So screens on windows just don’t exist in France. For someone who has an irrational fear of bugs that sting, this is a big problem. I don’t like to keep the windows open even when it’s warm outside because I hate how many bugs get in the apartment, and also because I’m afraid the cat will jump out and die (we live on the 4th floor / 3ème étage). So imagine my excitement when I found a moustiquaire at Gifi for only 4 €. However, the French definition of screen is this:
I know it won’t hold if Canaille decides to jump since he’s kinda heavy (he’s not fat, he just has a big belly!) but at least it gives him something to watch at night when the bugs are clinging to the netting and trying to get in.
