Last week in Days of Our Nine Lives, the ARF cats were happy for Leia’s finding a forever home.
Bobbie: Olivia, you know that I’m the new cattery 4-1-1, right?
Olivia: Yes, you’re the know-it-all. We get it.
Bobbie: Darned tootin’ I know it all! I know that ARF has a new dog.
George: (Yelling into the cattery) Hey guys! Bobbie says we have a new dog in the ARF family!
Olivia: Cool! What’s she like?
Bobbie: She’s a Boxer-mix and will celebrate her second birthday next month.
Mr. Gray: Very nice, very nice. I just hope she doesn’t upset the apple cart.
George: Olivia might, but I doubt this dog will. I hear she has very good house manners.
Bobbie: George, you are correct. Her name is Nala, and she is house trained, doesn’t jump on people, and isn’t a barker.
Mr. Gray: Whew. That’s good. You know I prefer a calm environment.
Pepper: So, does Nala like dogs? cats? kids?
Bobbie: From what I’ve heard, she really likes dogs and plays well with kids. We don’t know yet about cats.
Mr. Gray: When you say she plays well with kids, is she, uh, like crazy?
Bobbie: She is energetic, but she knows how to relax and be a good member of the family.
George: Maybe she’d like to go on walks or hikes.
Mr. Gray: Yes, walks and hikes would probably be good for this youngster.
Olivia: But can she open cabinets and jump from cat trees onto cabinets and shelves? Have I mentioned I can?
Mr. Gray: Yes, Olivia, we know. You are one very special cat.
Olivia: I am special! And I’d be a perfect holiday addition to a special family. And this month, my adoption fee is half-price!
Bobbie: As it is for all of us.
Who will be the first to meet Nala? Be sure to keep up with the animal antics of Days of our Nine Lives each week. And please stop in to say hello to the entire adoptable cast at the ARF House, 26890 Hwy 243 on Saturdays 10-4 and Sundays 10-2, or by appointment M – F by calling 951-659-1122.
