Shiva and Jaya: Ohai Rumpy! And salute! We thank you for interviewing us. It’s an honor.
Rumpy: The pleasure is all mine! Please tell the readers about you.
Shiva and Jaya: That’s a deep question to begin with. We probably were deep when life no. 1 out of 9 began. Deep down inside the glass bin, that is. Somebody must have heard us and called the cops. In the UK, we call cops boobies…uhm, bobbies, we mean. MOL! Anyway, we were rescued and ended up in a shelter ran where we were bottle-fed by Patricia.
When we were 3 months old, we moved to our forever home where we have been since December 22, 2007. Our names have everything to do with what we have been through. Mom is a Hindu from India. Shiva is a Hindu deity with both a male and female side who stands for the part of God that destroys anything negative in life. Jaya is the name of the Goddess of Victory and rumour has it, she is one of Shiva’s spouses. In sum, we claim victory over the negative glass bin!
Rumpy: Wow! You were destined for greatness! How did you aspire to the position of Purrime Ministerettes?
It was hard work, but we announce to you with great joy: HABEMUS PURRPAM! The most respectable @pepismartdog was appointed as new Popie of Anipalkind! In the name of all nommable fishies on Planet Purrth, amen!
Rumpy: There is none more worthy than he! So, back to you two. Who do you live with?
Shiva and Jaya: That depends. Our office is on Number 10 where we live and rule and nobody else. Well, sometimes we give Cabinet members access to our office, but since there are a lot of documents inside that are classified top secret, we really have to be there all by ourselves most of the time.
At home, we live with mom and sometimes with dad. Mom is M. She is an 36-year-old unemployed writer/journalist who has been into ballroom dancing for 25 years and spends her time teaching. Then we have H, our dad, a 50-year-old 50 shades of phuqqed up foreign affairs political scientist. He travels all over the world and he loves us. Mom gives fishies; dad gives head scratchies. We don’t know who we love the most. We might just love them equally much.
Rumpy: They both sound equally fascinating. I am sure they feel fortunate to share their lives with you. What social media do you use?
Shiva and Jaya: You mean thingies like Twitter and WordPress? Well, those. Mom ordered us a somewhat scary iPod Touch in official Purrime Ministerette colors. This is him.
Why purrple? Because red and blue make that color. All things blue belong to Purrime Ministerette Shiva; the red ones to Jaya. We wonder if an iPod Touch belongs in the social media category. Not sure. Do you know? All we know right now is that there is a lot of music on it. Pink Floyd, Adele, Mariah Carey, music from the ballroom and much more!
Rumpy: Whoa! That is awesome! So tell me ladies, if you was a dinosaur, what kind would you be?
Shiva and Jaya: OMC Rumpy, that’s a funny one! We see it like this: if we went back in time and brought back all dinos, we would rule over them as Purrime Ministerette dinos. No matter how big or heavy the dinos, they would all be subject to the reign of the Purrime Ministerette dinos. No questions asked. You might have heard of those prehistoric big cats. Well, we would be the hugest. Just imagine a giant Shiva and a giant Jaya bigger than all USS’s together. Meow has it that back then, dinos used to eat fishies. We wouldn’t let them. We would have them eat snakies instead because we don’t like snakies. We are at the service of every anipal except for snakies. So we would hire as much dinos as possible as Cabinet members and Purrime Ministerette-order them to protect Planet Purrth from all nasty mean vicious dangerous unreliable snakies.
Rumpy: I love it! You two are awesome! Thanks for being my guests!
Shiva and Jaya: Ministerettes are at your service. Anytime, anything for free fishies for all and a Planet Purrth without home VCs and scary iPods!
