Bertha's Kitty Boutique

Listen (MP3)

GK: .....right after this message from Bertha's Kitty Boutique.

BK & RP (SING, ASCENDING CHORDS, MINORISH): Meow......meow.....meow......meow

GK: It's not hard to figure out when something is wrong with your cats.

BK & RP (SING, MINORISH CHORDS): Meow....meow....meow.

GK: But cats are terribly sensitive to human feelings, and when your cats seem to be off, the problem may be you.

SS: O Muffy and Snowball. You get it, don't you. I am unable to bond with another human being. You have each other. I have no one. Why? What's wrong with me?

GK: Nothing's wrong with you. The problem is that you've been buying your cat supplies at a big warehouse discount store. If you shop at Bertha's you're more likely to run into people who share your interests.

TR: Hi. Do you know anything about flea collars?

SS: Uh. Sure. ---- (TO HERSELF) Oh, be still my beating heart. Tall with dark wavy hair, strong pectorals, and excellent diction. My type.

TR: I have two cats, Fred and Ginger. One black, one tabby. Five years old.

SS: (TO HERSELF) Same age as Muffy and Snowball.

TR: I want to take them with me on vacation this fall ---- do you know anything about cat-friendly hotels in the San Francisco area?

SS: Just you and the cats?

TR: Yes. Why?

GK: Buy your cat products at a store that's devoted to cats. It's a way to meet people who share your interests.

BK & RP (SING, ASCENDING BRIGHT MAJOR CHORDS): Meow......meow.....meow......meow....MEOW.
