Now we are ready to start.
Presenter: Mary, welcome once again to our programme.
Mary, you live in the English countryside. Do you have
Mary: Yes, Craig, I have a cat called Bo. I named him
after Bo Didley, my favourite jazz singer.
Presenter: Tell us about Во, Магу.
Mary: You see, because we live in the countryside Bo
likes to wander out in the fields. He may seem too lazy
to hunt for animals but he usually brings home rabbits,
mice and a variety of birds.
Presenter: Dead or alive?
Mary: Sometimes dead, but sometimes we have live birds
flying around our lounge, which can be rather difficult
and annoying. We let go of them as soon as they are
Presenter: So, how long have you had Bo?
Mary: Bo has been with us... Let me see. We bought
him when he was nine months old and now he is 2. So
Bo has been with us for more than a year. We were a
bit concerned the other day. He came home, and he was
limping. We wondered what was wrong with him, he had
slight blood on his shoulder and we thought at one stage
that he'd been hit by a car. So we took him to a veterinarian.
The vet said, "Well, I won't be able to see the
cat for two or three hours." I said, "Well,
I think Bo has been hit by a car. Can we see
someone immediately?" The vet said, "Oh, I
didn't realise that the cat had been hit by a car."
And he started examining Bo, but the cat attacked the
Presenter: What was wrong with the cat?
Mary: Well, I think he just wanted some affection that
morning and he's learnt that if he limps, everybody
runs around after him.
Presenter: And the blood?
Mary: Oh, I don't know. I think it was probably a dead
rat or something. But it was all very, very embarrassing.
The vet threw us out and said that Во didn't need his
help and charged me thirty pounds!
