Last week in “The Days of Our Nine Lives,” the cats and Doodlebug the terrier were discussing the wonderful possibility of finding forever families of their own.
Leia: (Peering through the cattery door window.) Hey! Did you guys hear we have another dog and two more cats?

Olivia: Hello, Jake from State Farm. What are you wearing?
Jake: Just my black-and-khaki fur, and a big smile on my cute face. Call me Jake. So, am I the only canine in this crowd?
Leia: Well, up until last weekend you had company, but Doodlebug accepted a gig in a forever home. Lucky pup! Hey, Jake, I’m kinda digging your one floppy ear. You’re cute, Jake, but really skinny.

London: (Enters the room.) Hey! I’m London, and I won’t be here for long …
Join us next week to find out why London won’t be around for long.
