Last week in “Days of Our Nine Lives,” Alice joined the family of ARF cats.
Bobbie: More news, my friends! Gather ’round!
George: Another cat?
Bobbie: Not this week. ARF has a new canine family member, Sheba.
Audrey: I’ve met her. She’s super sweet, and she likes us cats!
Mr. Gray: Then she can’t be half bad.
Audrey: And she likes dogs and kids, too.
Bobbie: Hey! This is my report, Audrey. Sheba is pretty cool. She’s not too big, only 32 pounds, and only 2, maybe 3 years old.
Mr. Gray: Is she here?
Bobbie: She is. Hang on and I’ll go get her. (Bobbie dashes out of cattery.)
Alice: Do you guys like dogs?
Mr. Gray: Some of us do, and some of us just know how to avoid them. Pepper seems to think they’re OK.
Pepper: Yeah, dogs are OK.
Alice: Oh! Here come Bobbie and Sasha.
Sheba: (Entering) Hello everyone. Nice to be here.
Alice: Hey, Sasha. Tell us more about yourself.
Sheba: Well, I like to cuddle, and I’m fairly low energy. I’m crate-trained and I love my toys. I’ll even climb onto a human’s lap if I’m given the chance.
Bobbie: Me, too, Sasha. A lap is the best place to be.
Sheba: I hope I find a forever home soon. I’m pretty sad, and a little confused. I’ve had a rough few weeks. My mom moved away, without me.
Mr. Gray: I’m sorry to hear that.
Audrey: I think the perfect human will find you very soon.
Bobbie: I think Audrey is right.
Sheba: I hope she is. I truly do.
How long will Sasha wait to find her forever home? Be sure to keep up with the animal antics of “Days of Our Nine Lives” each week.
