Last week in Days of Our Nine Lives, there was speculation as to which lucky human would take home a bundle of joy for the holidays during the December adoption event.


Bobbie:  (calling aloud) I need all ARF felines in here right away!


Olivia: (leaping into the room) We’re coming!  What’s up?  

Bobbie:  Everyone gather around.  You know Leia has been our main source of ARF info as she is so friendly and greets everyone.  But there’s a new informant in town. 

George:  What are you talking about?  

Bobbie:  Leia is no longer with us.  She’s gone to a forever family!


Olivia:  Oh my gosh!  I’m so happy for her that I could do cartwheels!  

Mr. Gray:  Olivia, I wouldn’t doubt you could do cartwheels.  

Mr. Gray

Olivia:  Leia is so, so lucky. Maybe this is a good sign for us? 

George:  Maybe. And when the humans realize they may adopt us for half price this month, they won’t be able to resist! 

Carly:  Seriously. We’re worth more than any amount of money, considering all the love we have to offer.


Pepper:  We just need to make certain that the humans realize they need to spend a little time with us, to get to know our personalities.  

Heavenly Whiskers:  They need to remember that they cannot judge a book by its cover.


Olivia:  Book? There aren’t any books in here!

Heavenly Whiskers:  Olivia, it’s a good thing that you are so cute and entertaining…

George:  Whiskers, Olivia is much smarter than you think.

Heavenly Whiskers

Carly: And not to mention clever.  That girl is very, very clever.

Olivia:  And talented! Watch me leap from this shelf to the cat tree!  Weeee!

Heavenly Whiskers:  Oh, good grief.
