You know it's Sweeps....


...when a Reporter is interviewing a cat. 

Garrett Brnger of WICS in Springfield, Illinois, reported Wednesday that water rates were going up almost 30 percent.  Brnger said he wasn’t able to find anyone willing to comment on the rate hike, so he decided to interview a cat.

“You’ll probably be paying, along with your kittens, about $15 extra,” Brnger said. “How do you feel about that?”

The cat sniffed the reporter’s microphone but withheld comment.

“Oh, you don’t use any water,” Brnger said. “You don’t like baths.”

The cat warmed up to Brnger and rubbed against his leg.

“This is inappropriate,” the reporter joked.

Hang on their people, sweeps is almost over.
