Last week in “The Days of Our Nine Lives,” the ARF cats learned of two new kittens, much to Bobbie’s dismay.
Leia: Bobbie, where are the kittens?
Bobbie: Annie and Jane? Why would I know, or care?
Leia: They’re gone!
King Kitty: Because they got adopted, that’s why!
Bobbie: That was a short stay.
King Kitty: But they’ve been replaced by two dogs, and here they come.
Steve: (bounding into the cattery) Whazzzup? I’m Steve.
Bobbie: What are you? I mean, I know you’re a dog, but what kind of dog?
Steve: Good question. I guess I’m some sort of terrier or whatever. I’m only 11 months old, so I don’t know.
Kayla: Excuse me. I’m Kayla, and I know what I am. I’m half Pomeranian, half Chihuahua.
Traveler: Hi! So glad you’re both here to join the canine crowd, me-n-Girlie Girl.
Girlie Girl: Hello, Steve and Kayla. Hey Traveler, have you noticed?
Traveler: Noticed what?
Girlie Girl: I’ve lost 8 pounds! (sighing) You men.
Traveler: Then both of us have really made progress. My burned paws are healed, and I’m ready to join a family. And you’re on your way to recovering your girlish figure!
Girlie Girl: I am! And I’m taking lots of walks.
Steve: Speaking of walks, quite a few members of the community volunteered to walk all of us canines
around town last weekend. It was so nice. We met so many nice people.
Kayla: Will I get a chance to take a walk in town this weekend?
Girlie Girl: We hope so! You will as long as we have volunteer walkers. Mine took me to Fratello’s for lunch last Saturday.
Will the ARF dogs be out-n-about town this weekend? Be sure to keep up with the animal antics of “The Days of our Nine Lives” each week.
