Blogue d'un québécois expatrié en Angleterre. Comme toute forme d'autobiographie est constituée d'une large part de fiction, j'ai décidé de nommer le blogue Vraie Fiction.

Cats and the future of mankind
There are lots of stupid stuff one reads in the Metro, it is as ligh a read as one can find. But I guess that's what happens with a free newspaper. I read it mainly for Nemi. But then there is the odd article that for some reason makes me cheerful (like when I read about the hobbit home made by a Welsh family). This interview with James Bowen, a man I knew nothing about, got my attention like this. That he got off the street and off an heroin addiction because of a cat, I find it both moving and fitting. However I can despair of mankind, I never despair of cats. They are superior creatures. For some reason, they have not taken over this world. I think they would make a better job than us. But in any case, they make our civilisation a bit more civilised.
