My name is Monk. Meow to everyone!

Do you have pets? Do you want pets? In this episode, Maura and Harp talk about pets! (Maura has them and Harp doesn’t.) First, they discuss their experiences living with animals and tell some funny stories. Then they talk about average pets and those that are strange, updating you on what’s popular in the pet world, and different pet trends they’ve seen!

Harp: Maura do you have any pets?
Maura: I do. Right now I have two wonderful, beautiful kitty cats.
Harp: You have two cats. Yes, I remember.
Maura: Yes. I have one big, black cat. He’s pretty cool and laid back. His name is Monk. And my other cat is a little bit smaller and she has three colours, white, orange, and black, and her name is Kneesaa.
Harp: They’re cute. I remember.
Maura: They’re very nice and kind cats. And Harp, well, I know Harp does not have a pet.
Harp: I do not have a pet.
Maura: I know that Harp does not like pets very much. Am I right?
Harp: It’s not that I don’t like pets. It’s that I didn’t grow up with pets at all.

You gotta see how cute it is!

    Hey Daniel,

    Thanks for the comment and the recommendations! We’re glad you’re learning something. The picture with this podcast is my cat Monk back when he was a kitten. Now he’s huge! I’m curious to see what kind of pet you have.

    Thanks for listening,

    Monk is very cute I have to say, I wish I could get one! Where did you get it Maura? Please send my greetings to Monk.

    Thanks for replying me! I’ve sent you the photo of my cat. It´s name is Milky. That’s because he’s so white and has one only spot in its head.
