Chat to your Cat:Lessons in cat conversation Martina Braun
Master Cat or, The Booted Cat(French: Le Chat Botté), commonly known in English as Puss in Boots, is a European literary fairy tale about a cat who uses trickery and deceit to gain power, wealth, and the hand of a princess in marriage for his penniless and low-born master. The tale opens with the third and youngest son of a miller receiving his inheritance - a cat. At first, the youngest son laments, as the eldest brother gains the mill, and the middle brother gets the mules. The feline is no ordinary cat, however, but one who requests and receives a pair of boots. Determined to make his master´s fortune, the cat bags a rabbit in the forest and presents it to the king as a gift from his master, the fictional Marquis of Carabas.

Steve Coogan is Alan Patridge, the chat show host from hell, in two episodes from his original BBC Radio 4 series. In the first of two cringe-inducing episodes, Alan meets ´Britain´s greatest living novelist´, Lawrence Camley, and tackles him on the subject of not winning the Nobel prize for Literature. Feminist therapist Ali Tennant demonstrates her work on Alan, with surprising results, whilst a vile slur is cast upon Adam Wells, ´Carnaby Street´s Mr Boutique´, when he attempts to promote his new fizzy drink Vegina. The second episode finds Alan augmented by an American supermodel co-host as they broadcast live from Las Vegas. Their guests include Hollywood star couple Sally Hoff and Conrad Knight, who persuade Alan to join them in a Las Vegas Medley. Next on the bill is New York Jewish comedian Bernie Rosen, who doesn´t quite deliver the goods as far as Alan is concerned, and finally the host with the most challenges professional gambler Jack ´the Black Cat´ Colson in a game of roulette at a great personal cost. Joining Steve Coogan as he squirms his way across the easy chairs are Rebecca Front, Doon MacKichan, Patrick Marber, and David Schneider. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Steve Coogan, Full Cast.
