Say what?

So, I was watching this french video on youtube about having a cat and I found it funny ( I just can understand some random words haha) at 2:39 in the video the cat says " Je suis désolé, je n'ai pas...(???)". I laughed hard but I feel stupid because I don't know the next words. Can someone figure it out for me? Thanks in advance.

Here's the link btw

Edit: And what did the cat say at 0:59

Merci, aussi ! I found the video very amusing!

Oh, I forgot the previous at :59. When the owner scolds the cat and then kisses him, the cat says: "Mais qu'est-ce qu'il raconte là? C'est bien ou c'est pas bien???!!!" skipping the "ne" in the negative sometimes happens in spoken French when in a hurry. They won't do it in written French though. Texts, on the other hand, are a whole new level of skipping words.

Sounds like texting in English....

I guess it's a matter of accents. The guy speaks with a regular French accent while the cat "speaks" with a southern French accent, which is quite strong.
