Reality Cats: The beauty parlor in question is an outdoor facility where several cats are apparently boarded (and fed like chickens all at once!)

A Siamese cat is seen being groomed and then takes a swipe at a cat (offscreen) that apparently gets too close.

At the end of the piece a group of kittens is shown and for some reason they are hanging on a line in stockings.
