Hon LJILJANNA RAVLICH: […] Then one day, Mr Benn, who lived two doors up, was on his pushbike, going to work at the Midland Workshops, and I remember the knock on the door, and I answered the door, and he appeared there and he said, “I hate to tell you this, but your cat”, which was named Pussy —

Several members interjected.

Hon LJILJANNA RAVLICH: We gave all our cats the same name! We did!

Several members interjected.

Hon LJILJANNA RAVLICH: It must have been the migrant experience! We probably did not know; we just thought they were all that!

Hon Peter Collier: Pussy 1, Pussy 2, Pussy 3; so when you said “Puss, puss, puss”, they all came?

Hon LJILJANNA RAVLICH: We had Pussy 1, Pussy 2 and Pussy 3 for all the cats in the household.

Hon Ken Travers: Do you know that, in the movie Goldfinger, the other character in that movie was Pussy Galore!

Hon LJILJANNA RAVLICH: Yes, yes!
