My mom and I

My mom and I

No I am not talking about the old pepsi commercial that goes hot hot hot. I am simply talking about the weather. This is my first blog, so let me introduce myself. My name is Memoll (it means small and sweet in Persian I am told). I am a cat and I live with my brother Nemo (he thinks he is a big bully, but I think he is rather silly) and my mom Mythily. I used to live with a girl called Maryam, who was from Iran (that explains my name), but when she left, my mom came and took me and she tells me everyday that it was the best thing that has ever happened to her.

We stay in Bangalore and we live in an apartment. I remember Bangalore last year this time. It was cool and I used to sleep cuddled near my mom. But this year has been so strange weather wise, It rains for a day and all is ok. I love standing on the balcony and watching it rain and the cool wind blows on my face and I feel Purrfect. But these days I stand out watching out for the rains and nothing happens. Its so hot at nights that I sleep away from mom, stretched out on the cold floor and I can see she is unhappy about me sleeping on the floor.

Ma leaves a light on for us when she goes to work since she gets back when its dark most days. But these days, there are always power cuts and we are in the dark most of the time. I hate the dark when she isn’t around and I stay hidden under the ebd till she comes back home. My brother is very mean and he goes and hides on top of the cupboard where I don’t like going to. I hate these days when the house is all silent and dark till she comes home. It’s ok once she’s back.

I heard her talking yesterday about power cuts in a place called Delhi. She was talking about how nature is bound to react to all the abuse people lend to her and a day will come when she won’t let us enjoy her resources anymore. Why can’t people be more careful with power? Is it really necessary to have all the ac’s in a house on and always use power even when not necessary? It’s better to start now and try and save what’s left of this planet. Or we are bound to live in HOT HOT HOT places with no power forever.
