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.

Domino the house cat (!)
I thought I would blog about Domino again, give you some updates about him (even though it was not long since I last blogged about our cat). Since his accident in January, we have not taken him out of the flat, out of fear that it would happen again. When we move house, we might change this if we can find a place where he can remain outside, away from the road and overall safe. Although I understand there is no completely risk free environment. Overall, he did not mind the change. First because he was traumatized by his accident, then because he ended up liking the place. He does ask sometimes to go out, but never insists much. He spends his time here napping, exploring and re-exploring the flat (his favourite spot changes regularly) and playing with his many toys. Because now that he lives inside, we want to keep him active, so he has many toys, most of them looking like mice and birds. I sometimes have the guilty feeling of keeping a predatory feline in a cage, but at least he does not massacre birds like he used to. He is safe for himself and others. And he does feel safer here too, I think, at least sometimes. Domino does not like noise, so when it was stormy again last night, he seemed grateful to be inside.
