Last week in Days of Our Nine Lives, the ARF cats discussed their wishes for the new year.


George: Hey Sadie, what’s wrong with you? You look a little down.    


Sadie: Guess I’m missing Olivia and Leia. It’s not the same here without them.

Bobbie:  I wonder if they are missing us.  

Mr. Gray: I doubt it.  They’re probably spending time in a warm lap or snuggled up in front of a fireplace.  

George: Probably so. I’d like to curl up on a rug in front of a fireplace. It sounds heavenly.  


Bobbie: You’d look good in the fire light, with your orange hair all aglow.    

Mr. Gray

Mr. Gray: I think I’d look good on someone’s lap, someone I trust.  

Pepper: I’m with you, Gray. I won’t sit on just anyone’s lap. The human has to be patient and kind.  

Bobbie: Well, Grace and I are a little easier to please.

Mr. Gray:  How’s that? 

Grace: I think she’s saying she and I will take any opportunity to jump onto any welcoming lap.  

Bobbie: Yeah. Why make them wait to give us love?

Mr. Gray: Well, that’s you. I think the rest of us are just a little more particular. That’s all.   


Pepper:  More particular, yes, but just as hopeful for a forever home. 


Bobbie:  We’re all on the same page when it comes to that.  

Pepper:  Yes, we are. Forever homes, forever happiness.
