Last week in “The Days of Our Nine Lives,” the ARF cats learned that two dogs and two adult cats were joining the ARF family.
Bobbie: First off, did you hear that Fang and Bella, two cute little dogs, have already come and gone from ARF? And Dovey’s trial adoption is now permanent?
Leia: I have, and I also heard we have two more new dogs and two new cats.
Bobbie: Yes, more cats. I really like the one named King Kitty. He looks a lot like me, a gray tabby, and just like me he needs to be an only cat in the house.
Leia: He does look like you, and the other cat, Grace, is a Russian Blue. She is stunning! The dogs are awesome, too.
Bobby: Have you met the dogs?
Leia: Yes! And they are so, so great around us cats.
Bobbie: Who’s your favorite?
Leia: I can’t decide. Hey, here they are!
Girlie: (entering the room) No need to say it. Yes, I’m a very chunky shepherd-mix, but my foster mom is really watching my diet. I’ll be in great shape in no time, especially for being about 10 years old!
Leia: Hello, Girlie. I’ve heard great things about you. Who’s behind you?
Traveler: Hi! Pardon my limping, but all my paws are burned. I was out on the streets in the desert for a period of time, and now ARF and the docs are taking care of me. I’m the opposite of Girlie; I’m a bit underweight.
Bobbie: So, what we have here are two dogs who are great with cats and other dogs, yes?
Girlie: That’s right!
Leia: I bet there are some perfect families for all of you.
