Former Finnish President and Conan O’Brien look-alike Tarja Halonen lost her beloved cat Miska to cancer.
Enter Russian Prime Minister Dimitry Medvedev, who at a dinner in Helsinki earlier this week promised Halonen “a Neva Masquerade kitten, the same as my popular cat Dorofey,” Medvedev wrote on his Facebook page along with this posted picture, RT reported.
Here’s Medvedev explaining to Halonen that where he comes from, everyone has a dash cam in their car, the moose suck at Frogger, nobody can park, Kurt Cobain lives and high-ranking people give cats as presents.
As for the name, follow this logic: “Meanwhile, Finnish newspaper Ilta-Sanomat has suggested its readers choose a name for the kitten. ‘Putin’, ‘Vladimir,’ ‘Dmitry’ are reportedly topping the list, followed by ‘Brezhnev’ and even ‘Stalin.’ It is unlikely though that any of the names would really suit the furry creature, who is actually a female,” RT wrote.@JoshPetri]
