  16. Samit, something is wrong with your blog. Saw about ten posts titled “Kill the Russian and American Fuckers”…

    your blog’s been hijacked.


    Change your blogger password if you can, and your secret user-id.

  17. well, it didn’t look like your floor 😦

    Posted by motheater | October 15, 2005, 10:57 am
  18. woah, arm aching from spam post deletion.
    ok, where were we?

    aishwarya: the kittens look alike, dont they? though his looks a little demonic.

    ru: weeeeeeee is very nice. as are ooooh (s) and awwwww (t, eM)

    I do NOT like potolrani. Though I admit she does look like a potolrani. But she is chewing viciously on my toe at the moment, and potolrani would never do that.

    smita: why?

    sb: well, you havent seen much of my floor, no? also the rug etc have been taken off so they couldnt be peed on.

  19. …because Holly Golightly also had a nameless cat?
    I think.

  20. I once had two cats called Frodo and Toft. Then Frodo left home for a tough’s life on the streets. Toftie was dropped off yesterday at the house she was born in. And that was that.
