I can speak for myself!
An’ we’re waitin’ ta get adopted from the Little Bookstore.
Tell ‘em it’s in Big Stone Gap!
They know that, Hed. Anyway, me ‘n Hedley–
Hedley an’ I
No, you’re Hedley, an’ I’m–
(clamps paw over mouth) OK folks, lemme ‘splain this. Hemingway and I need a home, see. We need one pretty soon, ’cause there’s five of us foster cats here at the bookstore an’ there’s five more waitin’ up at the vet’s for a space to open. An’ Wendy and Jack are leavin’ the country in December, so we gotta get everybody where they’re going. So, come visit and see how adorable we are!
Hdlymcntmll– (bats paw away) Hedley, you can’t tell everybody we’re adorable like that! You gotta be humble! Who’s gonna adopt us if we’re not humble?
Humble? Be serious! We’re the cutest cats here! An’ the youngest an’ the fastest!
(sighs) Anyway, folks, come visit us. We might wanna be adopted together (glances at sister, whispers) although that’s not really essential
Wha’d you say?
That we have to be adopted together. An’ that we both like to be cuddled, an’ that we don’t eat wet food, an’ we’ve had our wormer an’ our flea baths.
(shudders) Baths. That wasn’t fun. But yes, we have. An’ we LOVE to climb in your lap, an’ we like to sleep in your arms an’ be carried around like babies.
Speak for yourself; I ain’t a baby.(pinching him) Play along, eejit; I’m tryin’ ta get us ‘dopted here.
(rubs bruise) SO as I was sayin’ folks, we wanna be adopted together….Why are you looking at me like that?
