"Ma petite chatte" (My little sweetie) was the Belgian entry at the Eurovision Song Contest 1958, performed in French by Fud Leclerc.

The song was performed seventh on the night, following Denmark's Raquel Rastenni with "Jeg rev et blad ud af min dagbog" and preceding Germany's Margot Hielscher with "Für zwei Groschen Musik". At the close of voting, it had received 8 points, placing 5th in a field of 10.

The song is about Leclerc walking through a rough part of town and finding (and ultimately marrying) the girl of his dreams.

It was succeeded as Belgian representative at the 1959 Contest by Bob Benny performing "Hou toch van mij".
