We ventured into Wortley Village today to buy catfood. There's a little petshop where kittens run down the aisles or sleep curled up on the counter. We go there because they stock 'healthy' brands of catfood with exotic labels. Our cat seems to prefer them (read: Mika will eat them) and the prices are actually in line with grocery-store faire.
That's where I heard the weirdest conversation of the week (even by Wortley Village standards):
Dee: Do you have any more Tiki Cat in stock?
Pet Store Lady: No. We just can't get any right now. Maybe in the future, but not right now. Our supplier used to get it straight from Thailand, but now they have to get it from the U.S. and the Feds won't let the stuff across the border for some reason.
Pet Store Lady: You might like Snappy Tom brand!
Dee: Okay.... Thailand?
For the record, I do not own a Tilley hat and yet, somehow, I can get into Wortley Village.
