Maria: Thank you, Mike, for agreeing to get a cat. I'm so excited. I hope they
have different kinds of cats.
Mike: What kind of cat would you like to get? I could only think of white and black cats.
Maria: There are different cat breeds just like there are dogs. You didn't know that?
Mike: Oh, really? That's interesting. I did not know that. How many breeds do you know?
Maria: Not too many. I could probably name ten.
Mike: Let's hear them.
Maria: Alright, let me think for a second. There's Bombay, Siamese, Snowshoe, Persian, and Ragdoll.
Mike: I counted only five. I thought you could name ten.
Maria: I could, but I just can't remember.
Mike: Which one would you like?
Maria: I would be happy with any kind.
Mike: Me too. We're almost there.
(Mike and Maria shortly arrive at the pet shop. They park in the parking lot and enter the pet shop.)
Maria: Wow, look at all different kinds of animals.
Mike: It smells pretty strange in here. Where are the cats?
Maria: Let's ask the pet shop worker.
(Maria and Mike ask where the cats are and are directed to a room where kittens are kept.)
Maria: Look, Mike, baby kittens. They are so cute. Can we take them all home with us?
Mike: I don't think we would have enough space for all of them. The apartment is barely able to fit us two.
Maria: How about two?
Mike: Let's just get one, Maria. I think it would be best.
Maria: Which one do you like?
Mike: I'll let you choose.
(Maria took her time deciding which cat to take home. After fifteen minutes of deliberation, she went to a small orange kitten.)
Maria: What do you think of this one, Mike? Isn't he cute?
Mike: Yeah, I like him. Are you sure that's the one you want?
Maria: If you like him, then I'm sure.
Mike: Alright. What's going to be the little guy's name?
Maria: How about Steven?
Mike: Steven? Isn't that a human name?
Maria: Why don't you name him?
Mike: Let's call him Tiger since he kind of looks like one.
Maria: Tiger. I like that.
(Mike and Maria took Tiger back to their apartment.)
