton to have included escort agencies in its new legislation, which came into force on 1 May 2010. The law and its application can be consulted on line in the RSG (Recueil Systématique Genevois, in French only) at LProst (Law, chapter V) et à RProst (Law application, chapter V). It should be noted that the law prohibits minors from exercising this activity ... so much the better!

Our agency and the escorts working in Geneva are properly declared to the Geneva police (Brigade des moeurs). This section bears the responsibility for ensuring that all escort agencies in the canton and their management meet the strict requirements as regards legality, worthiness and solvency. This system, currently unique in Switzerland, guarantees that our agency complies fully with the laws and practices in force in our country and canton.

Why can I not meet a Feline in France ?

France only just tolerates the activities of escorts, but certainly not that of escort agencies. It is a question of national law and the penalties are extremely severe. The Felines® agency respects these laws to the letter and organises no dates whatsoever on French soil (including the overseas territories).

In which countries can I organize a date with a Feline ?

In Holland and Germany the laws are similar to those of Switzerland as well as other states, obviously so long as there is no question of duress. But the relevant legislation is actually very different from country to country, and even moreso when it comes to interpretation and application. This is why we ask you to check the legality of our activity in the country where you wish to meet the escort you have selected.

The Felines® agency and its management accept no penal and/or civil responsibility for you organising a date in a country where escort agencies or the activity itself is considered to be illegal. If for example you have a date with a Feline in Switzerland and you then decide to travel with her to France or to Italy, we cannot be held responsible for the possible consequences of your acts or of those of the hostess.

Can you guarantee that your agency escorts are under no duress ?

Yes, 100%! The Felines® agency abstains from any contacts with people of doubtful background and declines to work with any person who might be under duress (even simply a question of needing the money). Our casting process is very strict and we can easily identify candidates being pushed into this activity against their will.

Apart from that, in accordance with Swiss law and for obvious ethical reasons our agency condemns "trafficking in women" and does what it can to combat this scourge. If we think that an intermediary contacting us might be involved in such shameful dealings, we make the commitment to inform the appropriate authorities forthwith.

Felines.ch - New functionalities - March 2009

We have introduced a new menu on our website, both to speed up navigation for you and in preparation for the future evolution of the site.

The FELINES menu is now pull-down and takes you directly to the Escorts list (all escorts of the Felines Agency), Escorts search (our escort selector interactive tool) as well as to Testimonials escorts (feedbacks of the clients of Felines Agency).

The FAQ menu takes you to FAQ (FrequentlyAsked Questions) and to Search website (our Google custom search for our website).

The SHARE menu in our page header lets you share pages from our website with the main social networking sites, and to quickly bookmark a page on your navigator and send it directly to one or several friends if you wish (email function). This service is provided by www.addthis.com and has its own data privacy policy.

How to use the search tool in the FAQ ?

Our FAQ search engine works on the basis of full text searching, like a search with Google but limited to the content of our FAQ. You can enter a keyword, several keywords or a complete sentence. You may run the search across all categories of the FAQ or you can just select the category you want. The results are ordered in terms of their relevance (based on any of the keywords entered).

The search engine will not take account of keywords with less than four characters. It may be possible that the spelling suggestions shown are not always relevant for proper nouns or for terms not commonly found in the dictionary.

A more focused search is also possible using Boolean operators, for example:

  • A phrase in inverted commas (" ") will be searched for exactly as you have entered it.
  • The plus sign (+) before the keyword(s) you have entered means the word(s) must be present in the response sent back to you.
  • The minus sign (-) before the keyword(s) you have entered means the word(s) must not be present in the response sent back to you.

What must I do to make your site work best ?

The www.felines.ch website was not created with a website development tool such as Dreamweaver® or others like it. The whole site was produced directly in XHTML, which guarantees a clean and functional code. Furthermore, numerous technologies are used in our website to ensure its functionality and to manage it, such as: CSS, JavaScript, Ajax, Flash, PHP, MySQL, etc... But from the user standpoint all this is running in the background and provided you are using a recent browser you need not worry about it.

To ensure the proper functionality of our site, please check that the following functionalities of your browser are indeed activated:

  • JavaScript (in principle always automatically activated; cf. your browser's "Preferences")
  • Cookies (we only use Session ID Cookies which are automatically erased when your browser is shut down)
  • Plugin Adobe® Flash® Player installed (should be the latest version)

We recommend using a recent browser (preferably Firefox or Safari) and a screen with minimum resolution of 800 x 600 (1024 x 768 preferable) and millions of colours (32 bits), which is the case for all recent tower or portable computers. A broadband internet connection (ADSL or other) is also preferable.

Which is the best browser for accessing your site ?

In order to ensure proper access for most internet users, our site has been tested using the latest browsers and operating systems to date :

In our humble opinion, Firefox is currently the best multiplatform browser. Under MacOS X, Safari is the faster. Under Windows, Google Chrome is the faster. But despite all our tests it remains possible that certain browsers are not always in strict conformity with the W3C norms, and that certain pages of our website do not display correctly on your system. Should this be the case for you, please don't hesitate to inform us of your problems; we will do our best to put it right as quickly as possible.

Your website doesn't seem to work correctly. Can you help me ?

All possible care was taken for developing our website, which fully complies with the XHTML 1.0 Transitional norms of W3C®. Furthermore, we use our own dedicated internet server which is considerably more powerful than what is required to run our website. The hosting centre of our server in Switzerland has excellent and very fast connections around the world. For this reason, and unless there is an outage, which although unlikely remains possible, our website should be accessible on a permanent basis and work correctly.

Should you be having problems with our website, kindly check the following (if necessary with a specialist):

  1. That your internet connection is working properly (ADSL or other fast connection is recommended)
  2. The version of your browser (the latest version is preferable, Firefox or Safari are highly recommended)
  3. The version of your operating system (the latest version with security updates is preferable)
  4. That your hardware is running properly

Reporting bugs ...

Despite over four months development and intensive testing under Windows, MacOS X, Linux and for the main browsers available today, it is possible that certain errors (bugs) escaped our attention. In such cases, may we invite you to send in a bug report by email with the following information:

  • The type and version number of your operating system (e.g. MacOS X 10.5.2)
  • The name and version number of your browser (e.g. Firefox 2.0.0.14)
  • The type and speed of your internet connection (e.g. ADSL 5000)
  • The most exact description you can manage of the bug(s) you have noted, and of the circumstances under which it/they arise
  • If possible, one or more screen copies showing the bug(s) in question

Once we have your report we will try to correct the problem as quickly as possible, but you will understand that there is little we can do if the problem lies with your own configuration or internet connection.

And then the usual questions ...

I'm in Paris and I would like a date with a Feline there ...

This is the question we get most often... You certainly haven't looked through our website! As far as we know, Paris is the capital of France. It is mentioned all over our website and in all the profiles of our Felines that we do not organise any dates on French soil.

I would like to have a date with this or that Feline ... is she good ?

This question always gives us a laugh ... it reminds us of a sketch by the famous French comic Bigard: A person sits down in a restaurant and when ordering he asks the waiter "Is your fish good?" The waiter replies "Well no, sir, it's rotten ... of course!" :-) We are obviously never going to tell you a Feline isn't any good ... but we can of course help you to choose depending on your taste and what you are looking for.

We actually get more than 500 casting applications every year through our online form, of which only about 20% are short-listed and no more than third of these actually join the agency. It makes about 30 new Felines every year, or about 6% of initial applicants. So you can certainly see why asking us "Is she good?" really isn't the right question ;-)
