Miko: My Meals. Well, everyone was feeding me at first. There are people who pretty much live out of The Startup Centre, building their startups. I am apparently a great stress buster. So they tell me (can I get paid doing that? Must enquire!) Pet Parent has set some rules on eating times and diet now. So, I am being embargoed!

Miko:Ritesh and Aditya are my favorites. Pet Parent lets me sleep on his futon though.
