Some Memorable Lines
I gotta have a bird! I’m weak, but I don’t care! I can’t help it! After all, I am a pussy cat.
Brother pussycats! We’ve been skidded out, scooted out, backed out and booted out! But tonight, we was scared out! It’s unhospitabitatble, and furthermore, it’s un-cat-stitutional!
Sayyy, wait a minute……Tomcats can’t be mothers……Cats can’t lay eggs!
