In which our heroine chatters

(A little background: Aleks, the guy who is overseeing our bathroom remodel had to leave town due to a death in a family. He left me with one of his coworkers, Yeager, who did the demo work. I had heard them speaking in Russian, but Yeager had also been introduced to me in English.)

Me (speaking very rapidly): Ok, I have to go now, and I just want to let you know that there is kind of a stray cat that hangs out in the back yard, well, she's not really a stray, she has an owner, but he doesn't feed her, so we do, because we can't just let her starve to death, anyway, try to keep her out of the house, but if she comes in it's not a big deal, just shoo her out eventually.

Yeager (smiling hesitantly): You hev ket?
