I got a really really nice email from my friend who lives in America. She is owned by a fabulous Siamese named Molly. This is what Suzanne said:
Dearest Baby Mao
I forget to tell you how much I adored your angel outfit!!Mommy picked out the exact costume for you to wear! It suits you to a tee even if you do smell of poo! Who cares with such pulchritude!!
This is what I replied:
Dear Molly's Mummy
Fank you so much for your kind words . What does pulchritude mean? Yao-Lin says it means stinky but s'ok cos I really do smell.
Luf n hugs to Molly and yourself.
